    aahh! this is REALLY frustrating! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I want to change my avatar, so I went to this website to change the size: www.shrinkpictures.com I uploaded my picture, resized it, right clicked and saved it, and then I went to upload it here. When I found the one that I had saved, I uploaded it and it said that my new avatra had been uploaded. But when it redirected me, I had the same avatar as before!??!!! [​IMG] I kept trying over and over again, but nothing worked!?? [​IMG]

    Can't I just simply upload my avatar already????!! [​IMG] [​IMG]


    Please help! [​IMG]
    Thanks! [​IMG]

    I just changed mine so lets see if it worked. Did you try signing off of BYC and then signing back in? What is your avatar? I remember someone else having a problem with this but everyone could see the new avatar but the OP.

    http://www.shrinkpictures.com/create-avatar/

    Go there and change the size to 100 instead of 200 - works like 1 2 3

    Thanks! I just tried it on another picture...but again, it said that it uploaded successfully but it hasn't changed. [​IMG] [​IMG] Like right now I have an avatar with flowers, and I just tried the website you gave me, and I saved the resized image, but when I uploaded it, it said that it was uploaded successful, but I still have the flower avatar?

    AH! Now it changed again! It like doesn't change until after a while and THEN out of no where the new avatar pops up! [​IMG] I guess it just loads a bit and then changes...

    Thanks!

    Once you load it try clicking on submit again at the bottom! That may do it.
