    So everytime I try to up load a new profile pic, it acts like it loads, then shows a blank, gray square where the pic should be.  ON the upper left corner it has a little red ex.  I even tried to upload old photos I'd used before. No deal. Just won't load pics for me anymore. I even changed the size of the pic. Still won't go....  Glitch somewhere? Don't think it's on my puter.

        I suppose common knowledge I change my avatar just about everyday big_smile and yes I would say maybe 1 in 4 attempts work, and I also find it works better if you go through profile settings.

        Your not alone girl

        Dare to try firefox? Not that I am a pro, but it fixed most hubpages problems for me.

          Well, it's the only thing I've ever had a glitch with on Hub. I'm gonna try Maddie's suggestion first.

    Try holding the shift key while hitting the refresh button on your browser.  Sometimes browsers hold onto old javascript that inhibits you from seeing your own profile picture (or continues to show you your old one for a while), while the rest of us see the new one just fine.

        I just tried to do this..........
        It actually uploaded the pic. Then I cropped it. After that it just went back to the same one.   Are you guys seeing the avatar that says Beat LYme Disease across the picture?

              Wait a minute.....I'm showing my avatar that's me with a gun, Bible & dog..really, I swear....& it says 'Beat Lyme Disease" in bright green.  You don't see that?  Am I hallucinating?

                  At least I know I don't need to assess myself. Okay, well.....I'm going to continue to try to change it.  I don't know about switching to Firefox. I'm afraid it would screw something else up. I don't feel like messing with it.  Darn, it used to NEVER be a problem.

    lol  girl I bet if you tried posting something crude that would get you banned I swear $50 bucks says it would work, then with our luck we'd have those avatars stick and be looking for a new site to write on that probably doesn't have avatars lol

    lol

    Maddie I swear I'm joking, but how funny would that be hmm:

    Tah-dah!!!  I got it , I got it!!!  See, I did it.

    I did the trick Maddie suggested a couple of times. Then when I clicked on CROP, I clicked twice really quick.  That did it...

    I'm at the top of the Space Needle in Seattle in this one. I thought it was cool since I'm so scared of heights....captured the whole experience on video.
