OK, don' know why but I seem t remember someone in the past having similar problems and they were related to Google Chrome, I THINK.

But, my issue is whe I changed my Avatar it never appeared in any of the posts I make. It appears on my profile ok, but nowhere else.

I would appreciate any solutions/sugestions/help.

Thanks in advance.

But then if it were Chrome would it not let you upload it at all, I don't know. I had one that did that, just got another pic. Try a differnet pic, if it works it is not Chrome then, something to do with the address of the pic maybe.

What I said...:)

Save the avi pic to your computer HD. Set the size appropriately small (e.g. my avi pic is ~150 square & ~66 Kb). Upload from HD. Bada bing.

I prefer using Mozilla Firefox when on FN. I definitely have less spinny issues compared to when I used IE.

Thanks guys. I'm at home today and don't have any pics on my laptop, but I'll try some of the suggestions.

On my work PC IE is what I gotta use (all programs must be installed by IT, everyone has to use certain programs like IE and Lotus Notes for mail), but I use Firefox at home and you're right, it works way mo-betta for FN (No dbl posts, less other kludgy behavior.

Mainly tho it's way faster. With my low bandwidth wireless router, supporting multiple PC's/game systems/Netflix my laptop was slow. Not just a little either. Before FF it was 'hit-a-keystroke-and-wait' type slow. My daughter told me about Firefox. Being lazy, stubborn, and skeptical I kept bitching instead of installing. So she did it while I wasn't looking and demonstrated; all so she could get a "you were right/I was wrong" satisfaction from her stubborn Dad.

Try going with an Avi that shows ND stomping the Trojan helmet into the turf for all eternity. Works for me every time. ;)

May not like the name it has. Could be a copyright. Try renaming or re-saving it as a .bmp if its a .gif or vice versa.

Find some kid who can help you.

Just go get Hammered! and forget the whole thing.

The latter would be my choice.
