    I've been trying to upload my avatar from the old BYC,and it keeps saying it's too big. [​IMG] How on earth can I get an avatar? Can you use one off photobucket? I only see an "upload" feature,do you upload it from photobucket??

    I have it on photobucket already. I can't figure out how to get it on THIS board.... in "personality" there is "upload avatar" and browse.... ??? I see nowhere to paste a photobucket URL.

    You need to download the avatar to your desktop. Then left click your down loaded file and check the "file size on disk". That size must be under 15kb. If so, then from the byc page, upload from your desktop.

    YAY!! Ok I had to reset the avatar size BEFORE I uploaded it to photobucket,as it wouldn't let me resize it once it was already uploaded [​IMG]!! Then I saved it to my PC & uploaded it. Thanks guys! [​IMG]
