How in the heck do you update your avatar here? I have been trying to use a photo that works on Twitter and Facebook, but every time I try here it says it's unacessible.Does that mean it's still too large? Not crazy about the pre-chosen avatars and trying to fix. Any help is welcome. I've tried photobucket, btw. thanks.

I used an avatar I made for another forum and I didn't have a problem. I don't recall what size it is, I will have to check. I also use Photobucket so that shouldn't be your snafu.

UPDATE: I checked here in my profile and it says that my avatar is 48 x48 pixels. Hope that helps guys.

Jane: Looks like you got it updated. Is that correct?

Bill (and anyone else wondering) - You need to have your avatar hosting a third party site like Photobucketm, Imageshack, etc. (just like Lovemesomecards says). You should be able to use most any third party site so long as they don't block images from loading on third party sites.

Once you have your image on the other site, copy the address of your image. Then come back to Card Talk, click on "Go" and then "Personal Zone" and finally, "Profile". In your profile section, go to the Avatar section and click on "Edit". A new small window will pop up. Click on "Custom Avatar" above all the avatars. Use the first option "URL for your Custom Avatar". Paste the address for your avatar on the third party site and click the "Update Avatar": button.

I know it sounds like a lot of steps but it's pretty easy. Let us know if you need further help.

Harris, I tried photobucket and it wouldn't accept my photo. Maybe it was too large...
