Any ideas?
I am going to “Your Control Panel”,
I am going to “Edit Avatar”,
I even tried with deleting my old one, logging out, logging in, uploading the new one.
Nothing doing, I am always getting my old avatar back.

Did you try removing Avatar and then logging out, closing your browser and clearing the cache, before logging back in and uplaoding a new avatar ?

Another thing to try, a couple of people were having problems getting a new Banner to show.  They found out that the way to do it was actually to load the banner in a different format, so if the old one was a jpg, try using a gif or a png.  Just a thought.

I had no problems with changing my banner, but you do need to remove the old one first. I think it is when you try to upload a new one without taking out the old one first that makes things go wrong, but that is just my opinion.

The Clearing cache dance didn’t work ... I now renamed my new avatar from jpg to gif and this ... well, I will see when I submitted this message.

Edited to add: the renaming (not even reformatting, LOL) worked!
Thank you!

Glad it worked, and I agree, like the new Avatar.

Wow… thanks! I’ve been having avatar change problems, too! Since I changed it to gif format, I could change it! Thanks, chohole!

Quick tip for Updating Avatars. Your Daz3D cookie can and will (sometimes) prevent the user from seeing the update.
