    I read the Help and the FAQs here...have selected a new avatar...but it won't showup on any of the Forums, but it does showup in my 'view profile' section.
    I can see the avatars of the other members, why can't I see mine...I was able to do so before. <img src=/S/bwaaah.gif border=0 alt=bwaaah width=123 height=15>

    <IMG SRC=http://users.adelphia.net/~nanalonnie/images/Gifs/All/duh2.gif> ...NOW it shows up... *sheesh*

    It takes a little bit of time for caches to get refreshed, as you found out. Nice userpic, and nice "duh2.gif", by the way, I like the way its toes wiggle!

    here's a larger size, if you like <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15> ...<IMG SRC=http://users.adelphia.net/~nanalonnie/images/Gifs/All/duh.gif> .
    I had a hard time deciding what to change my userpic from the old one to a new one...this one is called 'teamwork'.

    I've seen the term avatar used in other forums, but it's always been userpic in this one.

    I find it amusing how the internet can hijack words which mean something totally different.

    From www.hyperdictionary.com
    <hr>Definition:

    1. [n] the manifestation of a Hindu deity (especially Vishnu) in human or superhuman or animal form; "the Buddha is considered an avatar of the god Vishnu"
    2. [n] a new personification of a familiar idea; "the embodiment of hope"; "the incarnation of evil"; "the very avatar of cunning" <hr>

    "Icon" originally had a religious significance, and was hijacked by, um, well whoever really came up with the GUI. I suppose we all still worship Icons, but now they are the ones on the monitor that we pray to. I definitely worship the Undo Icon! <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    No, you can't get away with it!! The phrase is <font color=blue><big>therein lies...</big></font color=blue>
