Title: Avatars
Post by: Teddy on January 01, 2020, 09:04:43 AM
Go to your Profile → Account settings → under Modify Profile → Forum Profile
Most of you have the radio button No avatar. Instead check Specify avatar by URL if you have it stored somewhere. Make sure the link starts with https://.  A field will open up where you can copy/paste the location of your avatar.
Or choose Upload an avatar. When choosing your avatar keep in mind that they are square, and that they do not show bigger than 150x150 px.

I am tired looking at blue faceless placeholders. It is not the fact that there are no faces, but they are all the same. Very boring. Please give me some colors. A picture is worth a thousand words, and I am a designer. Gimme me some sugar.

The flag avatars that you will spot do not load automatically. I changed the avatars for you that appear on the landing page of the forum, just so I don't lost in the sea of blue placeholders. The available flags are listed below. Let me know if I am missing a flag, but they are your last resort. Try using your own original avatar pic.

Not much to look at, I assure you. But I've uploaded my photo URL to my forum profile. Thanks, Teddy.

Dear MDGross,
You entered https://ibb.co/S3r8CPx which is an address of a page with your photo but not the address of the photo itself.
I changed in input to https://i.ibb.co/fxv5w2S/MDGross.jpg
Thank you for using your own photo. I take it as a personal gesture to see who do I converse with.

I'm sorry--I don't see any place to upload a pic for an avatar.  It looks like my two options are "no avatar" and "url".  What am I overlooking?

Iam surprised that only a few Members have posted their photos. Plenty of blanks and flags.

As Teddy says, it would be good to see who is who and not just blank spaces and Flags. Especially now that the Forum attracts great attention. It would look more professional.
