Yea, I know I'm a newbie but I'm going to try to help anyway.
Do you mean a photo for your profile page? Under modify your profile there are separate fields for a photo, one for your profile and one for your Avatar. Plus you have to log off and back on to activate it.

It'll only show up if you added a bio to your page (I think). I'm actually working on a replacement for the profile page, so this will change.

Thanks, that did the trick!
Actually, I don't use an avatar in the forums specifically BECAUSE it DOES show up on my profile. I don't want it on my profile page.
I've noticed something along these lines. I originally had an avatar that was a photograph (http://img.Groundspeak.com/user/89355_300.jpg). I have since uploaded a different avatar image that is a drawn image (http://img.Groundspeak.com/user/89355_800.jpg).
I changed my avatar to the second image and on the "My Cache Page" it shows up properly. However, the forums page is still pulling the old image.
I had noticed something before along these lines. I had a banner image with a web link. I didn't like that the banner appeared on the forums with a border around it so I deleted the code for the link and left just the image. However, the link code continued to appear in postings. I needed to delete all of the code from the Signature section altogether, make a post and then re-add the code.
I have changed my profile to "no avatar" to make this posting. If it shows without an avatar then I will set it again to my second avater and see if it behaves.
well, that didn't work. Even tough I had set my profile to "No Avatar", my first avatar did appear.

Did you log out of both gc.com AND the forums?

Well, I changed from the first avatar to the second sometime last week, I believe. I haven't specifically logged out and back in.
So, I have logged out and back on. I have changed my settings to "No Avatar" and logged out again. Now, I have logged on to post this message and test to see what happens.
Ah ha! The logging out and then back on has resolved the issue. I really should have figured that one out on my own.
