    Sounds like a job for our technical dept. Jocko? Are you about.

    I'm not too strong in some of this computer stuff but there's some real smart folks around here.

    If we can't figure it out I'll take it upstairs to the top, actually the elevator would be handier for me 84th floor an all, to JohnH, our fearless leader, he's wicked smart on this stuff.

    I just played around with changing my avatar using larger than allowed images and then going back to the one I sized correctly. Every time I changed the avatar and saved the change, the upload "failed" but the change was made... no problems!

    You have to select using an avatar and then browse for one on your computer or input a URL to one for use. I would advise saving a copy to your computer and then cropping the COPY -- NOT the original -- to the size/ratio that you want and then saving that to be your avatar. I also correctly size mine as well, but whatever you select will be re-sized to fit into 80 by 80 pixels, though cropping can help get the effect that you want beforehand.

    I use MS Paint to convert image types... GIFs to JPG, etc. Then I use the MS Fax and Photo viewer to edit the JPG... crop and re-size, etc. Again, I would advise making a copy to EDIT so that you won't lose the original image.

    Update: I now use Microsoft office 2010 to edit my photos... easy to crop and resize.

    I don't even see the option to allow me an avatar. When i click on "edit avatar" in my control panel. It comes up with with something that says "currevt avatar" and box is clicked that says "do not use an avatar" It won't let me unclick it though.

    I just tried to add it for you apparently without success, it said it was successful, Boss, I hope I didn't break anything.

    I had my neice come see if she could get it to work. She clicks on edit and the one you tried putting in for me was there. But, she clicked something and then it disapeared.
