If you tried changing your avatar recently (the picture that appears on the left side of your posts like so), you may have noticed an error upon upload. It's not just you; other users have experienced the same issues.

If you wish to change your avatar photo, please respond to this topic with the picture you would like set as your avatar. You'll need to upload your picture to a site such as Imgur or if you got your image from Tumblr or wherever else, link us to that image. Keep in mind that the following guidelines still apply*:

Quote

Avatars -
  • Must be 100 x 100 pixels or smaller
  • Must have a file size no larger than 90KB [92,160 bytes]
  • Must be suitable for all users [No obscene, eye-stressing, or offensive content]
*Signature + Avatar Rules

Gravatar

You also may have noticed a secondary option. It allows you to set an avatar from your Gravatar account.
  • Navigate to the website (linked above) and set up an account:

    Posted Image

  • If you do not have a Gravatar/WordPress account, then you need to sign up for one:

    Posted Image

  • Set up a username, email and password. A validation email will be sent to the email address you set when you signed up with a link to validate your account. Click on that link and your account should be validated. Sometimes it may not come instantly. Sometimes it might be caught by your spam filter, so be sure to check your "Spam" folder too.
  • Once you have created an account, you will arrive at a screen that looks like this:

    Posted Image

  • You won't have any images uploaded yet, contrary to the above picture. Click the "add a new image" link and it will bring you to a page that will allow you to upload from various such as your computer's hard drive, an external link (copying and pasting the link from a website), a previously uploaded image or using your computer's webcam. The image that is highlighted and located in the coloured box above will be the avatar that will be showing on your account.
  • To set an image for your account, simply click on the image. A pop up will appear asking you to confirm. Pressing "confirm" will set your primary image as your avatar.
  • Now that you've done all that, navigate back to your profile settings ("My Settings") and "Change Photo...".
  • Simply enter in your email address and your avatar will now be set:

Found a way that worked for me and a few friends to change their avatar. Go to your profile, hover above the "change" button on the avatar and rather than left click it, right click it and select "Connect in New Tab".

This will redirect you to the Photo Editor where you can select the file from your Computer and it should change.

Unsure if this was just a solution for just me and a few of my friends but it seemed to work each time! Hopefully this will help others, if only a few ^^;

Thanks :-)

You may also try the above solution as well. If that doesn't work, you may still request a change here.

“People are continually pointing out to me the wretchedness of white people in order to console me for the wretchedness of blacks. But an itemized account of the American failure does not console me and it should not console anyone else. That hundreds of thousands of white people are living, in effect, no better than the "African Americans" is not a fact to be regarded with complacency. The social and moral bankruptcy suggested by this fact is of the bitterest, most terrifying kind.”

I've tried all of the options above, but I can't get the image to save as my profile picture (opening in a new tab at least got the image to load).

This is the image I'm trying to use;

Edit: Between the few minutes ago when I tried changing my picture, until now, the image loaded :')

Glad to know you got that resolved. You know what would look even cooler? ... If it was transparent. B-) There's actually quite a few tools (that can remove the opaque layer and convert it to PNG) besides your ordinary, expensive photoshop.

I've been without an avatar for months on end. I can't use my Gravatar email because it keeps referring me back to the email that I used to register this account, and no images I "upload" are even taking.

Just out of curiosity, is this an IPB issue or an issue on my end?

PM a Senior Moderator and they can set one for you :-). I'm pretty sure it's an IPB issue but one thing I was told is that Chrome tends to be causing bugs...
