Hi, My Buddy I con won't change. Can anyone tell me why? I know it said to wait 15 minutes, but when I got up this morning it still hadn't changed. Can any one help? Thanks a lot!

Try setting it back to your original buddy icon, then switch it to the new one. Now your on the page that says the whole "fifteen minutes" thing (although, you should already know this). However, before you exit out of the page that says the fifteen minutes thing, refresh it, and see if it's changed. This always works for me, Hope it helps you :)

I had the same problem, I just changed it over and over and then it eventually took. For me though, it would change over and then revert back to my old one for no reason at all. I probably had to change it about 8-9 times.

I had the same problem, probably just a bug with MOCpages, or try clearing your cache, that might work!

It actually depends on the type of file. What kind of picture is it? .bmp? .png?

The buddy icon glitch has beena thorn in our sides for a while. My advice (since we're aware there's a glitch in there somewhere) is to just keep trying BUT keep in mind that a lot of the time it'll take MOCpages a good few hours to "catch up" to your request. So the thing to remember here is, do the change but ONLY do it ONCE (then sit and wait). If you try to change it 4 or 5 times, it'll take that much longer for the pages to catch up to your request. So if it would normally take say... 5 hours for your icon to change and you click the update button 7 or 8 times then you're looking at more than a day before your icon changes... and by then you've gotten ticked and tried to change it back to the original and... you see where this is going.

And then... sometimes this ISN'T the problem... sometimes it's the file type you're using (which I'll admit, I'm not good with that stuff. Kelso's the image guy) so that could be the problem as well.

My advice... patience...

Good luck all!
