own picture as avatar

My own pic has sudenly gone and been replaced by a silly "red cross" in my profile and it therefore shows a "silly red cross" by my posts.  Angry
why is that?
I have been back to the setup of my profile and entered the correct location of my pic from my folders...to no avail  Sad

By chance I see that you have moved my post about the pic....Can I assume that I will be informed about it?

Re: own picture as avatar

When we move posts we don't normally send a notification - so the answer is no although there is a move post where it started from

Re: own picture as avatar

if you look where it was you will see the new address there  http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,90303.0.html
best is to copy the picture to your machine, then add it from there,  I have had trouble this week, for some reason it didnt like JPG, converted it to GIF, no problem

Stranger and stranger!
I wonder if it's because my PC understands the url because it has it on file? and nobody else but me therefore can see itHuh?Huh
By the way pierre, there is a silly red star where your avatar should be on my PC!

Re: own picture as avatar

I notice that the address has some "\" in it. Try changing these to "/".
By the way, I wouldn't normally see the image myself, as I disable any images not loaded from the community server. So, I only see avatars that are loaded into the user's profile.

@JohnJ
Although the url contained some "\" 's, it still successfully brought up the pic anyway.
However, I have changed the "\" 's  to"/" 's  as per your suggestion,and still the pic shows OK.
So it seems that  on my monitor it doesnt matter which formula I use.
BUT
Has my avatar now appeared to all?

The lack of appearance may depend upon the browser being used.
Internet Exploder (as it is really part of Windows) will understand "\" more readily than standard browsers like Firefox.
