Not sure if this question makes sense. I (finally) bought an avatar and submitted a file, which I know needs to be re-sized. I assume that some processing has to happen, and the image will be approved, or some thing, and I'll get a geekmail when my avatar is good to go?

A related question, would I be better off re-sizing the images myself (down to 64x64)?

Thanks,

Chris

There is an Edit Avatar link in your profile. You just set it there, it doesn't get approved. To where did you submit your file?

It should be instantaneous.

Click here - select your image - submit and that should be you.

I'd just upload the image and see how it looks when re-scaled. You can change you avatar as many times as you wish - you just pay once to unlock the feature.

Resize the file and it should pop up immediately.

I'm fairly certain that:
(1) There is no approval process for avatars
(2) Avatars load "immediately."

I'd also guess that:
(3) If the avatar is too big, then it gets rejected. There is no resizing.

There is re-sizing:

Quote:
Images will automatically be resized if they are larger than 64x64


But perhaps if the image is huge or above a certain memory size its possible it may being rejected or timing out.

Thanks to all of you, I must have not come back to the submit button after going to the purchase screen, it's up now.

Thanks,

Chris
