When I remove the older avatar and go to replace it with a new one, the older one reappears.
I cannot change the avatar to a new one, no matter what combination of moves I make. Stock avatars won't work also.
I'm using the radio buttons, ect . . .
Feedback please.

Open a page with a post of yours, or any page showing your avatar. Then press F5 on your keyboard. That will clear the cache, and re-download the image, which will appear as the new one.

Thank you Valek.
Your information did not work in my case, so in desparation I changed the jpeg file to a gif file - and for some reason it worked.
Again, thank you for trying to help me out.

It's very unusual that it wouldn't work. That's actually the solution to a very common internet issue.

Either way, I'm glad you were able to get it resolved smile

I had this problem before. Next time, try this:

Select "I no longer want an avatar" first, then push "submit".

Next, delete your board cookies.

Upload your new avatar, submit and then delete the cookies one more time.

This worked for me.

Often what works, is simply load up your new avatar, and hit "refresh" at the top of the browser.
