Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend...never owned a dog.
I love my new avatar!! Thank you!
It is so cute . Too bad my rankings in this pool aren't nearly as cute as my avatar LOL
I love my new avatar, but I can't get it to switch to the different ones when I use it. Any idea what I am doing wrong?
Maybaybie: I'll have to check the file size. If it gets too big, it won't rotate between images when you set it as your avatar on this forum.
If that's the case, I can tweak it and see if I can get it to work. Thanks for letting me know!
I just checked and that was the problem. The largest file size allowed for an avatar is 29.3 KB. The avatar I made for you was 32.5.
I used a free online image optimizer to shrink the file size down. The original image had over 192 colors, which made the file size larger. This smaller version has 96 colors, bringing the file size down to 28.5. It should work now.
Here's your reduced avatar:
And here's a link to the image optimizer I used in case anyone is interested:

Ohh I just saw my pool avatar for the first time. It's great!
Thanks pikachu! I might use it the next time I get to watch this show live.
Mine won't flip either but I love, love LOVE my PR avatar! Heck Pickchu I might even joing the DWTS now that Maks is back!
Some people dream of having a big swimming pool - with me it's closets."
PA Snow Bunny: I'm not sure why your avatar images won't rotate for you. I checked the file size and it's small enough for this forum. I tried setting your avatar as my avatar and it worked. Maybe you need to try saving the image to your computer (make sure to save it as a GIF) and upload it as your avatar from there.
I'm glad you like the picture! I did a pretty extensive Google image search trying to find just the right image for your team name--Runway Diva. Not any old model on a catwalk would do!
I just realized that I missed posting an avatar. I made one for vanillalatte's team, Bitter Kittens, and don't see it posted in this thread. I'm sorry about that vanillalatte! I didn't mean to exclude you!
Also, I have a second avatar for xmaskat. I started off making avatars just based on team names. When I saw Pins and Needles was your team, I realized I needed to include a kitty cat in the image so I made you a different avatar. You might as well have this one, too. It's a little hard to tell what the image is but it's a panda pincushion with the head falling off.
Thanks for that optimizer link, pikachu. It has so many great tools for the graphically challenged like me. I've bookmarked it and plan to use it a learning tool.
