  • This shit ain't workin' no more.
    Trying to change from my evolution of shaving picture to something more contemporary.
    Every time I try to upload or hyperlink to an image it fails. Sometimes it states it's too large - fair enough - resize it just says "fail". I feel fail. I am disappoint.

    What are the specs for an avatar upload? 64 x 64? 50 x 50? Tried a variety from 30 x 30 up to 128 x 128 - gif, jpeg, all sorts.

    Somebody show me the error of my ways..

  • Basically, that crap avatar is with you 4eva...

  • Also consider the max file size of the image. It's 6kb.

  • Aha! 6KB - that's all I needed -though when in christs name does it say that? My search skills are obviously lacking.

  • Velocity Boy carved it, and many other restraints, into 531 steel under instruction from Sheldon 'beyond the grave' Brown

  • Basically, that crap avatar is with you 4eva...

    I really am, I just tried a 4kb gif and it told me I was a twat and that the upload had failed.

    Or something

  • What file format is the image?

  • tried encoding a lot of different ways: .GIF, .JPEG, .PNG, .BMP
    tried a multitude of sizes. I can change my profile display picture, and duly have, but no joy on this puppy.

  • i find i often have to persevere with uploading images a few times befor eit works. as long as you're within the 64x64 and 6kb range it should go eventually!

  • Patience/Persistence was never a virtue I've been familiar with. Looks like I'm stuck with with the various stages of beard experimentation.

  • still no luck eh...

  • still no luck.

    it's resized to 64x64, and at 4kb, yet it won't upload.

    and now kept telling me upload's failed.

  • avatar test

  • and again..sometimes you can see all the avatars on a page other times you can't. Just talkin to myself..

  • now trying to replace previous avatar but just getting the old one again and again

  • all good fun, maybe later can find a brick wall to headbutt to complete a recreational evening

  • others are having this problem.

  • trying all different file sizes. Feel flounce coming on

  • There is a problem with the avatar software type stuff.

    Feel free to flounce.

  • I'd help if I could, but I can't even access the internet these days...

  • I'll keep plugging away...save my flounce for special

  • Like someone calling you a fucktard?

  • no i get that a lot. Any help with changing avatar gratefully received.

  • same avatar but smaller, depressing
