    I don't know why it's not displaying correctly. Could it be something to do with the image's size, or the 2 hour time delay? Help would be appreciated.

    Here is the image. Thanks! :apple:

    That'd be what's wrong then. I assumed that the image would be automatically resized down, as with what other forums do (including another forum that uses the same software as this one). I guess I'll try resizing it.

    More importantly from that page:

    It will resize automatically. It just takes up to a couple of hours to begin appearing next to your posts.

    You can check your profile page to see that it has uploaded correctly. So now just sit tight. :)

    Because the pics used on profile pages and those on forum pages are frequently hosted on different servers due to load issues. The two servers only sync up every few hours.

    Where can you pick one? What do you mean?

    You make it yourself.... it's you own creation.

    You can have whatever you want just as long as it's family friendly and under the size limit.

    Does it also take 2 hours for the option to come up to upload an avatar? Just hit my 500+ post half an hour or so ago and I still can't see an option on the edit avatar page. See attached for reference.

    Thanks!

    Just go to bed and when you wake it'll be good to go. Seriously, why to people get so uppity about an avatar. I block them personally.

    You've waited almost two years to qualify for an avatar.... a few more hours or even a day isn't going to kill you.

    Wasn't concerned about how long the wait is. The question was about whether there is supposed to be wait even after achieving the title. Thanks

    Duff-Man says...okay, and if you'd searched and read the faq on this q that has been asked/answered countless times then you'd know the answer already...try it sometime - it's faster than waiting for snarky replies....oh yeah!

    Everytime I upload an avatar it just shows a link to it under my name..."SophiaLee's Avatar", but the avatar doesn't show up.

    And I wait longer than 2 hours, days even and it still doesn't show up.

    I just deleted it, but can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? It's very annoying.

    It may partly be stored in cache and hasn't updated yet. Give it some time and also clear your browser cache to see if that helps. Also ask if anyone else can see it to help determine if the issue resides in the site or your browser.
