    OK, so maybe I'm stupid. I cannot get my avatar back up. Not from the URL or my pictures. Any input appreciated.

    Whats up Bern ! Where are you trying to paste the url from. I have mine stored on the photo page and didnt seem to have any probs.Make sure you check the have custom avatar button then paste the url of your photo it should work after that.

    88x95 pixels on #2

    Here it is.

    I have had the custom mode on, opened a new window, found pic, hit properties, highlghted the properties, had my cursor on properties and clicked on copy, hit OK to close it, gone to the URL address on avatar, clicked on paste, and I get "not a .jpg" etc, etc. It is not too large, just the same ol' grizzly bear I had before, on the good old CK5. I tried it from "my pictures", same problem.

    And my flags don't fly in my signature....is that over and not an option now?

    Thanks, Bern

    I have increased the size of avatars from 80x80 to 100x100 so the 2nd pic will work but the first one is a little to wide yet.
    I have pics in the signature turned off for the moment so that is why you could not get that to work.

    Both of these should be small enough now. Save them to your desktop and use the upload button from there.
