This such a minor, unimportant thing, but.....

My little cheerleader avatar has disappeared (and I can't see avatars on many other member's posts anymore, either.) I can't get avatars to load - I keep getting the message that they must be jpegs, gifs or ....something else. And, the ones I choose supposedly ARE those. So, if anyone reads this who has a clue about that sort of thing, please share your wisdom.

Here is an example the url of that little cheerleader. I know I had to 'edit' it to get it to work before, but I can't recall what I did...foggy brain that I am:

As you can see, it works in the body of the post, but not in the profile. What the heck!!!!

Yep, update your profile for you avatar...

Yup - yours worked. I tried that...nada, no go, zilch. Could be my computer, I suppose, but the avatars work in the body of the post, so that's not likely. I try all kinds of 'smiley' sites, but nothing seems to work in my profile. If admin sees this (would he?) maybe he would have some idea.

THis is such a silly, little thing....sorry to take up space with it! :oops:

Hey, you didn't mention on how to get it into the body..keeping it secret..

DUH :( Not my area of expertise. Hopefully, Conrad will see your question and have an answer for you soon. I suspect that he will be around often to make sure that everything is running smoothly!

Sowwy....wish I could help
Peace and Blessings

Thanks anyway, Saysusie...it's a tiny problem in a sea of big issues! I'll hold my breath 'til Beloved Admin takes a gander at the posts - Maybe I'll direct one to him, just in case....

Oluwa, no secrets between us! You just copy the url and paste it wherever you want in the body of the post. Should work. But then, those things should work in the profile, too. :roll:

Whew...that's a lot of letters, numbers and symbols! But, nope....no avatar. Shoot....

I'll PM you with the website I found those little smiley's on - maybe those are different.

Hey Oluwa,

Can you pm me with the website? I am sooo out of touch with avatars.

I like the whole gang pix. Cool!

Your avatars all are a blank tile with a red x in it on my computer. I don't know if that helps at all, this is beyond my technical abilities. I'm sure Conrad will get it sorted out.

Hmmm Rob...

I'm seeing the avitars, wonder why you're not. I don't see everybody's though.

But I do see all the ones here.

Spt Rob, remember it's mother's day weekend hint hint. Hope you're out shopping for your mom :D

Some avatars were lost with the outage. Sorry about that.

I finally found a site that had smileys and other "cutsie" things coded as URLs, which will work in the profiles. Not all of the sites have them coded that way and I'm not computer literate enough to edit the code. So...my cheerleader is back...she's slightly different, but cute, no?

Hey Sits,

Could you email me the site that you talked about awhile back that shrinks pix for an avatar? I forgot where it is. I am hopeless in a computer usually. :oops:

Thanks,

Karen

No worries, Conrad. Looks like everyone is finding a way to deal with it!
