    I am having issues changing my avatar. I also received a pm from a user with the same issue. Not really sure what the issue is, but I have tried multiple ones at different times and still it just shows a broken image link. This started last night (June 11th) sometime around 10 pm EST.

    The bug we've seen with new avatars showing as broken images seems to have reared it's ugly head again.

    EDIT: Looks like it has been fixed.

    I cannot get an avatar to work on my profile on this forum, even resizing them to 80 x 80 they never show.

    Anyone got a titanium avatar link that will work?
     
  13. When I go to change it again, will I need to contact you again or will I be able to upload om my own?

    Liam, I moved this to the Suggestion box for support. It's been an issue lately.

    You can still do it yourself. When the problem gets fixed, the last avatar you tried to set will appear. That's why Liam's is showing now.

    Unfortunately, until a more permanent solution is found by the devs, all you can do is set it manually and wait. The new avatars will all be processed at once and all appear suddenly, typically within the same day, it would seem.

    The same is true for avatars set by mods/admin, unfortunately, so we can't do anything to speed up the process.

    EDIT: I set yours for you Sharon. For some reason the images you've used give an error message, but resaving the file seemed to fix it.

    If I'm reading that correctly, does that mean the one I just set myself should appear later on at some point today?
