*growls underbreath*

WHAT am I doing WRONG! Here is what I am doing step-by-step...

1. Save "tantric" icon to hard drive (from Jen's "icons" post in "Random Noise")

2. Go to "Edit Profile"

3. Click "Remove..." for "tommygoofballicon"

4. Click "Update Profile"

5. Re-enter "Edit Profile"

6. Click "Browse"

7. Click "tantric"

8. Click "Update Profile"

Even after all of this and signing out and back in, my avatar will NOT change. It will remove, but it remains the same damn picture as the previous...

I'VE HAD THAT MORE TIMES THAN, than, yea.

Is it were it uploads the previous icon instead of the current? What I've done is delete the previous icon.

Yeah, that's what is going on. I removed the previous before I applied the current. I can't delete the previous from my computer...this is a different computer.

I don't have MSN. I have AOL, AIM and Yahoo. Sorry babe.

I've had that problem a couple of times, too. have you tried to reload or refresh your profile screen? That usually works for me.

I'm thinking you'd have to use that "replace current photo" option instead of removing it. You know, where it's got "keep, replace, remove"? try that.

and it should work even though you removed the "tommy..." avatar already.

Try it and see... but if you blow up the forum, I had nothing to do with it.

Here's the process:

1) Click 'Edit Your Profile'
2) Click the 'Browse' button and look for the file you want to use as your avatar. The file has to be GIF/JPG/PNG.
3) Move the radio button to 'Replace Current Photo'
4) Hit 'Update Your Profile'

If your avatar doesn't change, you're not following one of the steps above correctly. If your avatar doesn't change and you're confident that you're following the steps correctly, then you're wrong.

It works. I don't know what to tell you. When I use the exact image you request, it works for me. I follow the steps listed above and have yet to encounter a single problem. I don't know what you're doing wrong. Sorry.

If you want, e-mail me the image, I'll log in as you, and try setting it as your avatar.

Ok, I sent it. Thank-You. I'll sign out. I won't be back, going home. Thanks again. And I again apologize for my outburst.

By the way, are you using Internet Explorer? I don't know if that would make a difference, but the only browser I've ever tested this in is Internet Explorer. Are you redirected to the forum page afterwards? Is there any indication that there was some sort of error?

I guess, but I'd prefer it if you could give me an idea of what you might be doing that's keeping the avatar from working.

The top post is a problem creating an avatar at all. What's the specific problem you're having? If you upload a large file, I do resize it, and maybe that's having some minor hit in clarity.

Yeah, I'm using IE. I see that you've got it working for me, though. Thanks, A-Man!

I think the key to changing your avatar is to HAVE PATIENCE! I know it's frustrating, but the computer needs a bit of time to update it and change it. Just keep working at it, and it will replace itself.

I've done everything with my avatar to change it, this happenes every time! I click replace and it goes into the size of the pic I want but it's still the same pic? See?! I'm fat! Grrr, this has happened for the last 10 times since I came here. I usually have to delete the old pic. for the new one to work.


GAH!
Edit: I removed the pic and tried a new one and I got nothing period.

Another edit: I try alot of pics and it comes back to the old fat one, I know I'm doing everything right because I totally removed the picture first THEN tried another.

last edit: I did what I usually do when I change my avatar and delete my old pic and then my new one usually comes in, you like loup?
