    Have you tried selecting 'do not use avatar' so it'll delete any custom avatar and reset to none. It shouldn't make a difference, but maybe just leave it off for a day. Then go back and try selecting a new avatar again? Also make sure that your image file size and pixel dimensions aren't too big, if you try uploading am image that's too big it does funny things sometimes.

    Otherwise your best bet is try to catch an admin on the irc channel. There usually pretty helpful if you catch them on there when theyre online.

    That's just a couple things I can think of to try. Good luck.

    it's a bug in vbulletin, you can't use custom avatars, because you have special character(s) in your username

    pm a mod, they can help you

    edit: nvm, MADerator was faster :)

    I think admins can change username's in vb without affecting anything else.

    So find a admin and hope he'll change your username.

    Forgive my ignorance, but where does one find an admin?

    Is there an admin page?

    If you click on the Main Forums link and scroll down to just below the forums list you'll see a link for View Forum Leaders.

    Click that link and it will show you a list of all the mods and admins. You can PM one of the admins in that list if you want. I'd recommend Clix or Pofecker because they seem to be the ones usually taking care of this type of thing.

    As I said in my earlier post though the mods and admins get a lot of PMs so it's easy for yours to get missed.

    The best way to get ahold of a mod or admin is to log onto the BHW IRC server. You can usually find one of them logged on there and they'll usually take care of your problem right away while you're chatting with them.

    If you haven't used the BHW IRC chat you can find it explained in this thread:
    BlackHatWorld's Live IRC Chat Network
    It also gives a link for a chat widget, but that doesn't work now for some reason. You actually need to follow the instructions given in that thread for using a chat client.

    I've summarized it here for you:
    1. Go get a chat client. (Mirc.com is recommended)
    2. Set up irc.************ in the servers tab.
    3. Connect and then type "/join #makecash".

    It's really pretty easy.

    If you need more tutorial than that just use google and seach for how to set up an irc client and use irc.

    Good luck. :cool:
