I cannot change my profile picture!  I keep browsing and choosing a different photo and craftster keeps showing the same one!  I am a newbie here, am I doing something wrong?  Huh


Hey guys!

I merged quite a few threads with people having the same problem.  Smiley  If your new avatar does not immediately appear, you can wait a few minutes or...  The most likely solution is to clear your cache (your avatar is uploaded, but you can't see it because your browser is showing you a copy of your old one).  Here's how...
AOL:  
From the 'My AOL' menu, on the AOL toolbar,
Click 'Preferences', Then Click 'WWW'
Look for the 'Temporary Internet Files'
Click 'Delete Files', then click 'OK'.;
That should clear your cache and give you a fresh start. 

Internet Explorer:
Up top in the pull-down menus (File, Edit, Tools etc.), click Tools, then 'Internet Options'  This brings up a dialog with 7 tabs across the top (General, Security, Content...)
Click 'General;, the look for 'Temporary Internet Files'
Click 'Delete Files', check check off 'Delete all offline
content', then click 'OK' then click 'OK'.
Click 'OK' again and this should clear all cached pages.

Netscape:
Up top in the pull-down menus (File, Edit, etc.), click Edit,
then 'Preferences'.
Find 'Advanced'. Click the + sign in front of the word, 'advanced'.
You'll see 'Cache, Proxies, etc.........'
Click 'Cache'
On the right you'll see, buttons labeled 'Clear Memory Cache' and 'Clear
Disk Cache'
First, click 'Clear Memory Cache' when the "?" dialog appears click 'OK'
Then click 'Clear Disk Cache', when the "?" dialog appears, click 'OK'.
Click 'OK' again to close the Cache Dialog box.
This will clear all old info from your browser and the error should be
finished.

Firefox:
Go to Tools
Options
Advanced, Network. There should be a clear cache button there.

or...

Firefox version is 1.5.0.8
Privacy
Cache
Then "Clear Cache"

Thanks!

I haven't figured it out...I don't want to be an ignoramus, but how do I clear the cache? I don't see any option for it. Thanks!
