Still nekkid.

The avatar photo is on my profile page, but the picture hasn't shown up on the boards.

Someone told me to clean my cache. I'm not sure what a cache is, but I think I did that. Still nekkid.


Well this is one I can speak from experience Roberta. First I couldn't get my avatar to load. I was told to clean my cache---if you're using Explorer, go to tools - Internet Resources - delete temporary files (not cookies). Did that and finally my new avatar showed up in my profile--it did take awhile--but I still saw the old one on screen. Was advised to log off and clean my cache again and log back in. And that did the trick for me.


Foxfyre, Thanks for the advice. I did everything you suggested. Still nothing. Big sigh.

@jespah,
No, jes. I see the same doohickey that was there from the start.

How is that possible? You see it, and I don't.

@Roberta,
You REALLY have to clear your cache!


If you haven't downloaded any other browser, I assume you are using Internet Explorer.

I cleared my Internet Explorer cache last night. I cleared my MSN cache twice. Either I think I'm clearing caches that aren't caches, or something is weird.

I cleared what's referred to as temporary Internet files.

Rolling Eyes I'm hopeless. Sigh.

Mebbe log out, close your browser, then re-open and log back in?

@Roberta,
You know....this is the same with my work browser.

Borat Sister has an avatar...but dlowan does not...and I have also cleared my cache and all that at work.

'Tis odd.


Well, at least WE can all see your cheetah.


But....did you LOG OUT.

At the right hand top of the page it says "Log out".

As long as you recall your password, click on that, close your browser.

When you come back to A2k you will have to log in again.

After that, if that doesn't work, I got bupkis to suggest.

Hard to tell because of the small size, but it looks like a person with a fan or something beside them.

@caribou,
on the forum pages it looks like someone sitting by a fan
on your profile pic it looks more like the reflection of someone dropping a rock into water

they're the same pic - but the detail makes them look sooooo different!

@caribou,
Nevermind, found it. cleared. logged out and in.
Now I see it.

Hmmmm, think I liked my other one better...

Thank you all

boida, If you have what I have...
Windows xp. Start button, control panel, internet opinions, on the first tab under General, Browsing history, Delete, delete all (at the bottom). click yes, if it asks if you really want to do it..
Log out of a2k, log in...

Looks like a sewing machine to me.

WE NEED BIGGER AVATARS!
