Wide, I'm constantly losing my avatar. I've tried a few different ones all with the same problem. No biggy just thought it was odd.

Squid - I notice you don't have one now, so maybe the problem has come back, but if you are linking your avatar to an off-site image, then it will disappear whenever that site goes down for some reason like maintenance. If you host it in your gallery here, it should be solid.

I uploaded it into my photo gallery, and loaded it from there and we'll see what happens. Thanx for responding ;)

Yep - it's there now! Only time it should disappear is when the site goes down because Wide blew somethin' up! :lol:

FYI- a lot of sites will see that you are linked to them for an avitar and cut the cord. With enough people doing the same thing it can really eat up their bandwidth. Some are even nice enough to replace the cool one with something advertising their site.
