I use to have one but in helping another member I deleted mine personal one to test but that feature was no where to be found. Have a generic one now.

volvolugnut, if you have one ready to go, email it to me and I'll wire it up from my side.

Same for you, Mo. And anyone.


Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.

Matt, I see the attached file is rather large. Let me know if you need a smaller file size. Thanks for your help on this and the entire site!

volvolugnut, I made some changes. Can you test that you can change your avatar using the Upload function in that link?

Use this image. Download it to your Mac/PC, then select it as the file you want to upload and use as your avatar.

Matt, That works great. Thanks!

For anyone wanting to create your own custom avatar, resize and crop your image to no larger than 200 x 200 pixels and 154 KB file size.

I was wondering if this was an option.
Thanks for getting it working, Matt!
