Make sure you are checking the box for 'I have my own avatar' or whatever that says. Took me a try or two to get it.

I ticked it and put in the url. The pic didn't change. I thought maybe it would when I saved changes, but it didn't. Cheers though

Make sure its the right format, I've made that mistake in the past.

try Image Shack (www.imageshack.us)

I use that whenever I want to post an avatar for any site.
