Are the pixels the right size? That may be the problem. Or maybe try some of the other file types.

Your avatar must be no bigger than 150 pixels by 150 pixels in size. Uploaded avatars from your computer must be no larger than 50 KB.

The following file types are allowed: gif .jpeg .jpg .png

that is exactly what was happening to me so I had to use www.villagephotos.com to host my photo and just use the URL link.

I don't understand why it's not working. It's what I did to get the avatar I have. I don't want to have to host on a url to get my avatar!

For me, everyone's avatar shows up except for yours. It has that thing where it's a blank box with the little red x in the upper left corner.

EDIT: That was made in reference to Penny...just said that since I posted after Kaiti, so it might appear I was referring to hers, etc.

Have you used one of these formats? gif .jpeg .jpg .png

Is it = or < 150 pixels by 150 pixels in size?

Is it = or less than 50 KB?

To make it less blurry try croping your picture to make the actual image biggger. This worked for me! And try saving it to your desktop and uploading it from there. This should work! B)

Good luck.

OK- I'm getting really frustrated. I took my photo off (it was an avatar) to change it and now it won't let me change it or even put the old one back up. It's the right size and I am following all the directions. Is something going on with the board? I have been trying for days! HELP! Thanks, Beverly

Ok, I have tried and tried to change my avatar, with no success. I do not want to post my picture on another website just to use it for my avatar here. I tried to change my avatar to something from the "base gallery", but there is no gallery to choose from! AAARRRGGGHHH!!!

I'm trying to update my avatar (again, I know... ;-) ), but it won't take the file. It's the right extension, under the size limit, and even less than an eight character name. Any ideas?

Try changing the size (file size and width/height size) a few times. That worked for me a few times.

You've put up an avatar before, so I doubt it's this, but are you editing personal picture options, rather than avatar options? Trying to update it with a personal picture would result in the error message that you're not allowed to do that and you should contact the admin. I doubt that that was the problem, but just want to rule that out first.

nope, I checked in to that one. I notice some general access issues with the site immediately after trying it, so there may have been some network funkiness (the technical term for it ;-) ) going on. I'll try again tonight when I get home (where the file is).

Wait a few days to try again, Tiffany. I have been having problems with changing avatars for a while now, so I pm,d Scott about it. He is going to look into it and see if there is a problem with the site. It won't even show the base gallery.

I got this fixed, you should now be able to update your avitars. The library is still broken (will be fixed soon), but you can upload an avitar from your computer.

Take care,

Scott ;)

    Celiac.com 06/23/2018 - If you’re looking for a great gluten-free Mexican-style favorite that is sure to be a big hit at dinner or at your next potluck, try these green chili enchiladas with roasted cauliflower. The recipe calls for chicken, but they are just as delicious when made vegetarian using just the roasted cauliflower. Either way, these enchiladas will disappear fast. Roasted cauliflower gives these green chili chicken enchiladas a deep, smokey flavor that diners are sure to love.
    Ingredients:
    2 cans gluten-free green chili enchilada sauce (I use Hatch brand) 1 small head cauliflower, roasted and chopped 6 ounces chicken meat, browned ½ cup cotija cheese, crumbled ½ cup queso fresco, diced 1 medium onion, diced ⅓ cup green onions, minced ¼ cup radishes, sliced 1 tablespoon cooking oil 1 cup chopped cabbage, for serving ½ cup sliced cherry or grape tomatoes, for serving ¼ cup cilantro, chopped 1 dozen fresh corn tortillas  ⅔ cup oil, for softening tortillas 1 large avocado, cut into small chunks Note: For a tasty vegetarian version, just omit the chicken, double the roasted cauliflower, and prepare according to directions.
    Directions:
    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a cast iron or ovenproof pan until hot.
    Add chicken and brown lightly on both sides. 
    Remove chicken to paper towels to cool.
     
    Cut cauliflower into small pieces and place in the oiled pan.
    Roast in oven at 350F until browned on both sides.
    Remove from the oven when tender. 
    Allow roasted cauliflower to cool.
    Chop cauliflower, or break into small pieces and set aside.
    Chop cooled chicken and set aside.
    Heat 1 inch of cooking oil in a small frying pan.
    When oil is hot, use a spatula to submerge a tortilla in the oil and leave only long enough to soften, about 10 seconds or so. 
    Remove soft tortilla to a paper towel and repeat with remaining tortillas.
    Pour enough enchilada sauce to coat the bottom of a large casserole pan.
    Dunk a tortilla into the sauce and cover both sides. Add more sauce as needed.
    Fill each tortilla with bits of chicken, cauliflower, onion, and queso fresco, and roll into shape.
    When pan is full of rolled enchiladas, top with remaining sauce.
    Cook at 350F until sauce bubbles.
    Remove and top with fresh cotija cheese and scallions.
    Serve with rice, beans, and cabbage, and garnish with avocado, cilantro, and sliced grape tomatoes.

    Celiac.com 06/22/2018 - The rise of food allergies means that many people are avoiding gluten in recent times. In fact, the number of Americans who have stopped eating gluten has tripled in eight years between 2009 and 2017.
    Whatever your rationale for avoiding gluten, whether its celiac disease, a sensitivity to the protein, or any other reason, it can be really hard to find suitable places to eat out. When you’re on holiday in a new and unknown environment, this can be near impossible. As awareness of celiac disease grows around the world, however, more and more cities are opening their doors to gluten-free lifestyles, none more so than the 10 locations on the list below.
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, the U.S is a hotbed of gluten-free options, with four cities making the top 10, as well as the Hawaiian island of Maui. Chicago, in particular, is a real haven of gluten-free fare, with 240 coeliac-safe eateries throughout this huge city. The super hip city of Portland also ranks highly on this list, with the capital of counterculture rich in gluten-free cuisine, with San Francisco and Denver also included. Outside of the states, several prominent European capitals also rank very highly on the list, including Prague, the picturesque and historic capital of the Czech Republic, which boasts the best-reviewed restaurants on this list.
    The Irish capital of Dublin, meanwhile, has the most gluten-free establishments, with a huge 330 to choose from, while Amsterdam and Barcelona also feature prominently thanks to their variety of top-notch gluten-free fodder.
    Finally, a special mention must go to Auckland, the sole representative of Australasia in this list, with the largest city in New Zealand rounding out the top 10 thanks to its 180 coeliacsafe eateries.
    The full top ten gluten-free cities are shown in the graphic below:

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.

    • Fmbm, Most fortified foods contain the Alpha form of Vitamin E. It (E) and Vitamin A used to be recommended for Lung Cancers but when the Alpha form of E showed no benefit upon a follow up study Vitamin E has fallen out of favor. Try a whole food source when possible.  Sunflower and Sesame seeds and raw Almonds are all good sources of Vitamin E. Here is a good article on the benefits of Sesame seeds for Vitamin E. http://inhumanexperiment.blogspot.com/2009/01/sesame-seeds-increase-absorption-of.html If you take Vitamin E as mixed (all the tocohpherols) or a Gamma form you are more likely to benefit from taking Vitamin E. Here is the National Institute of Health page on Vitamin E. https://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/VitaminE-HealthProfessional/ Fbmb (be careful) Life extension magazine are trying to sell you their vitamins but they usually have good research. If you want to read about why mixed (gamma and alpha) forms are better together then read this article. http://www.lifeextension.com/Magazine/2011/1/Critical-Importance-of-Gamma-E-Tocopherol-Continues-to-Be-Overlooked/Page-01 luckily most food forms are naturally balanced .. . while fortified foods typically only has the alpha (synthetic forms) and that is because it is the form measured easiest in the blood though as I understand it gamma is the more potent form in the body. I had a friend who swore by it (Vitamin E) in megadoses for his cholesterol but Vitamin E in the Alpha form at least didn't seem to help mine. But I did find raw almonds (or just Almonds) and Sesame seeds helped. Walnuts are also a source of Vitamin E and they are heart healthy too if you can  afford them. ****this is not medical advice but I hope this is helpful. Posterboy,  
    • My understanding is that some wheat has lower amounts of gluten.  If you have Celiac, that doesn’t matter.  But if you don’t have Celiac but have another issue - like a FODMAP problem- that might be OK.  
    • Thank you so much. This has been very helpful. I will pursue with PC. Appreciate your insights.  
    • What is the difference between American flour and wheat flour from Finland? When we lived in Scandinavia my wife could eat bread with wheat flour. We moved to Texas six years ago and my wife became severely intolerant to wheat. She can't have the smallest crumb without a reaction. She gets bumps and severe abdominal pain. Anyway, we decided to have some wheat flour shipped from Finland. My wife has baked bread and cakes with the flour from Finland now, and has not had a reaction as yet! Yes, she is still careful. She is afraid to overdo it and suffer, but so far she has been doing OK.  She has also met others that have been able to tolerate European flour, but not American. My wife has also tried other European flour, but still experienced problems, so there seems to be something different about the Finnish flour. It contains gluten, but I believe that the gluten content may be slightly lower, while the flour is top quality and makes awesome bread and cakes.  Also food grown in Finland are some of the most wholesome you can find anywhere.  I am interested in finding out if anyone else have a similar experience. My wife is continuing to bake with Finnish wheat flour and seem to be able tolerate it.
