    I don't know if I should speak for the TC but he did say the image is 100 X 140. I don't think the Superman one is it. But, I may be wrong.

    No, you'll probably get a response here.

    Schlupi: When he said he couldn't see an avatar at all, it made me wonder.

    Yeah, that is a good point...

    TC, did you try clearing your cookies and cashe? and then starting your internet browser up again?

    also, make sure your image is not hotlinked or anything like that. make sure it is a direct link to the image, from the webpage or your computer directory.

    I just remembered, I got that error when I tried to put up my original avatar (my Phoenix Wright one). All I did was save the file to my computer instead of using the web link and it fixed it.

    Don't know if that is useful info but it's the best I could do for now.

    I almost never upload my avatars here. I always use a direct link from photobucket.
    So I tried it. Didn't have any trouble.
    I'm not sure where the problem might lie.

    Yeah... TC, try uploading the picture to photobucket or imageshack, and use the direct link.

    if none of these solutions work I have no clue what to do.
