No, actually. Are you talking about the little avatars under your username? I'd be down for that. Anyone else interested?

Not sure if we need to see your ugly mugs but a picture of your rink would be nice! :-D

LOL Good one Joe! Yeah thats what I was talking about. You'll have to excuse my poor computer knowledge, I'm not too savvy in that department. Thanks for the quick response!

Go for it, use them wherever you like - I'm not on that site anymore, otherwise I would have posted them for you there.

Enjoy!

Curious if anyone else has figured out a way to post an avatar pic for their profile? Was looking to do this, but cannot find a way to get a picture under 6 KB.

Anyone else able to find a way? Any way to maybe up that 6KB to like 60 or 100KB (which is still really small with modern internet speeds).

No problem if it cant be done, just always fun to see what people put there...maybe that could even serve as a thumbnail to a larger picture so that folks g=could show off their rinks.

Thanks for all you guys do! Great Site and one point all interested parties towards when thinking about making a backyard rink!

Best,
Mike

Mike,

I used Paint.net to edit my picture. Crop your picture to be square (150x150) and then when Save As, it asks for the resolution (with a slider) at which to save and it also gives you a preview of the size of the image.

Let me know if that works
