Does anyone know how to remove an old avatar and replace it with a new one? I tried removing the old one and replacing it with a new one but the old one was still there and the new one was nowhere in site. question

I just PMed you about this, HG ...

Click on “Your Control Panel” above, and then “Edit Avatar” on the left. You can delete the one you have now and upload another if that’s what you want to do. I imagine that uploading a new one will also automatically delete the old one.

I did all of that but it did not work. I’ll try it one more time.

Well the old one is still there and for some unknown reason I can not get rid of the old one or download the new one.

You sure that’s 5.5 KB and not 55 KB? I think you should probably try to use a smaller image and see what happens.

Thank you for checking in, Doug. It does say, size: 5.56. I went ahead and tried a much smaller pic that is only 54 x 73 at 2.03, but got the same message. I also cleared my temporary internet files, History, and logged out, then restarted to try a fresh go at it, but no dice. I only mention this because it may not be on my end, but I’ll give it another go in a little while. Thanks again.

Make sure you select the image on your computer when it gives you the popup screen. You have to pick out the image and then click “upload” (or something like that).

wonder if someone else may be encountering this problem, and if someone could be willing to delete their avatar then attempt to upload again to see if this really is on my end.

well, I just tried and got an error too, so it would seem that it’s NOT ‘just you’ !  (and the avatar was most definitely smaller than the max size)

Since I’ve never been interested in having an avatar, I can’t help.  Doug is away for the weekend, but I’m sure he can assist you when he returns.

I’ll send a message to our resident expert and see if he can find what might be going wrong ...

Hmm, i just tried it and it seemed ‘successful’ (it said ‘avatar uploaded’ or words to that effect), but my avatar didn’t change.

EDIT:  apparently i just didn’t wait long enough:) (it took a good 5-10min to take effect)
