Is it still possible to add an avatar to my forum profile? The instructions pinned here are obviously out of date, and I haven't been able to find anything just poking around.

It is, someone just needed to move you out of the "new users" group, which I've now done. And behold, you now have the, er, splendorific wondrousness that is the default avatar! Which you may now change to whatever takes your fancy.

I've checked your user permissions and you should be good to go! You should be able to add an avatar of your own in the Edit Profile page.

Click on your username on the top right of the screen, "edit profile" and the options for adding an avatar are near the bottom of the page.

They're initially disabled for new users but you should be able to do so now.

Does everyone need to ask to be able to add an avatar, or is it just a matter of time before someone moves you out of the new user area?

It's generally just a matter of time... You can add one now, anyway.

New registrations are restricted until someone manually enables them. Which I have now done, so you should be good to go.

You should be good to go: drop-down in top right corner where your username is, "edit profile", options are near the bottom of the page.

Any chance I can get empowered to add an avatar please? Whenever I try to do it it says 'improper image' even when the right file type and size. Thanks.

I've checked now, and you should have the ability to add a new profile picture! smile

It still keeps saying improper image. How annoying. Ah well, thanks anyway.

If you could attach it in a reply here, I can have a look at it for you in the morning.

Are you trying to link or upload? Uploading isn't enabled, so it might be that; and linked images have a maximum size of 120×120px and 100KB (well, the decimal sort so actually 97K), and only jpg/jpeg and png are supported; external URLs must end with one of those extensions, so URL-shorteners probably won't work.

If there's a wait time involved, that's perfectly fine, but I also want to know if my URL will work.

This is both a question and me testing my URL.

Looks like I can't FTP an image frown

You should be able to add an avatar now, and use BBcode. Just make sure it's uploaded to imgur or somewhere similar, with a jpg or png extension. It indeed has to be on a site using http(s) as protocol.

Please Help. I get improper picture type even though the picture meets specifications. I don't understand the problem.

Seems to work now sorry for any inconvenience caused.
