Hi

Just wanted to let someone know that I was trying to change my avatar this afternoon and it kept saying, error: upload failed, please contact an administrator.

At first I thought it was the pic I'd wanted, but its done it with all of them, including the one I was changing it from when I tried to return to it.

thanks for any help you can offer, don't worry, not urgent!

Sometimes refreshing your browser after you update can help. I know I have had problems changing mine before. It could also be due to the board move, though Vera and LIndy would know for sure.

Could the avatar you are using be a gif file? We don't allow those as gif files can be animated and animated avatars slow the loading of the board for those with slower connections.

thanks for the reply nicole

I've had problems with it before, like you've described, but this is giving me a different message than it has before, about upload failed. And the pic definitely isn't gif. I guess it is a glitch but I'm not worried about it, just letting someone know!

you mean the one in negative with the tear running down her face?

I guess I thought it was really morbid and no one liked it and it might freak them out! i don't know if it seems like 'me' and whether it makes people wary of me because of it!

I can't upload an avatar as well. At first I thought it was because I'm new to all this but since other people have had this problem maybe it's nit just me. Any help would be great.

Isabelle.

Neverrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr... no but seriously... good luck with the avatar thing. That happened to me before and it was the 'skin' I chose for AS or the image was too big of a file.

I better see a new shade of yourself (via avatar) when I get back home miss thang.
