OK, i'm fairly well along in my computer life of 12 years but putting blinkies in my signature for these forums has me stumped.

i have found my blinkie. i have downloaded them. i have uploaded them. and they never show up. i've put one and i've put 4, it does not matter.

i went to someone's profile,whose name i am forgetting, and followed those instuctions carefully. still no blinkies in my signature.

...will someone take pity on this over 50 woman and show me the way??? anyone???

peace,

tish

That would probably be my profile you went to.

I actually have a simple solution for you. You seem to have a ton of space where the text would be. SO go to your account settings and put your cursor in the signature text feild and hold down delete for a while. Then hit update and if your blinkies are still uploaded they should appear.

Also, I've found that if the blinkie is too big according to PBS regulations and you try to upload it anyway, it just won't.
