After you've registered and activated your new Apnea Board member account, we'd like you to select a member Avatar. (an "avatar" is the picture you see below your username - (like the sleeping man under my username).
We have a wide variety of avatars that you can select from. In order to chose an avatar, click on your User CP (User Control Panel) at the top left of the forum. This will take you to a control panel area where you can customize many options for your forum account. On the left side, you'll see a directory tree. Under the area called Your Profile, simply select Change Avatar. Or, you can click here to change your avatar.
From there, you'll see a drop-down list of Avatar Galleries. You can select one from one of those options, or you can upload an avatar that you've created yourself. The file size limit is 100 kilobytes (KB). The forum software will automatically re-size your avatar picture to 120 x 120 pixels. So it's best to use an avatar that is roughly square-shaped already. Otherwise, your avatar may be slightly distorted. If it is distorted-- no problem, you can easily change your avatar at any time - as many times as you wish. There are several websites where you can create your own avatar for free, like this one.
On behalf of our Wiki Editors, Master Members, Monitors, Moderators and Administrators... Welcome to our group of "hoseheads"! We hope you enjoy your membership!
