Your Avatar

Avatars are small images that help to represent you on the forums and that appear next to every post you make and on your profile and profile card. Example of a profile card (you see this when you click on someone’s avatar in a post) is below. Netrider by default does not have a personalized avatar picture upon registration, but there is sometimes an exception. The situations are:
- Without a gender this is a question mark.
- With a gender selected you will get a default gender avatar; male or female icon.
- If you are a member of "Gravatar, and use the same email address, then Netrider will select and use that one.
- And of course, you could upload your own custom avatar.

You do not have to think about resizing anything. In the avatar editor there's a preview of your uploaded avatar, you can move the mouse around here to refocus the square.

Uploading Avatars

To upload an avatar go to the top of the page to your name and hover the mouse over it so you get a drop down box appear with a list of functions, click on Avatar.

In the first box you can browse file on your computer and upload your chosen picture to become your avatar. Your best bet here is a close up head shot but any image will do. The server will automatically resize your avatar, but it is recommended that it be at least 200x200 pixels.
Click on "Browse" and select an image to use. Then click on "Okay" at the bottom.


You can use "Gravatar. Gravatar is an image that is classed as a social avatar and can be used in many different places. You have to be a member at gravatar.com and upload your pictures there.
Click on "Use a Gravatar" then fill in your email address and click "Test" then "Okay".
