Dear Dhamma Wheel members,

This is an important notice directed to current members with avatars. Those who have avatars--profile images--with a width over 202 pixels are risking their Private Messages (PMs) hiding the text of the message. The avatar image overlaps over the text of the message in those wider than around 202 pixels.


All new registrations have avatars restricted to 170px width.

All current members who have an avatar over 170px should reduce theirs now. I can't do it from here, from my control panel, so you need to do it yourselves. To shrink it down to 170 pixels, do the following.

* Go to your user control panel http://dhammawheel.com/ucp.php.
* Click the Profile tab.
* Click 'Edit avatar' on the lefthand links bar.
* Go in Paint and shrink your image down from your hard drive. (CTRL + W will bring up a menu to shrink the proportions down.) This is a hard step. You may PM me (TheDhamma) if you need help with this step.
* Reupload the image.
* Hit submit...

And you're done.

Thanks David...I was wondering what was happening...although reducing it to 202 pixels wasn't enough, I had to go to 170 to be close to the line...I think this will apply to everyone...you may want to edit the maximum number...

Take care...and a Happy New Year to you and your family...I'm sure Vegas is jumping...(I used to be a croupier at the Stardust in the early '70's... :o

I am sooooo happy - How on earth could I be otherwise?! :D

David, I have no "Paint" option appearing, so am stuck. :?

Bhante Appicchato, it must be our varied pixel settings, because you see your avatar as "close to the line", I see it with enough space to put another the same size next to it.
