Ashamed of graven image

  1. Weeks ago, I noticed my avatar changed to Butt-head. I took this as a direct insult to me and my family name, but figured it was some computer glitch. There are other posters here with the same avatar as me.

    As one of the first posters to appear here with their own image, it's an attack on me and my family name to have this graven image of Butt-head to top it. Why have I been forsaken? I keep trying to upload a new avatar, but can't :-(

    I openly apologize for whatever i did to be condemned to this graven image. What do I have to do to be able to appear here with my own avatar image. I'm sorry.

    Oh Mario--where have thou been???? The avitar can be changed I promise you. The shame of it all will be over soon.

    Make sure the box checked for submit my own avitar is marked. This will help to bring back your friendly face to us once again.

    There's no way you could possibly be a Butthead.

    Because that's Beavis

    I would imagine it's just a technical problem, and not a personal slight against you.

    We all know that you are not butthead... (we've seen your picture on another thread)
    Are you uploading to this site or from your own url where you have your pics stored?
    I too had a problem and just waited a day and tried it again and no problems!
    I think that butthead just comes up if you click to have an avitar but no working url.

    It's not fair to me or my people to be represented with Beavus or Butthead or anything that is not my representation. It makes me so angry that I have been depressed, and won't post, because of it. I can't help taking it as a personal "rub" because of something I might have posted here. Please forgive unto me this unknown deed and restore my rightful ability, as a poster, to have freedom of avatar. I'm sorry

    I consider myself computer literate, and have looked all over the pages.
    Thank you Giuseppe for trying to help me. It is wrong to have a posters avatar humiliated like this, in front of everyone :-(
    You too Zumalong. I don't know what to do and have decided to just drink myself to sleep this evening over it. I'm sorry. (hic)

    Here's a thought... why not go in and select one of the other premade avitars until you figure out what the problem is?
    (You really have been missing out on some FUN stuff! You should check out the gossip thread, you are mentioned a lot... (just to show ya how special you are to the people here and that they notice when you're not posting)

    Nurse good guy, you are right about letting it go, but some things are easier said than doing. You appear with your selected image; Why do I have to have some silly icon? I'm sorry for feeling like this, but it's hard to get over.

    I owe my presentl life to allnurses,com, especially for carrying me through some pretty tough times when I was beaten up and left for dead by reality nurses. The people here at allnurses.com repaired me emotionally, in almost an instant. I am forever in the debt of anyone who helped me out/restored my emotonal back to positive during my two posts/pleas for help. I love you. :kiss

    Okay in a show of support to you Mario, I have changed my avitar to that of butthead too!
    I'll leave it like that through the weekend to give you a chance to fix yours.
