I was wondering if anyone can tell me how to insert an icon? I went to the settings page and tried to put a picture there but nothing happened. What am i doing wrong?

Did you hit the update profile setting button underneath the change icon area?

Does the picture you are trying to upload meet these parameters?

Valid file types: gif, jpg, png
Maximum filesize: 30kb
Maximum Dimensions: 75px x 75px

It has to be pretty small. I have found that thumb nail size works most every time if I google images. Here are the dimensions that will fit as an icon: Valid file types: gif, jpg, png Maximum filesize: 30kb Maximum Dimensions: 75px x 75px. Photoshop will allow you to resize photos, and there are some free ones on the web. Here is a link to one: http://shrinkpictures.com/
