I am trying to change my forum avatar (I was able to change it on GC.com), it also look as if my forum avatar should have been updated but it didn't'

 

This is the message I get about the update

 

Important! If you make any changes to your profile and they do not update in the forums, click on the "Register" link on the forums page and it will send you to a page to update those settings.

 

I can't seem to find the "register" link can someone point me in that direction?

 

Thanks

If you log out of the Forum you should see a pink bar at the top with the "Register" link...It doesn't appear when you're still logged in.

 

Since the new "Hello" box is bound and determined to display my forum avatar rather than my profile avatar I have done backflips to change my forum avatar. No matter what i do (remove upload, change, reset) the "Hello" box doesn't change

 

Has anyone found a way to fix this?

Can someone spell out the actual url for the 'register' link. ...
I still have it (from: Choose My Avatar - hxxp: / / www.geocaching.com/my/avatar.aspx?guid=###...) as:

 

http://www.geocaching.com/forums/register.aspx

 

and

(from: the left hand side navigation bar - Getting Started, Hide & Seek a Cache, etc...) I have it as:

 

http://www.geocaching.com/forums/

 

Plus my Avatar changes have been confirmed as of now but

I did log-out, cleared cookies/cache, and then log-in back in,

but no strong trace backs exist as to that being an actual solution.

 

Edited: Munged a descriptive URL

That's about what I thought.

But those links are redirected directly to forums.Groundspeak.com or forums.Groundspeak.com/gc therefore bypassing the 'register' page.

 

P.S. The Powers That Be have decided that all occurances of the work Groundspeak are supposed to be capitalized, I have not capitilized it any time I've spelled it out.

Good point, as of now the "Register Your Avatar Changes" URLs are redirecting to the Groundspeak Forums directly.

 

And to retract my last observation,

my avatar has not updated in the Forum as this posting either...

 

I too lend my hope (and actually somehow knowing...) They are working on it.

You have to log out of the forums at the top of the page then you will see the register link. Although, I also haven't been able to update my avatar.

Trying to help a friend set up their account to enter the forums and have encountered the same problem. Set up for an avatar in her profile page, but it will not show in the forums. Logged out to hit the Register link as the instructions state, but no help. Thought it was me but apparently not. Any suggestions?

It's on the list of stuff to fix. In this post OpinioNate has this to say about it:

 

You might have noticed that the intermediate step between clicking the forum link, and actually landing on the forum was removed. I believe there were some unintended consequences to removing this step, which I'll have the devs look into. I'm sorry for the confusion!

What about the distorted avatars? Mine shows normal in my profile, but in the forum it's distorted. I read somewhere that they went to a square format so anything rectangular is crunched from top to bottom. Does anyone know if they are going to fix it or will I have to use a different avatar? I emailed them, but so far no answer.

Yep, I think everything is squished to 75x75, so having a 75x75 image to start out with is obviously the best.
