@Chrissi... (I think you deal with the web site)... Can't seem to update my avatar under my user settings... I can change other settings but for some reason I can't upload a different avatar... I am probably doing something wrong... It is a jpg file around 34k in size that I am trying to upload...


I have found a few conversations, tutorials and activities that may help with your question. Take a look at these links. I've sorted them by what I believe to be most relevant but that is not always the case as I'm still learning.

Also, consider reviewing the Learn section for informative lessons and activities. Check it out!


You need to refresh your browser with the ctrl & F5 method. You are viewing your cached avatar.

Duh.... *blush* (sheepishly) thanks


As usual... Thanks Rich


I even suffered from this lol.


As did I, which is why I know the answer Grin


Maybe in the future we'll fix it so that when uploading we bust the cache for the avatar. But for now you'll just have to remember to do it yourself Smile. Thanks Rich for catching this one.

By the way, this is the same way it's always behaved.


Hay Richard. You dont look like I thought you would. I kinda pictured a guy that looked like one of the "Big Bang" cast. *sick* Thank goodness you dont. You kinda look like Harrison Ford. *cool*


Well this solved my problem.

For posterity, if you 're using a mac the keys are Command + R

Richard, you threw me when I was replying to Dave's circuit post today and saw your actual photo. It's funny how we get used to avatars. Don't go changin' Rich & Dave!
