I might be just over looking what I'm doing but I'm trying to put a updated photo of me on here.  I tried turning it into a url gif, I took out the extra http://.  I keep ending up with it being blank or defaulting to no avatar.

If you have a "?" mark in the link, as in Rosie Nell's link for example, the chances are the link is to a program, and the stuff to the right are parameters being passed to the program.  To see if your link is good, you should be able to paste it into the address of your browser and it should display with no page, no descriptions, nothing other than the image itself... i.e., http://www.oldmerlin.com/img/Avatar_08.jpg and you should be good.  The link HAS to be directly to an image.

Before uploading, if you don't want to be squeezed or stretched, use an image that is cropped to a square aspect ratio, like 300x300 pixels.  There may be an upper limit on the size for this forum to handle, but I've put up some that are 300 - 400 pixels square without issue.

that might be the problem.. I think I just have to get photobucket back up and load it there.  cause my last pic worked from there.  I'll give it a try.

Thanks.

I seem to be having issues getting my avatar to work.  Here's the link, any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Yes... you've specified a URL to a page, not an image.   cut/paste this into the field:
