Did you check the file size? It must be max. 200 KB And.. I think it's wrong format..

Down in the bayou, Bubba called an attorney and asked, "Is it true they're suin' the cigarette companies for causing people to get cancer?
"Sure is Bubba. But why you asking?"
"Cause what I want to know is, I was thinking, can I sue Budweiser for all them ugly women I've slept with?"

1. Did you click on update avatar? I ask this since the message you received is:
no avatar
No Avatar selected

2. Is it of the file types - .gif .jpeg. .jpg. .swf .png

These are they only file types allowed.

I have tried all of your links, and they come up with the error saying that remote linking is not allowed with this service. I would find another image hosting site to do it. I use www.photobucket.com It is free and is used by others of this site.

Ok results of new links are:

First one-screen shot of your control panel here at BC.

second one-no image.

third one-page cannot be found

fourth one-screen shot of avatar properties


Here is a guess on why it does not work. In the last post of the avatar properties, it shows that it is a flash movie, ran by macromedia. For a computer to read it, they need the Macromedia plug-in to be installed. Some may have it, and some may not. I do not believe that this is something that this server can do. Is there a way that you can convert the file into a GIF file?

Image one of four is 1024 X 768 pixel full desktop image of My Control Panel, specifically Avatar settings
Image two of four is "The image “http://yanowhiz.netrulon.com/wtf2.png” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors."
Image three of four is "The requested URL /wtf3.png was not found on this server."

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Apache/1.3.33 Server at www.yanowhiz.netrulon.com Port 80

Image four of four is Avatar Properties indicating a mAcromedia flash play object located on your desktop 10.8KB

Inconclusive data for me to give an answer.

1. Shows that no avatar selected.
2. Shows no avatar selected.
3. Message: You are not allowed to upload that type of file as an avatar or personal photo.
4. The file is a Macromedia Flash File. Refer to the quote below by JE.

You may just have to find another image.
