Avatars are images that display with your username next to posts. Although the image you upload is rectangular, avatars are masked to a circle.
To set your avatar:
- Click your username at the top right of a forum page and select Avatar from the pop-up.
- Browse to an image file.
- Click the Okay button.
Avatars are scaled to three sizes, depending on which forum page you are viewing. We recommend that you select an image that is about 200x200 pixels, since this is close to the maximum size.
If you want to design an avatar that has a different shape, make it small enough to fit in a circle of radius 192, with a background color that matches the forum background: hex F5F9FC. (These details may eventually change.)
