    Hi guys as you have noticed on xenforo your avatar plays a major role on threads and the overall feel of the site. I would like everyone to have a suitable avatar and get into getting a uniform appearance.

    Can everyone take a few minutes and uploads a suitable avatar and where possible to exceed 192 pixels for good quality and make sure it's square .Members from the old Vbulletin will need to update their avatars as they are stored in incorrect format which caused them to get pixelated or cropped as all avatars are not square. Lastly Please layoff the rude avatars.

    How to add avatar in HK?

    Hover around your username and click avatar from the drop down menu and you are good to go.

    Go for it guys. The forum will look so much better when everyone has their own Avatar. You'll see it places you don't expect, like in the corner of threads where you have replied, so looking at the list of threads in a sub-forum, you can immediately see which threads you have posted in.

    GIFs can be a bit obtrusive at times :Whistle:

    The system is currently set-up to work with JPG and PNG files, downsizing and optimising the file for the exact dimensions of the avatar box as needed.

    Linking to it is one thing, downsizing and optimising the file is another box of frogs :eek:

    Where possible everything is stored locally on the site :Fear: We try to stop dead links and all the external connections which slow down browsing :Innocent:
