Gday guys... just wondering what the go is with custom profile images? tried a few hosting sites , different formatting of links, sized etc... nothing seems to stick.

Tips? Suggestions? Rotten Fruit?

Thanks  :)

check the size - we have a pretty small avatar image size, anything larger won't work.
generally you need to resize the image before uploading.

ah ha - that works.
just attach your avatar to a post and use the link from the post in the box for the web address in your profile - like I've done with the zebra-ant :-) (it's a hybrid ;-)

hey thanks guys, C_A - most helpful!

I tried resizing down to about 100x75... any idea what the limit actually is? Had a hunt but can't seem to find a reference to it.

Some bright spark will belt me over the head with a Big Obvious Link in a minute... I like bright sparks :D

Nice ant btw.

specially adapted to blend in with black n white weavework, and possibly zebra crossings.

Yeah we're a handsome bunch of cavemen, would be a shame to keep it from the world wouldn't it now? ;)

if you crop your image down and lose most of the bowl and background it'll look better as an avatar jax :-)

and you two can't be cavemen - no beards ;-)

Oh I have a beard, the red hair just gets lost in the red skin when I use my phone to take the pic. [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

CA raises a good point. Must get a more up to date (ie not 4 or 5 years old ) photo in my full feral glory.

Follically challenged or gifted types needn't be feeling left out of anything... we can't all be of the kinda caveman stock that explains why some people got around to inventing the "back,sack n crack wax" a looong time before others  ;)

The words of a man who wants to but won't admit it lol

Cropping worked great - but you've turned blue and lost your smurf hat :-)

I gave in a year or so ago and just let the damned stuff grow. And grow. And grow. Until it threatened to break out of the house one night and lurch down the hill moaning "brains....brains...." but I let it stay on until the end of winter.

It is making a steady counter-assault after I decimated it with a surprise dawn raid a few months back.

Strangely enough if you do grow a big honking faceful and then shear it all off you find yourself thinking you've forgotten something or left something at home :P and suddenly you have a lot of free time because thoughtfully scratching it was taking up two hours a day.

lmao - is that why I never seem to have any spare time lol
you might be on to something there - I know david morningstar spends about 4 hours a day playing with his hair ;-) (badger will back me up on this lol)

Beard stroking/fiddling is very therapeutic though.
I'd say it keeps me sane - but nobody would buy that ;-) lmao

looks as sane as anyone else I've seen for a while.

in fact I cannot remember the last time I saw a Saddhu throw a tanty  ;)
