Re: Avatar problems

Sometimes happens to me with image attachments. Usually is a non-standard http// address, maybe "blogspot" or similar; or wrong file address.
I don't think there's a(n easy) way round it, other than select another pic.

Then use the page to upload it. Images in that page usually can be used.

An avatar is only an image. Get over it, there are worse things in the world don't get offended by a little picture in the corner of the screen. If they offend you turn them off.

Re: Avatar problems

On a different note, (no offence to anyone)
Can I put certain avatars off? or will it mean all the avatars being turned off.
Certain people I recognize people on the forum based on their avatars, like begga,nils, DB Abfab,music chick and many others I dont want to simply switch off their avatars.

So can I can filter out certain avatars?
Is there a way, I can achieve this?

Thanks

I suggest you put the image you attached up as your avatar and get on with life.

Re: Avatar problems

Take it easy on her ginger boy.

I have to agree that all animated avatars annoy the sh!t out of me. I for one would be happy to switch off all animated avatars but keep the still images.

P.s. J.L-P : I'll rep you if you switch back to the booby avatar

I think exercises such as squats and lunges could help, but really it depends on your physiology.
