Any Avatar you upload is restricted to 19.5 KB or 100x100 pixels, whichever is smaller. 5 posts and being a member for at least 7 days are required to change it.

To change your Avatar, navigate to the Edit Avatar page. You can upload an Avatar by either browsing for the image on your computer or inputting the url where the image is hosted. Click 'Save Changes' to upload the appropriate Avatar.

1.5 - Changing Your Username
So, you're bored of your username and want it changed? well, you're currently out of luck as username changes are reserved for when subscriptions become available.

There are a couple of exceptions where username change requests will be granted. These are a typo in your username and a forum bug which prevents you having a user profile because of a special character in your username. If either of those are the case, contact olsen77


1.6 - Albums
To create an album, navigate to the Add Album page. Enter a suitable title*, description and select whether you want the album to be public or not. Making the Album private makes it hidden from everyone not on your contact list or a Moderator. You will then be taken to a new page with a few 'Upload Pictures' links to begin uploading pictures. Click the browse button and search with your files for any pictures you wish to add. Click 'Upload Pictures' to proceed to the next page. You can now add a caption to your picture, delete the picture, move it to a different album or select it as the albums cover. Click save changes to confirm. The first album you create will only hold 60 pictures. Any further albums will only be able to hold a reduced total. The maximum amount of pictures across all albums is 100.

You can also add any of your pictures to a social group that you are a member of. To do so, click on the album and then the 'Add Pictures to Group' link near the bottom of the page. Select the pictures you want to add and then select the social group from the dropdown box, click 'Add Pictures' to confirm.

To delete an album from your profile, navigate to the album you wish to delete and click on the 'Edit Album' link. You'll be taken to a new page, tick the checkbox and then hit 'Delete Album' to confirm the deletion.

* - Creating an album with 'album' or a special character(/, -, * etc) in the title may make you unable to add pictures to it. Avoid doing this.
