What specific trouble are you running into? What method are you using? What is the size and format of your avatar? What sort of error message are you getting?

Scott,
I'm trying to add one of my photos from either my photobucket and my own computer and the error messages I'm getting are that the pictures from either place are like way too big for the pixels, and I'm now really getting fustrated by the new format!! Looks like I'll have to get used to this new format!! LOL!!

What I really wanted, was the same photo of what I had from the old forum.

Folks,
You need to use a picture that's been resized to 160x240 or less. You can even upload the picture rather than linking it from photo servers. But the picture needs to be reduced.

I resized my image using the installed MS paint box, located in your accessories. It was easy to do and upload.

I've added an Automatic Bat-Resizer into the avatar system for when you upload a an image but not if you are just linking an image. It's better to just upload them.

I'm glad you guys and gals are getting fixed up with avatars.

I'm loving the new display/layout, the avatars really pop in these threads.
