Setting Your Profile Cover

It's a fairly simple process to set your profile cover, for as long as you have the ability to resize your pictures to below 2500 pixels in width and 1500 pixels in height on whichever device you're using or can find an image on the web within this range (you can search Google Images by size).

Firstly, you will need to access your account and access "Your profile" in the menu.

Within your account, you will see that you have no cover next to your and somewhat above your avatar (or otherwise known on other platforms as a profile picture) except for the default pink.

However, you will see a "Cover" button as seen below:

Next, you will want to click this button. It will bring up a box with three options: Modify cover image, Style cover, and Choose cover preset.

Modify Cover Image

It's as simple as either uploading a file or linking to one you find on the web. In the example below, I searched Google Images for dogs exactly in the same size of 1200x628 and linked to it https://drb960u7vv58y.cloudfront.net/resize/114253/1200/630/image.jpg to set an image. However, I could always download the photo and use the upload option instead.

Once the image is uploaded, you will have to drag it into position to your liking. Don't forget to save it though!

Style Cover

If you don't want to use an image, and you don't like the default pink, you don't have to use either! Simply select this option for a color chooser and pick your favorite color.

Choose Cover Preset

At the moment, you won't find any preset covers in here. We would like our community to submit photos that can be used as presets in our private 1-on-1 to staff forum Contact Okinawa.Org Support to include your submissions in presets. We'd love to see some pictures of Okinawa!

Forum Look

This is how your cover (and avatar) will look when someone places their mouse over your name (desktop) or clicks on it (mobile). Results may vary with the background choices selected.

Restrictions on Profile Covers

In order to set a profile cover, you must post at least 1 message, whether it be a reply or a new thread, on the forum; this is to prevent automates spam abuse. I'd suggest introducing yourself, but that part is entirely up to you.

While these permissions are automatically granted to you, they are run on a time basis. Meaning, that for example, you might post at 1:02 PM. The platform performs a job to give permissions out to everyone at a certain time. This time is 20 after the hour. In the 1:02 PM example provided, you will have to still wait 18 minutes to set a cover photo, or longer if you made your 1 post after the job completed.
