    First you have to find a good healthy goat to sacrifice, then I can help you from there.

    Go to Gravatar.com and sign up with the email you are using on Buxr.com. Once you upload and activate an avatar there it will be automatically visible on Buxr.com

    You will have to have an avatar picture to upload as well, but that is easy to accomplish. Just do a web search for "avatar".

    How long does it typically take before an avatar uploaded to gravator.com shows up? I just searched for and read this post. The strange thing was upon going to gravatar.com, I was already signed up. I reset my password and uploaded a picture (as there was none already there).

      It should appear right away. Try clearing browser cache if it doesn't

    Alright, I figured I need to change my boring face to something more like me Wink and since we had a wild party last month I used one of the shots. That is me in a birthday hat! Clear browser cache everyone! Smile

      I wish the picture was a little bigger. I like the pic though. Is that balloon on your head?

      I don't see your avatar either. Go back to 'gravatar.com' and check that you are using the same email that you used for signing up to Buxr. It usually doesn't take more than a few minutes to show up

      When you go to your account at gravatar.com, can you see a green frame around your avatar on the page where it says "Select an email address (below) to modify or add a new email"?

      I think I know what the problem is. When you added it, you gave it PG rating and it needs to be G rated to show up on Buxr. On that page where you manage your avatars, click on Check Avatar and you will see that it will not show the avatar next to "G or better"

      After you upload the image, there will be a box on that page. Drag the box borders to fit your entire picture. Gravater will shrink/crop it for you.

      After you uploaded your image, have you clicked on it and confirmed you want to make it your primary avatar? The first mistake I made when using the site is upload a bunch of image files and selecting none

      Another thing, make sure you rate your avatar as "G" (I believe the default rating is different).

      do you have any other pics along with the one you want to use? If you do, get rid of 'em. That usually helps me.

      Yep. I was having trouble finding a decent picture that you could actually see. My oldest is making a kind of weird face but I still like this pic. I'm hoping I can find a better one soon.

    Ok, I know we are beating this dead horse here and I am just going to beat it some more...

    WTH am I doing wrong!?!? I set up an account on gravatar with the same email addy that my buxr account is with. The gravatar email addy is all lower case, the buxr email addy isnt (both the same though!) but I can not change either... so what do I do now? Evil

      If case is the issue then just update your email address on record with Buxr to match what you have on Gravatar. I am sure you can do that at your Account page: http://www.buxr.com/account
