    All day, and I mean all day, I have been trying to change my Avator. I did get my old one off but now I can't get the new one on.

    I went to the Forum Q & A. I did everything I was told, I can't get it. I went to Photobucket, I tryed shrinking it. It's not working. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    edited to add,


    I get to here, Enter an avatar file to upload and when I click on the upload it doesn't nothing.

    It may be an issue with your computer or web browser. Can you post pictures in a thread?

    If you post it here, I will add your avatar for you. (PM me when you have posted the picture here).
