Hi, Raju~

Did you refresh the page? I see your profile picture just fine.

EDIT: Nevermind- I misunderstood your question. I see what you mean, now. I'd also like to add another bug to the list... clicking on one of your friends takes me to his profile page where I can, in fact, see his picture. Clicking on the others takes me to your PM list.

Cheers

Yeah... me too, now. Maybe it was a glitch in my browser? Interesting...

The "?" represents the avatar for the member, which LQ does not support. It's possible we could show a scaled down profile pic if available, in the future.

I do not have an avatar associated with my account (the penguin is actually part of the "root" custom title).

I thought that penguin was an avatar for a small reason. i.e. FAQ , we can the information as -- avatar will be displayed in profile page as well as in every post.

But Profile picture will be displayed only in profile page.

Quote:
These avatars will be displayed as part of the user info in posts, as well as in the public profile.
Quote:
Profile Pictures are photos members can upload that will display in their public member profile.

If that tux was only root logo, then jeremy can put 2 images for each post
  • root custom logo
  • avatar.
is this right ?

If he ever enables Avatars for LQ, then most likely, yes.

However, per my recollection of previous discussions, I don't see that happening.

Correct - LQ will not be getting avatars.

And it's worth pointing out that the FAQ page is largely a stock vBulletin FAQ. So although it discusses avatars, we don't use them here.

That explains a lot... I've always wondered why they were mentioned there and on the profile page if they were never to be an option...

Cheers
