Anyone who has updated your my preferences page, there is no blank avatar to click on, similar to what Rachel first said earlier. There IS a line for "Avatar" but clicking around that area does not give me a "change" option. Help please from those who have been successful. I am using IE, maybe that is the problem....

you have to pick the 'my profile' at the blue menu bar at the top of the page.

Skinny, thanks, that got me into the correct area, but now I am having this issue....the avatar has to be in .jpg, and mine is .jpeg so how would I make a correct copy in the necessary format?

RNDDUDE, I had the same problem. I saved a copy of the .jpeg file to my desktop, and renamed it with a .jpg suffix. They both work the same as far as opening the picture, but for some reason, the software here does not recognize the .jpeg suffix.

Hope that helps.

Rachel, thank you!

was just going through the velonation community section.
Velonews refugees are 17 pages deep. 120 members have made the jump so far. Almost all names that I recognize as 'regular' posters from over there too.

So much for velonews being down to only a 'handful' of regular posters.

TV and RNDDUDE, I'll bet the software is old and only recognized the first 3 letters of the file type. It sees .jpe and says "I never saw that before!"

And CERV, we all know that we are, for the vast majority of us, highly irregular people. (For one, most of us own multi thousand $$ bicycles. Regular folk don't.) So, by that definition, the only regular posters at Velonews are those Chinese spammers. (I'm guessing band member, flicker and the other hangers on are as irregular as we are with regard to bicycles.)

@vtguy - I'll just keep it as a manual add so it stays that way - 6:18 and I'm about to pick up my Louis Vuitton shipment from China...once I see what's in there, I'll post the contents to see who's interested...

keeping it manual -- good idea steve. thanks again for providing sanctuary for us refugees; much nicer forum software. just a thought... a read-only FAQ section so folks understand the sign-up process (e.g. approval latency due to spam protection manual method etc.), rules of the road, etc. BTW, i think many of us encountered a technical error message upon signup that didn't really affect the signup but made us question whether our registration took or not. anyway, i know we've swamped you, so thanks again for being such a gracious host.

Jimmybagadonuts is in the house as well.....formally Froggy from Velonews. Good to see you all here.
