Personal Settings - Password and Photo

more info

When you click PERSONAL SETTINGS in the login box (see 2.1 above), you are taken to a page from which you can change your profile data. The first part of the Player details page looks like this:

When you click CHANGE PASSWORD you are taken to a form which asks you to enter your Old password, New password and to retype your New password. You should be aware of the following guidelines: 

  • Passwords must be at least 8 characters long and contain at least 1 alphabetic and 1 one numeric character.
  • A password that was used previously at this site should not be used again
  • Do not use a password that is related your personal data like name, telephone number or email address
  • Avoid dictionary words
  • Do not use the same password that you are using in other online accounts

Thus a3ygib (less than 8 characters) or AmlaCsyZ (no numeric character) are invalid passwords. Alpha1Beta is valid but not very strong because it contains two dictionary word fragments. Alp17pha is a good password.

You should upload your photo in your Personal Settings. If you already uploaded a photo earlier, it will be visible, and you can replace it by clicking UPLOAD NEW PHOTO. On clicking this you will be taken to a page which has a button allowing you to choose a file from your computer. The file you choose should not be bigger than 4 MB and must have a resolution less than 3200 x 3200 pixels. You will get the chance to select a part of the picture which highlights your face during upload. Be aware that the final photo used by ICCF will be only 200 x 200 pixels. While it is not necessary, if you have the skills, it is better to first resize your photo to 200 x 200 pixels, showing your face clearly, using photo editing software such as Photoshop, iPhoto, Apple Photos, Picasa or IrfanView. 

 Please make sure that the image shows you in a suitably serious pose and your face is clearly visible, otherwise your photo will be rejected. Uploaded photos are approved within a week, after which it will be visible in your profile.
