I see some of you have been able to update your profile picture. I know where to go to do it but every time I try I get two messages - one is in green saying 'picture has been resized' (which is fine and I'm assuming the green check means good to go). The other message has a red x and it says 'the email jlsjjsmom@yahoo.com is already taken'. That's my email but it seems to be preventing me from uploading a picture. Did those of you that were able to change your profile pic have any problems? I can upload the picture from here within the message, just can't get it to be my profile pic.

It has to do with the changes to teh baord. There is a way to work around it, but I won't grip about trying to find it on the help board, but I'll keep looking and if I can find the link to the post without having to refresh 8 million times, I'll post it when I find it. Oh, you have to go to your profile at the top of the page, not the right hand corner. FOr some reason there are 2 log ins, one for the boards, and one for IV in general. If you click on your user profile at teh top left hand corner of the page and go to preferences or something similar, you should be able to change your profile picture there. (if any of that made sense)

Okay, here is the link to your user account, http://www.ivillage.com/account/info and here is a link to the last update thread that I think explains everything that's going on... http://www.ivillage.com/forums/ivillage-women/around-ivillage/ivillage-help/ivillage-help/latest-update-1-17-13

Thanks, Arryl. I did go to the upper left hand corner to try to upload a profile pic. And I saw your link - I remember reading that at some point but I'll go through the replies and see if I can find anything. Have a good weekend!
