Can't Change or Add my Avatar

Post by SSizler »

Hello Admins,

I wanted to update my avatar today, but could not complete the task.
I thought deleting the existing avatar would allow me to add a new one.
Instead I have no avatar now and can't add one.
Is there a problem with my account or is the problem with the site?
TIA for your assistance!

I see that. The only option is to delete your avatar, but there's no option to upload a new one, or select one of the stock forum avatars. Haven't changed my avatar for a long time, so I don't know when that disappeared. Hopefully a mod or an admin will be able to help you (us) out

I too lost my avatar about a year ago or longer and just lived without it. It is still there when I go into my profile and hit "edit avatar" and shows up as the current avatar, but does not display it anymore. No big deal

Glancing at the avatar page, it appears that there's a glitch with the image storage location.

There are two sets of 'avatars'. One is a set of gallery avatars. That looks to be missing, or the permissions are wanked. The other is a place for you to upload your own avatar - and that looks like it's in a read-only mode, so it's not available for use.
