I took your siggy to Gifworks and reduced the number of colors until it was within the accepted kb range...

The cat avatar is in JPEG and 80x80 pixels.

It could be because the congratulations graphic you posted is three times the allowed size at 36kb.

You need to wrap the link with an image code... [IMG]insert image here[/IMG]

Try this one. I keep getting "file too large" on the other even though it says 11.9kb. Try saving the graphic to your computer first and then uploading from your computer to OLS. Double click the graphic until it pops up on a blank white page, then right click and save as.

That's the trick after you download the image and save it you have to click on that little thing that says "Insert Image" It will put the brackets in the box and it will look like nothing else is there but when you go to the forums and look all is well!

Click save after you do each step.

I'm still here for a reason and it's my responsibility to get up everyday and fight the good fight. Spread the joy wherever I go and drive out darkness with light and hate with love.
