    Heisenberg has had a good run, but it's time for a change. Unfortunately, the system won't allow me to upload a new custom avatar. Whenever I choose the .jpg I want for my avatar, ole Heisenberg shows up again. So, I check the 'delete current avatar' box at the bottom of the page and it does delete Heisenberg, but as soon as I select EITHER a custom avatar or one of the default avatars that the forum provides, Heisenberg shows back up. So, no matter what I select, my previous avatar always appears. The only choice I have is either no avatar or Heisenberg. Ole Walt is just not ready to go.

    Any ideas? Thanks

    Yep, doesn't work. Is anyone else having this issue?

    I'll give it a shot. Thanks

    Depends on your browser. Which browser do you use?

    I do not know. How can I find out? My home page is google, if that helps.

    EDIT: Okay, clicking on "Tools" I stumbled on "Safety" and think it's Internet Explorer.

    I just found something about "Inprivate browsing" I think it was called. Stops IE from collecting info. Sounds like a no-brainer. After you help me with the other thing I'd like to know if you or others take advantage of that.

    Oh and I saw a "delete browsing history". Would that clear cache or whatever?

    Yes, That erases your history. When you click on it, another box pops up that lets you check/uncheck different boxes. Make sure the ones for Temporary Internet files, Cookies, and History are checked, then hit delete.

    The In Private Browsing is for when you are watching porn and don't want your wife to know.

    Welp, I was finally able to change my avatar. Don't know that I did anything special. It wouldn't work one day, but then decided to work today, so who knows?
