    Question Avatar Problems

    Is anyone else having trouble uploading a custom avatar from their computer? I've resized the image to 80 x 80 pixels and made sure the files size was below the limit. I also tried to resize below the 80x80 pixel limit. I've tried two different avatars and both below the maximum 64 KB size restrictions. Both are also standard jpg files. But i always get an invalid file error.

    Is this an issue with the forum or an i doing something wrong??
    Thanks

    Ditto! I've tried both the uploading and direct linking options. I also tried both using jpg and gif formats. Nothing works!

    I think the server is having issues with file hosting in general.

    If that was the case, then the direct linking option (at least) should be working. The avatar section gives you the option to direct link, but I'm getting the same error as the upload option.

    Any chance this will get fixed? I've tried everything and can't get one to upload. I've even tried saving someone else's avatar and then uploading it and it will tell me "invalid file" :S

    Angry Ditto

    I also haven't been able to change avatars, either uploading a file or just submitting an URL. Either way, I always get "Invalid File".

    Same problem. Invalid file no matter which way I try to make it work, or what format I try and upload. But some people have avatars, so it can't be impossible. What gives?

    I have to say, from the standpoint of someone waiting for his android pinball tables to be patched into working order, the fact that this thread was started six months ago is a little discouraging.

    Thx for the info, that's good to know, I was a bit disappointed I couldn't choose an avatar when I joined this forum.
