    Hello from Nevada!

    I am already part of several forums on firearms and I look forward to seeing all that this forum has to offer!
    How do I set up an avatar here, it tells me "Invalid file" no matter what I try. I have avatars on 15 other forums so I know I am not doing it wrong... Any help?

    Welcome to the Forum.

    If you're trying to upload .gif files that may be the issue. Only upload .jpg or jpeg files.

    or... I just moved the site to a new dedicated server, so there may be an image handler issue going on. For now it may be best to link from an outside source.

    Thanks for the response!

    I think you are having some kind of issue with both uploading and linking from outside as I get the "invalid file" when trying both methods.

    here is the file I was trying to link to:

    http://www.i59.photobucket.com/albums/g283/hifiwrx/AVATARS/FLAG50x50.jpg

    I tried uploading the same file directly with no luck. Here are the image stats:

    FLAG50x50.jpg
    Actual Size is: 50x50 pixles
    File type: .JPG (.jpg)
    File Size is: 4.03 KB (4,128 bytes)

    Like I said I have done many avatars and never had a problem??

    I'll add this to the other many things that I'll be configuring over the next few days.

    No worries just letting you know!
    I have owned and been the Admin for several forums myself so I know the work it takes!

    I am actually from Laughlin, I will be back in Vegas soon though, just looking for employment... I shop at New Frontier Armory in NW Las Vegas, best shop in Vegas by far!! Just tell them SCJeffro from NVshooters sent you... I found this place through a guy on Nevada Shooters they have tons of get togethers and shoots, many of the members there bring out full auto, supressed and other "NFA/ClassIII" stuff for all to see and shoot! good fun! Check it out!
