  • Your image must be a JPEG, PNG, or GIF, and it must be less than 500kb in size. The image should be 150x150 pixels or more significant. Animated images are allowed and animate.
    • Of course, 500kb is pretty tiny. Most phone cameras, by default, take images that are much, much larger. If you want to use an image you've taken on your phone, you'll likely have to run it through an image editor or a compressor to lower it's size.
  • You can switch back to one of the default avatars or choose a new one anytime by editing your profile avatar using the same procedure outlined above. (Note: Each time you switch to a custom avatar, you must upload a new version of that image.)
  • Changing avatars is known to cause problems on mobile devices. If you cannot change it, use a computer or contact Fandom.
  • When a user is globally disabled by user choice or Fandom, one of the default avatars will appear, with only one avatar for older accounts globally disabled.

Choose your avatar wisely!


Gamepedia wikis use Gravatar to display an avatar based on your email address set in preferences. If your email is changed, the Gravatar account needs to be updated to match to change the avatar. Note that only avatars rated "G" will appear.

Gamepedia and Fandom avatars are separate; you must set both if you want your avatar to appear on both systems.
