Changing avatar - 09/30/09 03:41 PM

I was trying to change my avatar picture, but kept getting a message that I wasn't doing it properly. First, "Improper picture type"--it's a plain old jpeg (and there's no impropriety in it, believe me!). Then when I try again, it says, "It does not appear that this was submitted from the proper form." What's am I doing wrong?

Drop the "e" out of jpeg? "at86.jpg" should work.

The extension is .jpg. I just tried a .png, and no joy there either.

What's the name of the pic? It's from the same place as your avatar I assume.

Yep, from the homepage.mac.com page. The image is bills.jpg or bills.png. This is what it looks like.



edit: I've grown balder over the few months I was gone. wink

So, you're saying that linking to homepage.mac.com/youraccountname/.Pictures/filename.jpg doesn't work? Is it 75x85 pixels or what ever it's supposed to be?

Perhaps William would rather speak towards his audience than away?

You can take this address. It will be there until 2022.

I used your link, poly, and got the same message. Guess I'm forever young.

Your computer is forever screwed more like it. You pasted in "http://155.52.95.150/666/billy.jpg" into the location of your avatar and then clicked "Submit" down on the bottom and it did not stick?

Once you click submit the new avatar should be showing right there. Now that would be weird.

You forgot to click "submit" now didn't you? ;-O

Got it changed for you, but it did act weird. I entered the url but it didn't take at first, it hung for a while, then it showed the right link, but a question mark, a couple of minutes later the pic showed up.

Probably had to blow the dust off of your account. grin
