Maybe it is the type of file, like jpeg or wks. I use jpeg for all of my saved pics, and they transfer well to my avatar.

Hi, this is driving me nuts. I have a nice avatar, but I wanted to put in a picture of myself. I have it in other forums, and it works fine.

The picture I am trying to use is only 12 kb, and 80 x 97 pixels, well below the limit. Still, every time I try to update it, it will just resize my old avatar to the same size as the one I want, distorting it in the process. I even left the forum after deleting the old one, and went as far as getting off the Internet, before trying to upload it again. And despite the fact that I had DELETED the old picture, it would pop right up again! I am baffled and frustrated!

Please help me with this!

Thanks

Hi Ursula, I see the picture of you! I had to hit refresh at the top of my screen, you probably need to, too.

Thank you so much, such an easy fix, and yet so frustrating if you simply don't have a clue you need to do that! And I kept resizing it smaller and smaller, thinking that was the problem. Now I put a better one in, clicked refresh, and there it is. :rolleyes: I learn something new every day!

Ursula,I see you managed to change your avatar-Nice Pic!

I like being able to put a face to a name-although I'n not quite brave enough to do it myself!

I have removed my current avatar several times and tried to boot up a new avatar picture and for some reason it keeps adding this one (it just changes the dimensions of the picture). I do not understand why,I have changed my avatar several times, and I can't seem to get rid of this picture. What's going on?

Its a browser cache problem. Change your avater to what you want, and when its all done, hold SHIFT and hit the REFRESH button. You will then see the new avatar.

Just hit "refresh"--your new picture is there!

Ok, I will try... but I have left the site for about 2 hours came back on and it still is this picture!! How much refreshing do I need to do!

Leave the site wont do it... well eventually it would, but not in 2 days. :) The only way to force it its hold SHIFT and hit REFRESH (its F5 in IE if I recall right, or just mouse click the icon).

I was going to add a nice picture to distinguish my online appearance a bit from the dull, pictureless tedium of grey/no avatar, and it said:

"Sorry, the board administrator has not enabled your permissions for this part of the control panel."

Am I not special enough yet?

Did you do personal picture? 'cause that is not enabled for anyone, go to "My Controls" then on the side, click on "edit avatar settings" and then you should be able to upload your own picture. Make sure it is compressed and all.

No, when I was trying I got that once, but then was able to. For me it had to do with the size of the pic. The one I ended up posting was cut down. Don't know the solution, but you should be able to post a pic.

Edit: Molly that's exactly what happened and that's the solution! Then I also had to cut it down.

Hi Jenny--You can go to "My Controls" and then to "Edit Avatar Settings" on the left. Then just follow the instructions. I think you have to have a certain number of posts to put a quote under your avatar--500, maybe?

Every time I try to download a picture from my computer, I get the error message including something about the picture exceeding the limits for my group. What group am I in and why isn't it re-sizing my picture like it says it will.

I had the same problem, until I resized my picture myself to the required size (I think it was max. 50 kb, and 100 x 100 pixels, but I'm not 100% sure), and then it worked fine.
