Sorry, Joe, we can only remove avatars and not upload them. Did you try refreshing after the error message popped up?

Hmm... Does it say "Avatar upload failed, contact a staff member to rectify the problem" or is it a different error message?

I tried removing your avatar hoping it might clear it...Can you try uploading something else so we can determine if it's your account or just that picture?

upload the image to image shack or photobucket....reduce it to thumbnail or avatar size and save it, and then right click and save that copy to your hard drive and upload it on here.

(If you did this already....I apologize!!)

Okay. I was just about to say Marisa's idea worked. I tried it for myself. Joe, you can resize images you find in either ImageShack or PhotoBucket. Then save as to your hard drive and then upload it. smile.gif

Always click "Remove Avatar" before any uploading. Ensure it is the allowable size also.

Every time I try to upload an avatar I get this message.

The error returned was:
The upload failed. Please contact a member of staff to help rectify the problem

I don't have photobucket or anything like that...

I used to be able to upload pictures...but now I can't even upload the one I used to have....

Have you tried to upload the same picture twice in a row? Uploading an avatar usually doesn't work for me on try one, but if I try again right after my first try, it usually works. Weird I know, but that's how I've gotten it to work for me.

1.) Always click "Remove Avatar" before any uploading.
2.) Browse and find your file to upload. Click "Update Avatar".
3.) Go back after you receive the first error message.
4.) Refresh the page.
5.) Finally, click "Update Avatar" once again.

Also, ensure it is within the allowable size.
