It hasn't worked unless you meant profile. In which case you have managed to put the pic in your profile :)

Yeah. I know. I have tried really hard (again) with no joy.

I notice that your avatar properies are "http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/user_profile/images/8179000_avatar.jpg"

How do I get my avatar in my user_profile/images/ folder?

I have tried http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/create_profile.php and there is a "profile picture shown to the left".

But no joy, again.

Honest - my avatar is a .jpg file.
It's tiny.
It's been around for 10+ years.

WTF?

Go to your main account page.
You will see a link for 'community preferences'.
There you can enter your jpg for your avatar.

That is your profile picture, you want to go to community preferences instead.

Ray once You get to the page everyone else pointed at, You will need to upload the pic and It's in the area marked under message boards.

Avatar
An image representing you on the message boards.
Format: JPG or PNG. Size: at most 4 KB, 100x100 pixels


Note the size of 100x100 is what is displayed here for all to see, what you upload can be bigger and I've often done that to get a better avatar pic, good luck.

Oopsie, looks like Your avatar is showing now after I posted. Good Job!

Thanks for your link arkayn - it worked.
Thanks for everyone else's help, truly.

I'd like the same (ugly) avatar on all BOINC message boards/forums.

I'm sure I did all the right stuff before:- via standard SETI/BOINC links and it did NOT work.

Cheers, Ray

Anyway, happy now on SETI regardless of what the avatar shows ;-)))

"what you upload can be bigger and I've often done that to get a better avatar pic"

Interesting. Thanks for that.

I've adjusted the avatar to a better (!you decide!) image, sucessfully, by again following the link that arkayn provided.

Still would like to know how to use the same (ugly) avatar on all BOINC message boards/forums.

Anyone?

Thanks, Ray

You're going to have to load the same image on all the projects that You crunch on and that You post on, that's the way I do this as that's the only way to do this. Of course I don't post all that much elsewhere, so I haven't updated My avatar elsewhere yet.

If you want all of the avatars to be the same, go to Gravatr open an account and host your avatar there. Then on the link that Arkayn gave you choose "Use a Globally Recognized Avatar provided by Gravatar.com" You can do this in every project you participate in. This way you will have the same avatar on all of the projects and only need to make the change in one place.
