Avatar changes?

Postby AshyJade » Sun Oct 28, 2012 2:13 am

Hi

I had an avatar which I uploaded straight from my computer (it had the option to upload from machine) i went to change it and deleted my old one and now theres no option to click to upload a different one?? Was it taken away or is it a tech issue?? Ive tried uploading from a photobucket account and flickr but it keeps making my avatar sideways...

You are correct, there is no longer an option to upload an image from your computer. The only way to have an avatar image is to link to an off-site file.

As for the sideways avatar, did you edit the photo in Photobucket prior to linking it for your avatar? Sometimes it takes quite a while for PB images to update. Perhaps try saving as a copy and using that link?
