To post a personal photo in your profile, simply go to "My Controls." Look to the left under "Personal Controls," You'll see a link that says, "Change Personal Photo." Once you are there, click on the browse button to find the photo of yourself you want to use as a personal photo in the new window that will open. When you find the photo, highlight it and click “open.” At that point, merely click on the “Change Personal Photo” button.

To post an avatar, simply go to "My Controls." Look to the left under "Personal Controls," You'll see a link that says, "Edit Avatar Settings." Once you are there, click on the browse button to find the photo of yourself you want to use as an avatar in the new window that will open. When you find the photo, highlight it and click “open.” At that point, merely click on the “Update Avatar” button.

If there is a problem with either of these, copy the message you received and send it to either zendiver or me. We’ll be happy to help.

Hello New Member and Welcome!

We hope as a trial premier member (you are upgraded within about 48 hours from the time you set up your account in the Surface Interval from Standard Member to Trial Premier Member) that you will upload a photo or two of yourself! You can upload one photo for your profile picture and one or the same one for your Avatar.

What is an Avatar and what are our rules governing them?

Avatar: Avatars are representations of ourselves. An avatar is fun to have by your name in your posts. Usually they are cartoons or drawings but we have chosen to use miniature photos of ourselves. When we use photos of ourselves as avatars, it lets us get to know each other better. It is easier to remember faces than names, especially screen names. Since our purpose is to get to know each other and to dive together, our avatar policy promotes this. Please note that the picture you upload or have us help you to upload must be of you. It can be a diving picture or a 'dry' shot, whichever you prefer. See "My Controls" for how to upload your avatar.

If you do upload a more traditional avatar aka a non-photo of yourself...you will receive a letter from us asking you to replace it with a picture of you as well as letting you know that we've removed your current avatar.

I can't seem to get my picture to upload properly and yes it says I'm a Trial Premier Member?

If you've been upgraded to Trial Premier Member or have paid your Premier Membership dues of $25 annually but still can't upload your picture it is most likely because the file size is too large. We can resize it for you if you can't resize it yourself. Please email the picture to kamala@singledivers.com along with your Screen Name so I know who you are and I'll get it resized for you and posted!

Ok so I paid my $35 Premier Membership or the $250 Charter Membership but I still can't post my picture. Why???

If you've paid your dues you will receive a confirmation back from me acknowledging receipt of your payment. When I send this I also let our Membership Administrator know that you've paid your dues so he can upgrade you from Standard member. If you do not get a confirmation back from me then most likely it is because I'm traveling. The easiest way to know if I'm traveling is to look under my picture and you'll see if I'm on a trip or not. If I'm not traveling and you've not heard back from me...please email me a copy of your payment confirmation if you paid by paypal to kamala@singledivers.com or ask me to verify I've rec'd your check.

Ok so I've sent you money, you've confirmed it and the file size is ok but I still can't post my picture. Why?

This usually doesn't happen but it is possible that you registered, sent payment the same day and I acknowledged it but you did not fill your profile out correctly so our Membership Administrator is trying to determine if you are over 18 before he upgrades your account. Please look at your profile to see if you filled out the fields correctly and told us your age group etc. If you have filled it out correctly then send me kamala@singledivers.com or Zendiver@singledivers.com an email and we'll troubleshoot the problem for you! Thanks, -ww

Some of you have asked how you can post a non-standard avatar of yourself from time to time...something like Zendiver does.

We have a couple of ways you can do that....volunteer to be an admin...lots of work but it allows you to post a non-picture of yourself such as the 'birdman' does or you can become a 'Charter Member' which also allows you to post a non-picture of yourself.

Some of us are not real comfortable posting our picture online and we understand that. You can opt out of posting a picture at all which we hope you don't do...or you can simply post a picture of yourself underwater! (Usually only fish can recognize our underwater shots!) :birthday:
