Profile - forum profile - add avatar from gallery

That should do it. If not just shout. :)

Hello, I tried to upload an avatar (pic of myself).  I tried a very small pic and then I used an avatar site but was unsuccessful.  Any ideas?

I had a problem uploading a pic to the Galaxy Zoo forum (though this one was fine). The techie team couldn't work out what the problem was. In the end I linked to my avatar from another forum and used the url for Galaxy Zoo. That worked. An alternative is to put your pic on a picture hosting site (flickr, photobucket etc). Is that something you could try?

I had the same problem! there was no error message, so i dont know whether it is a problem with dimensions or file size.

It didn't seem to matter what size photo I tried (I think 60 x 60 pixels is the limit) but linking via url was the answer.

I had to keep downsizing my pic until it would accept it.  However, it did allow me to upload from my pic file.  Jules, why does my page show I have no forum activity?

Thanks.  "My Solar Storm" page under forum says Member "No" and Under Forum it says "No Forum activity."  I was wondering "why" it says that.

No idea. ??? Try logging off, clearing your cache and logging on again. Often recommended and sometimes works wonders.

Hi Jules, the clearing of the cache didn't work.  So my achievements page still have me as having no forum activity.  Any ideas?   Anyone?

I've asked a techie. I'll get back to you gwnashjr. Just a thought - what browser do you use? IE9 is not compatible with Zooniverse projects. Firefox is.

OK - apparently since the forums were tweaked a few months ago forum activity won't show up on "My Solar Stormwatch" for new users. However, a new version of Solar Stormwatch is in the pipeline and all will be fixed when that goes live (no idea when, hopefully later this year.) This doesn't affect the tasks, however, as all our work is being recorded and used.

But never fear gwnashjr - we know you're here!
