    There is a size requirement on avatars. Maybe your avatar is too large. If not, maybe you are not giving it time to load. When you click on "upload avatar", wait until it is completely uploaded before proceeding.

    If this doesn't work, post back with a step by step of what you tried.

    Russell has that dead on Freak. You will need to resize your image so it comes through.

    Those guys from Missoura are good.

    It's a good link, but the size limit information in it only applies to photo attachments in posts. The size limit for avatars is 200x200 pixels. For full avatar requirements and other board information, I suggest you check the FAQ, located under the Quick Links menu in your toolbar. Welcome to the BOC.

    Brad, someone might as well tell ya now. According to the FAQ, your avatar needs to be a recognizable image of yourself. That's not YOU is it? :wink:
