Ya it doesn't let me change mine either. Ever since those changes happened awhile back I haven't been able to change my avatar. I usually am able to use the browse option, but it doesn't seem to want to work anymore. Not mad or anything just thought I'd put my 2 cents in.

huh. That's a little weird. I'm able to completely. Beard?




Guys that can't change their avatar, change your avatar settings to "no avatar" then save it. Then go back in and try to upload an avatar.

Just tried it and no luck. When I use the browse option now nothing will appear in the box beside the browse button when I select an image. Maybe its just not resizing them.

Have you tried using a file sharing site like photobucket and pasting the code in?

It just says after picking an image using the browse button that "upload of file failed".

I've tried this but was never 100% what to copy and paste. I know it says the URL, but is that the image code on Photobucket? I've tried to copy and paste all those options that they have for the images.

I had the same go round with the "down load failed". I sent the picture I wanted to upload to my e-mail address as an attachment and then downloaded the picture and left it on my desk top. I was able to upload with that picture. I cropped as much as I could with the pictures from my library but I couldn't get the kb's small enough. Good Luck...
My turn, how do you/we get all the added info in your threads? Like details, spec's options, upgrades and other important facts.
Thanks...
