When it gives you that message, refresh and the avatar should upload.

Click on 'My Controls' and then you should see the 'Change your personal photo' in the menu on the left under personal profile menu.

Adding to what jdrenken said....

We have a maximun file size of 50mb.....make sure your picture or image is less than that or it will not let you upload.

If you get an error message telling you to contact the board administrator, go back and re-upload again...second time is a charm.

One last thing....you will still see your old picture until you refresh your browser. Good luck. smile.gif

I'm not sure if it's because of the server change or not, but yesterday and today I've been trying to upload an avatar, and even if it follows the requirements, it gives me an error message that it failed to upload the avatar. Is anyone else getting the same kind of error message?

I'm not sure if it's because of the server changes or not, I also posted this in the avatar/photo problems thread, but for the last 2 days I tried uploading an avatar but even if it followed the requirements, I got an error message. I noticed that just a few days before the change, someone in that thread asked how to get an avatar, his question was answered, and now that user has an avatar, so perhaps it could be related to this.

You have to upload it twice. If it meets all the specs and says "cant be uploaded" after you try, try again. It always works for me

I tried doing so several times in a row, even uploading it 3 times and trying 20 times in a row and it still didn't work. I also just tried to do the same on another computer and it also didn't work. The last time I changed my avatar a few months ago, it did so with no problem on the first try, now when I tried to do it nothing worked. Not only that, but the first time I tried it yesterday, when it showed me the error message, not only did it fail to upload a new avatar, it deleted the one I already had, leaving me with no avatar.

I'm going to try to do some testing with this next week and get with the new techs now that we have a new hardware/database system in place. Hopefully a fresh eye would be helpful.
