It sounds like it might be a cookie problem. Are you browsers cookies turned on, and are they active for the sites in question? Also, when you log in, do you check the "remember me" box?

Yeah, it is somewhat confusing as the rules are not always followed, but here is what is SUPPOSED to happen:

1. For your forum avatar, any image may be used, including artwork, photos with writing, etc, as long as it fits the 200x200 format.

2. For your costume avatars (icons representing your costumes on the cosplayer pages) you may only have a photo of you in the costume, sans text. There are a lot of people who break this rule and upload artwork, and that is not allowed. If you see any artwork/offical images used for costume icons, click the "report costume" button on the costume page, and choose "icon" under your reason. I don't know how well this works, as I've reported a lot of icons and never seen any removed, but I assume its being kept track of somewhere, so I'd do it anyway.

3. For actual photos in the galleries, no artwork or copyright images (including CGs) are allowed, nor are non-cosplay photos (this includes pics of con buildings, non-cotume photos of cons, con guests, etc.) UNLESS it is in the Non-Cosplay Gallery. We are each allowed up to 5 non-cosplay images (i.e. look at my kitty!) as long as they are placed in that gallery. If you see any artwork/copywritten images, click the "report photo" button under the image, and if you see a non-cosplay image, check to see what gallery it is in before reporting it. Unlike the costume icons, these are taken care of for the most part, though I'm sure the mods have tons of reports to sort through.

I hope that helps clear it up, and its nice to see people ask!
