hi there. when I go to my avitar, it tells me I do not have priviledges. I am pretty new to the boards so do I need to log in a certain amount of time/messages before I can have the privilege of adding a picture?

well as you can see, I figured it out! Thanks

You are probably going to the personal picture part, no one is authorized to have that, not sure why, make sure you go you your avatar settings in the my conrols part. then you should be able to change it.

no one knows about the personal picture setting, it is just how the board is made up.

why is it that everytime I go to try and post my photo on my profile the site keeps telling me ... Sorry, the board administrator has not enabled your permissions for this part of the control panel. Is there some loop hole I am not jumping through?...Anyone else have this problem?

I am trying to post a photo and went to the avatar thing but my picture is over 50KB is there a way of making it smaller or fixing this at all?

I can do it for you if you email it to me. PM me.

I just went through the same thing. Open up the picture & up in the tool bar it should have the word "picture", (I'm using Microsoft picture). Click on that & go down to compress picture. Off to the side I clicked on "web page". That took it down to 27 KB. Also do a Save as so that you have both size pictures saved.

Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

I just changed my avatar tonight. Go to "My Controls." On the left menu click "Edit Avatar Settings." The select one of the provided pictures or hit "Browse" to upload your own. You might want to make sure it isn't too large. Good luck!

Mamaw,

I would love to see your picture! :D

Follow the steps that My Suicidal Turtle gave you, and then you may have to keep re-sizing the picture down until it takes it.

I've had some that went through right away, and others that I had to change the size several times before it would work. Use "crop" and adjust the size down from there.

Good luck--I hope it will work for you!

I am having troubles changing my avatar picture. Pretty often actually. The old one keeps on coming back instead of the new one. I even delete my avatar so there is none and then upload a new one. It is only 3,9 bytes something and small, just to make sure I am not using something too big, but still, the old avatar picture comes up instead but in a smaller size (same size as the new uploaded one). I just don't get it. :unsure::blink: help?!

(If you see the avatar of my husband fishing, well his shoes, then that is the old one I am trying to swap out for my dog)

Haha!! I tried refresh and now it works!!! Thank you! What a silly little thing, but still. ;)

It is a "she". Her name is Daisy, she is 3 this spring. German Sherpherd/Labrador Retriver mix. She hates getting her picture taken, so that is why she looks some what grumpy. hehe

She is super mellow and a sweetheart. I love her too much I am sure. She is my gluten free side kick these days.

Well, too much about my dog. :P;)

Thanks again! :D
