    Hi

    I've been trying to get my profile picture to show.
    It's the same one that I use on the Windows 7 forum.

    If I look in settings I can see it in the Edit Profile Picture window.
    But it doesn't show up in the forum.

    Another question, does the profile picture option support animated gifs?

    I used to make a lot of these that I used on various game forums etc.

    Mike

    You want your picture to show as an avatar on the threads or just in your profile area?

    On the threads as I have it on the Windows 7 forums.
    same as you are using the Windows 8 logo.

    Ok I just realized the difference between Profile Picture and Avatar. LOL

    I still can't get it to work though, it seems that they have reduced the size limitation.
    My 64k file is too large to use either by upload or from a online site.

    As you can see I made it very tiny and it will now show.

    I don't know what has happened to the size limit, but I had some problems with it to.
