Recommended Posts

Guess it's working now. Those instructions are a bit.....dated.....

I apologize if I'm asking a question that's been answered on one of the 111 preceding pages (most which only say "test"), but why do I suddenly have a black vertical bar on each side of my avatar?

Hola, Como estas? Testing, testing 1,2.3.

 

Luvvinbird - I believe the reason you have bars on either side of your avatar is because of the shape of your avatar. It is probably narrower than the pre-set shape allowed by the program. Try to reload your avatar and use the scaling feature to make it fit into the allowable "box".

 

If this doesn't work then you should be able to open or copy the picture into "paint" and edit it (if you have a PC.) A similar "standard" imaging program should allow you to edit if you have a Mac.

Many thanks for your reply. I didn't want to do anything until I heard back from this forum. The avatar has been fine for over one year, then suddenly a few days ago I noticed the black bars. I never altered anything, it just happened on it's own. Oh well, maybe it's time for a new avatar. The Great Auk is extinct, anyway, lol!
