Hi tancow.

Sent you a pm. Did U receive it?

I figured out how to post a pic in signature, but not a PIC in avatar, like you did. How did you do it? I've spent bout 2 hours, am ready to give up.

An avitar pic can only be 50x50 pixals ... and can't be bigger than 7kb. Any good graphics program should be able to tell you how large your pic is - and allow you to scale it to the proper size.

As you've already noticed, since you have changed your avitars, you have to delete the current one before you can load a new one.

Michael, as you said size does matter. It is really the only requirement.
You can actually load another Avitar without deleting the original. The original will be replaced automatically. The delete box is so you can delete and stop the present Avitar from displaying.

Have a look at your coding for the barbed wire. Note carefully you have gif [/img] it should be gif[/]. That is, NO space before the[/]. Maybe when you copied the URL you highlighted some space at the end of the address.

My head hurts.

I was able to delete the only sample avatar I tried posting. Problem is, pics I've saved are either bits or jpeg, not gifs. Went to the gif site a kind member here posted...but, I can't post an avatar. I have MS paint, & tried shrinking it down to 50 50 pixels, doesn't show up. Guess, only remedy for now is posting a smiley. I would have liked to post a pic avatar. Don't know how people post pics of themselves. Guess I'll just remain the woman of mystery.

P.S. Don't have a scanner, so can't do what Mike recommended awhile back. Do appreciate your responses Michael & Wayne. But right now...I give up.
