    Avatar help

    Well Mark was kind enough to resize a photo for me but I'll damned, I still can't get it to work. Tried downloading from my computer (1st box in avatar section). Tried 2nd and 3rd box from a remote site where I also have the picture. Nothing but red x comes up. Am I stupid or what?????? Any kind words of assistance to this computer idiot would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Dan & Mike:

    I am not so sure that you guys are doing anything wrong. Something screwy is going on IMHO. I tried to use a Dancing Men Avatar located at http://www.avatarity.com/avatars/3/32/3217.gif by using any of the three options for inclusion. The only one that would work was linking to it and that lasted less than a day and a big red "x" began showing instead. I could not bring the thing back online a second time. Thus the sigh character. If you get it figured out, let us all know.

    Thanks,

    Jeff R. :?

    Jeff



    I guess the site of the avatar you were using didn't like people linking direct to their image. Clicking on that link gives a forbidden message.



    Brian has now sorted it to enable upload of your avatar from your own machine so that the image is then loaded from the koi bito domain space.



    If you have the image try it again, it should work now.

    thanks on the avatar work

    Thank you so much for whatever you did it makes it very easy to set a personal image quite a job you have done with the new board. how bout a classified section? you know members with items for sale trade? wouldn't even mind if this section has adds - always looking for the next supplier of new and hot items as well of course as more fish. thanks again and truly a great job, Mike
