I go to my profile, click on the default avatar, det the option so select one image file of my choice, click OK and voila - I have a new new avatar! But when I go back to the forum - foom - the avatar is gone. It won't stick.
Some people have managed to do this, so what's the trick?
I would love to upload an avatar for myself. But I cannot find any information about what size the avatar image should be.
I also see that most avatars seem to be circular. Is it because the forum cuts out a circular portion of the uploaded avatar or is it that everyone here seems to have uploaded a circular image (which I find unlikely)? Because if the forum does it, I need to account for it when designing the image, so nothing essential is removed.
