I see no way to upload an avatar.  How is it done, and what are the limits in size, if I may ask?

Go to the "Control Panel" tab on top and you will see the different options to View, Change or Delete an Avatar. It is almost at the bottom of the page.

Mine says "Profile Picture" not "Avatar" and I have already uploaded a profile pic.  I see no avatar input anywhere on the Control Panel.

Can you fellas help me understand the difference between a profile pic and an avatar? Is there a benefit of one over the other? If so, I can ask our technical support and get you an answer.

Rudy, avatars are limited in size, usually less than 100x100 pixels, therefor the resolution is poor, whereas a profile picture can be much larger but is only seen when someone looks at your profile.  When I look at your profile it shows a block for your avatar, but on the left it says you have no profile picture uploaded.  On my profile, there is a block to upload a profile pic, but none to upload an avatar.

How did you upload your avatar?  Are profiles different for different persons?  It seems weird.

Rudy,

I think the profile picture is just a way to "embellish" your profile and an avatar is a picture that is shown in every publication you make.

I just uploaded a picture to check and you can see above what happened.

luiginar, on the edit page for your profile is there a separate block to enter an avatar?  There is none on mine.

That is strange, because I have both options, as you can see below...

But I am a Moderator, maybe that is the difference. But from what I remember, I was able to upload an avatar before I was a Moderator, so I think that should not matter.

Maybe you could try to log out of the forum and go back in reinserting your info (user and password), and maybe erasing cookies and probably the forum will reset on your computer and it will give you both options. Just guessing...
