I uploaded what is an animated gif on my drive but it posts without animation as my avatar, yet when I veiw it in my pic library it's animated. Can someone shed some light on what might be wrong? Thanks in advance.

It's because you are linked the thumbnailed image. If you remove the "thumb_" portion of the address, it will display properly:

Hi, I'm utterly green here, never used pics for an avatar. In my profile section, I'd like to upload an avatar. It says "URL" to link to. This doesn't mean I have to have a website, does it? Sorry to be so boorish. Thanks.

You can upload to the "My Pics" link in the top left corner of your screen. Follow the instructions after upload to make it your avatar.

This question has been asked countless times. I have a suggestion for the administration to clear up the confusion. Why not have the avatar link make the full picture an avatar, instead of the thumbnail picture?

Got it up now. Thanks. And, yeah, I agree this topic might be a helpful addition to a sticky or the FAQ. Glad to be a part of the community here. Hello folks!

Because many people have insanely large pictures as their avatars which means a waste of bandwidth for nothing.
