    Ok, I'm on Mozilla. I had to use IE for creating my BYC page for copy/paste to work. Decided to change my Avatar too.

    Changed the avatar on Mozilla... still shows a chicken with a mum flower. But blurred. I deleted it, tried again. Still a chicken. How when I deleted it?

    Opened IE to look. Shows a duck.

    What?

    Logged out of BYC, closed Mozilla. Reopened, signed in... still a blurry chicken!

    Ok.

    Do you see a duck or a chicken as my avatar?

    Quote:This has happened to me several times. I don't know what the problem is and apparently it makes no sense BUT I'm gonna make a bet that after midnight tonight you will be able to see your correct avatar.

    Do a forced refresh by pressing F5 on your very top row of keys.

    Your browsers will often keep a copy of images called a "cache" so you don't have to keep loading it every time. Speeds up browsing. You can clear your cache: http://kb.iu.edu/data/ahic.html

    Or
    use CTRL + F5 to force refresh the page with your avatar.
