  • Kylie has a couple at the start of her video for her latest song:

    Those ones say "LOVE"

  • Also having massive trouble uploading/using a hosted image.

    I made my avatar 64pxl x 64pxl and tried uploading it, upload failed. I also tried hosting it on imageshack, and it said "remote file too large".

  • If you have an Android phone, with the "barcode scanner" app... you can scan the screen.

    That one above, has the text "Allez L'Quiche"

    Ha. I think it's Gabes'.

    I've made a new one for you... crisper.

  • thanks Velocio! but i'm trying to upload this:

  • I've uploaded it, but you should've been given the message that it's too large.

    Avatars are restricted to:
    64 pixels wide
    64 pixels high
    6KB in file size

    You had the heigh and width OK, but the file size is 14KB

  • oh.. thanks!

  • my barcode scanner doesn't work anymore

  • Have I completely missed the reason why several people have adopted this style of avatar?

    also used to add people on blackberry messenger. its called a QR code.

  • Yes, as a non-mobile phone user, I wouldn't know any of that. :)

  • don't be so harsh to yourself, Oliver, you're still fairly mobile.

  • My phone isn't, though.

  • My avatar changed itself a couple of days ago to the correct one and now its changed back to my old one :(

    Have tried uploading again but FAIL

  • ok I have a question. when not logged in and viewing as a guest I can normally see peoples avatars...but as soon as i log in they go. this happens on my android nexus one. home laptop and work pc. wos occurring? have a got a setting ticked that shuts them off? i cant see anything in the user cp.

  • Jaitch, go to 'edit options' scroll down to the section entitled 'thread display options; visible post elements' then check that you have the options ticked. Should work after this.

  • what a numpty... thanks ill go do that now.

  • I've clicked on the link at the beginning of the thread and keep getting 'page not found' is it not possible to upload an avatar anymore?

  • It's still possible. Most likely the address for that page has changed and Velocio hasn't updated it.

    https://www.lfgss.com/profile.php?do=edi­tavatar

    That link should work otherwise go to the top of the page and click on "User CP" on the line below 4th one across should be "Edit your avatar"

  • cheers oz I managed to upload it but somehow its not showing I used the User CP tab

  • im not able to see any of your avatars

  • You need to tick a certain box in your preferences. I'm not entirely sure where but it's standard for the avtars not to be visible. Spend a few minutes going through it away, you might find other stuff to fiddle with

  • I seem to be having problems uploading a new avatar. If I try to upload the avatar I get an "Upload failed" error. If I try to use it from an online source I get "Upload failed due to failure writing temporary file."

    As far as I can tell, the avatar meets all the requirements:

    Am I missing something?

  • I find the online upload works if you try it a couple of times.

  • Ah, it would seem that revisiting the User CP and trying again via the online method has worked. Thanks :)
