Thanks Dave for the info. Had got the answer from a friend and a CAM member prior to your response.

I've never had problems with Avatars, but then I have always used the KISS method.

Avatar dimensions should not exceed 80 pixels X 80 pixels
Avatars should be in a simple, universal file format such as jpg or gif
Avatars should be uploaded from your local computer

I you MUST link to an external url, make sure that the site or service you are linking to does not require a login/password or subscription; these will cause errors to occur when you upload or te site tries to retrieve your url every time you post something or someone reads it. Links to external urls will also often fail if the url is down your picture gets moved or is deleted.

Try to keep things like Avatars as simple as possible; that way you are assured that they will work every time.

Ok thanks OB I appreciate the reply. I did resize in windows live photo gallery on my laptop (windows 7) down to 80x80 but then it said file exceeded 19kiB.
but I did not check my extension. Hopefully I can put this together now.

Is there a way to delete messages from your Inbox and Sent folder under My Responses?

On the right side of your inbox page, you have a column names Mark. Put a check mark beside each post you want to delete then go to the bottom of the inbox page and select Delete Marked from the Dropbox, then confirm your action. You have to do this on a page by page basis until you have deleted everything you want. This also applies to all pages on the PM system including Sent Messages and Outbox.

Thanks for the response. When I look at my Inbox and Sent folder from the My Responses link on the main CAM page the format of the displayed messages is not the same as the format of my PMs (which are as you described). Is there another way to see my response messages that uses the same format as my PMs so that I can access that Mark column?

Oh, sorry, I thought you were referring to the PM system. To my knowledge there is no way to delete these responses as they are part of the Classifieds sites archived logging system.
