    Why?
    Sorry, that is not a valid file extension
    maybe a mod or someone can tell me why I can't upload this avatar.

    The URL you have listed for your avatar is wrong.
    The proper url is
    h ttp://www.rontech.8m.com/cgi-bin/i/images/sanguinea_avatar.jpg
    (I put a space between the h and t so you could read the url without the board turning it into a link)

    I decided not to use that URL because they won't let me link to it.
    I tried this one. it will let me link to it.
    h ttp://members.cox.net/rontech/sanguinea%20avatar.JPG
    and it didn't work either.

    You didn't capitalize JPG when you put it in. Links are usuallycase sensitive.

    h ttp://members.cox.net/rontech/sanguinea%20avatar.JPG doesn't work because of the space between the "h" and the "t" in "http"

    Actually it's not working because the file is named sanguinea%20avatar.JPG

    in his avatar line he has it named sanquinea%20avatar.jpg
    The space was there in the post just so we could see the line without it turning into a link by the board.

    As Pat mentioned, it's case sensitive.

    Well you know what they say.....3rd times the charm.
    Let's try this again.....
    EDIT: I tried uploading the URL like this:
    h ttp://members.cox.net/rontech/sanguinea%20avatar.JPG
    but without the space between the h and t.
    it didn't work, said it's not a valid extension.
    Does the %20 have to be there? I guess so.

    its because there is a blank space in the filename..
    blanks are bad..
    instead of:

    sanguinea avatar.JPG

    name it:

    sanguinea-avatar.JPG
    or
    sanguinea_avatar.JPG
    or
    sanguineaavatar.JPG

    use only letters, numbers, underscores or dashes in filenames..
    no funky characters like @#$%^&*,
    and no blank spaces..
    try re-naming it without the blank and I bet it will work..
