  • Avatars

    The function that allows avatars to be uploaded broke a few weeks ago for unknown reasons. I have notified our parent company and they are looking into it. In the mean time I can add or change avatars through my Admin panel so if you need a change or new avatar post it here and I will add it to your account.

    Sorry for the inconvenience

    HI Kool. I am new here. Could you please suggest a good avatar maker ? Like we had in Yahoo Messenger long back.

      Sorry, I don't know of any avatar makers. I just made mine myself.

      I got my avatar to change finally, but I had to use the direct link option instead of uploading it to GDF. I uploaded the image to photobucket, then used the 'direct' link to import the avatar. It worked, yay!

        Will I have to leave the file on the web for it to stay active here?

        Yes, you'll have to upload it to a photo hosting site and it will probably have to be public for the link to work.

        It's not the size of the avatar, it's what you do with it.

          Good... glad you got it to work

          A couple work arounds we have found that seem to work if you are having trouble:

          First is has to be 80 x 80 no larger

          Choice one .. upload offsite to Photobucket or Tinypic or your favorite hosting site and copy/paste the URL into the URL space.

          Choice two .. upload directly to your gallery here and then right click for the URL... copy/paste that into the URL space

            Mine changed after I hosted it (thanks Kat). If you hadn't hosted your avatar it would direct you straight to the "save/cancel" screen. No matter what button you pressed, nothing would happen.

            If you upload a file and copy paste the url into the field you get the image and a slection box for your composition. Once you select a composition for your image, you're given the same "save/cancel" box as before. I could not slected either or. In my trying, I did select save at a point. I'm not sure if that mattered (possible break point), but on a page refresh my avatar did change.

            Hopefully that helps with troubleshooting, but so far the problem seems to be on image upload and/or the save/cancel screen. Good luck.

            That's pretty big for an avatar

            It needs to be 80 x 80. Then we can get it uploaded for you

            Also did you try the work around a couple posts before yours? Give it a shot, but if it doesn't work we can certainly upload it for you Tara.

                Not sure where you got those sizes. I would try this always up to date google doc with various social media pixel sizes.
