OK - Kirk, are you still having issues with your Mac?
Avatars are now enabled. In order to make yours active you need to:
- Go to your profile page and scroll to the bottom
- Choose to upload an image that is less than 20kb large and is exactly 80 x 80 pixels in dimension (use Photoshop to Crop an image, set the crop dimensions to 80 x 80 and draw a box with the crop tool, hit enter and save the image)
- Once selected choose to “submit” your changes to your profile and your Avatar should show up.
If you already tried this with no good results you will need to erase your current selected image and re-upload the image. The folder that the Avatars were supposed to be saved to was locked so it was preventing people from uploading images.
