Suggestion re: avatars

Post by CanuckGamer33 » August 16th, 2020, 9:54 pm

I would suggest you do something so that it's not practically impossible for people to upload an avatar. I joined the site a couple of days ago and had an issue right away but didn't have time to get into it. I have come back three times trying to solve the issue and have even tried a third party website that someone suggested on this site to automatically resize a picture but that didn't work either. Although I am no computer wiz, I am a pretty intelligent adult and I have resized pictures for the purposes of 'fitting' them onto websites before but this has to be something else. It's annoying and I hope you're able to simplify the process soon.

Nobody else seems to have a problem.

Several years ago, I used a Microsoft desktop tool to copy the image I selected from a website, i then used Microsoft paint to resize and change the file format to load the image I use as my avatar. This was all done with standard no frills Microsoft Desktop tools. In my case it was multistep process.

This just documents the procedure on Bowling chat.

It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so

There should be a rule of war saying you have to see someone up close and get to know 'em before it's ok to shoot 'em
