Question Still cant up load Photo

Once again I have tried to up load a shot of a Locomotive taken at a museum site In New Zealand, I have followed the instructions to the tee, and 3 times I have had a rejection, very disappointing. But I go into the Forum site and make a comment to a RR, and what do I see, the shot that I wanted to upload to the site is now my AVATAR. I am confused as to what's the norm.

It's a nice Avatar, all you have to do is go to members, add photo's, to get the right page and there is a choose file oval to click on. Getting the Avatar on was the hard part!

Thanks Richard, I will have an other go and see how we get on, up to this point it seems that I'm lucky to have that small shot on the system.
John.

I don't understand this. You write as though the avatar appeared without you knowing it would. You made the shot your avatar, you typed stuff and clicked on something at some point. And what does "made a comment to a RR" mean? Did you add a comment to an RP shot or did you make a post to an RP forum or what? Neither one of those actions makes an avatar appear.

Like J I am also confused.

Did you try to load your picture in the right spot? Go to the home page. Where it says "Photos" near the top there is a drop down box and you will see "Add Photos." Did you use this? Elite members load under the Members section.

Also, are you sizing your picture correctly?

All members can load under either "Add Photos" in the Members section or from the drop down choice under "Photos" on the home page.

Maybe he's trying to attach the shot to post in the forums?
