    Trying to upload an avatar and each time I try I get a different message as to why I can't. Can this be done from mobile devices or must it be done from a computer ? First message was to large, so I shrank the file, then it was to large (over 59kb) so I emailed it to myself shrinking it even more and now I get that the file extension doesn't match the content. I'll use a computer if I have to, I just don't own one anymore. I use tablets and phones for just about everything these days.

    Hmm....so long since I did this I'm not sure.
    One for @snowbunny i think.
    I know I have to resize my photos before I can post (I have a samsung galaxy and the photos are huuuuge)
    The forum used to automatically resize the avatars, so not sure what the story is now.

    Sorted the Avatar. Now working on uploading photos. Seems to me the best route is to become a supporter. I don't use paypal, can I just use a Canadian MasterCard ?

    Your options are to use a third-party host like Flickr, PhotoBucket or Imgur, or to become a forum supported, which allows you to upload file. Instructions for both of these options are in the Technical section (I can post links if you need).

    I have to say, I'm not sure about your Mastercard, but Paypal normally allows you to pay by card without actually registering. Give it a go and let me know if you come up against problems.
