I can't seem to get my avatar to upload. I've changed the size, done a HD upload, a site-side upload...no joy. The auto-message seems to confirm my upload, even though nothing has happened. Can anyone help me? Is there a setting I am unaware of?

I'm having the same problem. but nothing worked for me

edit: Darn it, I just saw that the last post to this thread was Jan of LAST year.
Is this entire forum is nothing but a wasteland filled with a few sinfest fans wondering the desolate tract in search of sanity.

Mutt: the only way I got mine to work was following the advice zeezee linked to. Do it step-by-step using ImageShack just like the post by Ms. Frisby will show. For now, it's the only way to get your avatar seen! Try it.

Either that, or there are other sub-forums that people post in.


...


Nah, ridiculous suggestion.

Oh thank god, People...of sorts.
Yeah the link was no help, all I’m getting is an “unable to load avatar message”
Sad

Ah well fuck it, who needs a face anyway

local hosted avatars don't work. you can however link to any off-site picture as an avatar.

Please don't do anything horrendously large, tho.

by the by, this particular subforum isn't where the cool people hangout.

That really, sucks, Mutt. I wish I could be of more help, but following Ms. Frisby's Link to off-site Avatar instructions were the only thin that worked for me. You're using Imageshack, right? I tried other hosts and they failed miserably.

And Yorick's absolutely right. You'll find LOTS more to do/see/say/etc. in the other subforums!

I think with this demonstration of skill and intellect, mutt is best left to find another forum.

Okay, listen up people, we are reinstating the hazings !

I was going to let him figure it out. I mean really, there are some obvious usage statistics on the main page...

I use photobucket with absolutely no issues.

Hmmm. Maybe Photobucket was just having an off day when I was having issues. Oh well, it worked out in the end. Perseverence!

If it isn't the webhost, the fault would be mine! We can't have that.
