As an avatar, I tried to upload the first picture I found by imagegoogling "some ape", a cool gorilla btw, but somehow it didn't work.
Oh, I like it already.
Was stalking you guys for long as i said.
I feel to be in good company here
Also, how is that upload-avatar-pic working?
Sorry to bother but im not able to do this obviously.
Oh, I forgot to say: I'm not exactly a scientist. But I'm a sound engineer. So if youre having questions about acoustics stuff, ask me.
So did you download the picture to your computer first, or were you trying to link it from where the picture was originally located?
If you didn't download it first, it's probably better to do so. Then..
(I'll go through the whole procedure just in case:)
Profile>Modify Profile>Forum Profile.
Tick the item on the list that says "Upload an avatar"
Click on the "browse" botton and locate the avatar image on your computer
Click "Open" and it should upload it
Does any of that help?
