After this update I'm not able to see my avatar on any posts if going back.  I've tried to reload it but it seems to keep disappearing.  Is anyone else having this problem?

    Losing my avatar

    "Losing my Avatar," isn't that a song by REM?  But seriously, I think the size of the file you upload may cause the site to reject it.  Perhaps if you have a program where you can resize the photo (CSN puts it down to something like 150x150 pixels) you may have better luck with the upload.  I previously used the 150 pixel standard, but the quality of the photo degraded so much, I have been using a 3x5 inch size which CSN then automatically resizes.  It seems to work a bit better.

    Oh, and after you upload the photo, do not forget to scroll to the bottom of the edit page and click the "submit" button.

    Still won't work

    I'm not sure how to resize on my Samsung phone.  It says that it will automatically resize but every time it says the file exceeds 2 MB.  I'm not a tech geek and don't know how to change it - uggg.

    Okay google. . .

    I hate to admit I use it, but often I find the answers to my questions by asking google, for example, "how do you reduce photo size on a Samsung XYZ phone?"  Surpisingly, the answers are often useful.

    Google

    Just got a google mini and yesterday was so frustrated with it was ready to take it back.  Stepped back today and just tried to get it to cooperate and I'm getting somewhere.  Yes Google is very helpful in a lot of ways, but newbies please do not look up stats on Google as a lot of it is old and inaccurate.

    Agree

    Yup definitely agree.  I'm just not good with figuring out new computer stuff.  Just don't like not having a picture.

    Maybe....

    you could send your picture via email, to someone on the forum that you trust, who knows how to re-size it for the forum.

    Thanks Buddy for offering to help but after 3 hours of trying finally got it.  My phone wouldn't resize it but after getting it to my laptop it worked.  Ugg I'm not good at this stuff.  Thanks to all for your suggestions too.

    You're welcome

    You are welcome.  It is hard to learn the new technologies, but once you do, you can keep adding skills.  I only learn things when I need them.   Nice to see you got it to work.
