I guess this option is not working at the moment. I tried and failed too. Some parts are still under construction. Let's wait.

Well, we can put an avatar next to our name (look at me :wink: ), but only the albumcovers of the old albums which are in the gallery. Why not adding our own?

Until the webmasters give us access to our profile with a nice link, you can edit yours by:

1. Go to one of your posts and click at 'Profile' at the bottom. You should see someting like
Code: Select all
http://bb.jamiroquai.com/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=*****
in your address-bar.
2. Replace
Code: Select all
viewprofile
by
Code: Select all
editprofile
and voila, edit your details!

There are currently no plans to allow users to add their own avatars. This is partly because we don't want the overhead of having to ensure that people don't use inappropriate or animated images etc.

The same reason applies to not allowing signatures on profiles. I see some people are putting signatures in their posts, and we'd much prefer it if these signatures were text-only - partly to keep the forums looking clean and fresh.

Thanks.

if ur not gonna let us customize our avator then could u possibly do something about adding more avators to the list of available ones as it makes me feel cheap and nasty to have the same avator as someone else ... or close to near 10 other members :S

thnx

Absolutely, I feel like space cowboy 9 million - I am not a number, I am a free man!

I cannot believe that this forum is not going to be allowed to have an identity with real people visibly there, looking and expressing themselves how they want! This is supposed to be jamiroquai for goodness sake - does that mean anything any more?

Who wants a 'clean' forum with all our posts layed out like a row of cabbages? I mean can we not at least have a vote on this, a poll surely?!? Not too much to ask for a little democracy is it? Or am I gonna have to realise that this being the jamiroquai forum makes no difference to how it is administrated. I.e. it may as well be for fans or pork scratchings and then you would let us all have pork scratching avatars and there we would be, a community with the identity you gave us. . . no thanks! :evil:

PLEASE prove me wrong! Let us be ourselves!!

As for David's other comment that "we don't want the overhead of having to ensure that people don't use inappropriate or animated images etc" In terms of innapropriate content, that is your job mate, you are either admin or you are not. If you are understaffed, ask your employer for more help and hire someone like me who does this for a living :wink:

Alternatively, just chill and realise that if you cap the maximum upload size for images that we can all just get along and post lovely stuff like fan art and you needn't worry about bandwidth allocation or whatever the reason is you are bothered about animation - its the www. that means mutimedia, you can't uninvent the wheel!

Just a thought 8)

What tha ....?
It seems like everything at this forum must be strictly controlled!

Because all fans are not allowed to express themselfs in their own way!
You are not allowed to edit your own profile.
You are not allowed to add your own avatar.
You are not allowed to add a signature.
In a few days even your messages will be checked and censured!

And on the other hand there seems no good control over this forum (far to much 'double posts' or posts in the wrong forums) by the admin and its moderators.
This is not what Jamiroquai stands for.
I'm sorry, but my home seems to be Jamirotalk.net, a place where nearly everything is allowed (still there is nothing bad happening) and well structured/controlled...
