    I upload my profile and avatar images at least once a day, only to have them magically missing by the time I log on in the morning. Is this a common occurrence or do I have to sacrifice a goat to make sure the images stay?

    Yeah, they don't work very well. I didn't mean to change my Avatar, I tried to change my profile picture and I ended up with a really tiny ceiling cat. I got tired of fucking with it so I stopped. Good luck. Just keep trying.

    If it's any consolation, I'm seeing an avatar under your name for the first time, Trippysmurf. A blue and white robot, or something.

    I also see the robot as your avatar trippy. The avatar system is quite terrible though. Whenever I try to upload a new avatar it usually takes about a day.

    Used44 & TheNesMan - Thank you. I uploaded that avatar at home last night to try something different, but I can't see it at work. And yes, it is a robot: Soundwave stepping on Batman.

    Grey - That's what I see. I'll have to check it back out when I get home, but its really odd that some see the image and others don't.

    It happens to me too, so I gave up and will likely remain an avatar-less nub forever.

    Thanks Duke, I'll work on compiling a list of forum issues that could be impacting search engine results, but I'll need to explore around a bit more to find other issues.
