    The last three times I've tried to upload stuff (going into Uploads, choosing a file, resizing) it takes FOREVER (like more than an hour) and I just give up cause the rest of my family needs to use a computer. So either I just need to buy myself a laptop, or I'm not doing something right... [​IMG]

    Update: ok so NOW things upload, so I tried to upload my new avatar pic. it's the right size and everything, but when I go change avatar>choose file>file name>choose>upload, it redirects me back to my "personality" page and i still have my old avatar! The "redirecting" page that I see for a few seconds says "successful upload", but I go to "my uploads" and it's not there...

    You have to force-refresh your page to show your avatar.

    Hit CNTRL and F5 at the same time a couple times, then sign out if it's still not there, then it'll be there!

    Try clicking "Submit" after uploading your avatar to your personality page. After clicking submit, it should appear. If not, refresh the page or restart your BYC session.

    ya I am having the same issue, and NOTHING seems to work! Just continues to say the file is too large even though I made it way smaller than I use to have to!

    Try creating an avatar using www.shrinkpictures.com. Make sure to change the size to 100. It will let you choose from 3 formats, then download it to your computer. Open up BYC, go to your Profile, then Personality, and upload the avatar from your computer. It is not necessary to upload it to the Uploads section of BYC.

    99.5% of the time, saving a 100 x 100 pixel image as a gif makes it small enough to be uploaded.
