    Steve,

    Am I losing my mind or were you temporarily allowing the use of avatars (or pictures at least) on posts?

    Its the little picture next to the username that some boards have. An avatar is supposed to represent or exemplify the user. Mine should probably be one of the three stooges, but not Shemp. ;-)

    Do we have to do anything special to display them, because I don't seen anyones, including my red x'd box! Maybe it was on my home computer that I saw them. Darn, I want my pictures back.

    We can't see it, because it's still on your local hard drive, instead of on a web site. The URL points back to Drive C. Your picture isn't on everyone elses drive C. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif

    This is what shows up as the properties for your pic:

    "file:///C:/My%20Documents/My%20Pictures/bart.gif"

    We just see the red X.

    sweet. i didn't know the avatar option was back on. Had mine turned off. They're on now, and what a new dimension the website has. Thanks for bringing up the option!
