    As a newbie, I tried to add my avatar when setting up my profile, but I could only add the link at the bottom of my note. The actual avatar option was dimmed. I thought it might be because the account hadn't been confirmed yet, but after doing so, the avatar option still wasn't available. What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks!

    Click on your link until your picture comes up. Right click on it and save it to where you will be able to find it.

    Then go to YOUR profile and click on View/Edit Complete Profile.

    Go to Avatar and click on Edit.. Click on Browse and go back to where you saved your Avatar and click it, then Open. Then click on Update Avatar. It should be your new Avatar after that.

    For some reason, I keep getting an Internet Explorer script error when I try to update the avatar so can't get it to work. Oh, well, that's life! Thanks for trying to help!

    Weird...
    I get those darned Internet Explorer Script errors periodically so must be a flaw in my software. I do belong to a local on-line community forum and my avatar displays fine there so don't know why this situation is different? I updated to Internet Explorer 7.0 so the only other thing I can think of is to do a clean install of the operating system and reinstall all my software. That has zero appeal so guess I'll live without the avatar displaying, but thanks again for your help.

    I just tried to add one. Let's see if it worked.

    Weird! only half there. I had to browse, update and then select (several times) before it said it updated it.

    Tried a different one and it worked.

    Think I figured it out. It was the size, too big. When I resized it, it worked fine.

    Thanks, Sam. It's a kaleidoscope of a photo of a winter storm last winter.

    I know this is a little late in responding to this subject. Last Wednesday, lightning fried my computer's modem and motherboard and I just got it back today from the shop. Boy, did I miss it. And I missed this Board!! Anyway, where do you all find these cute Avatars? I'd like to add one. (P.S. It also fried my TiVo) I've been going through electronic withdrawal. Sue
