Issue with adding an avatar
« on: December 27, 2017, 07:00:46 PM »
With photobucket now charging members to display their images on other sites, ive had to switch hosts for my photos. The problem is, even making sure my photos are 80x80 pixels and using the direct link, my profile wont update with my photo. Ive tried various of the other links that come with the photo but none work. Im using imgur, btw.

Any help would be appreciated.

Ive tried both, but it still just goes to no picture.

You should be able to upload something for your avatar directly from your computer.
If theres a way to do that Ive yet to figure it out. it gives me the option of using a link or choosing from the sites gallery.

I see an avatar. If you don't see it, yopu may need to clear your computer's cache.

I find your arguments vague and unconvincing.

Quiet! *Slap* And there’s a fresh one if you mouth off again.

The option to upload a file as your avatar is not actually available to regular members.
Not sure why it was set that way, but I am not going to change that permission without input from Master Yoda.
