If I change my display image on yahoo messenger as a pic, then I am able to see it. But, when I change it to an avatar, It is blank. I have latest yahoo msgr 11.

Because , When when u change it in avatar , U Click on Avatar Option, Let me Clear You. On One Time ,Only 1 Option will be show. it is your Pic , or It is your Avatar... So when u select Avatar Option ,then Only Avatar will be Show, But When u Select Display Image , Then Only Your Display Image will Show.... Both Option can't Display on Same Time....
