    Just tried loading a new avatar from my computer hard drive, but I can't.

    Here is the avatar, just a standard gif file that meets all size requirements (75x75, 19.5 kB max):

    RedbellyAvatar_Evo-cropped.gif

    The error message I get is "Unable to save image"

    I have been unable to upload a new avatar for about two weeks now. I ended up choosing one of them made available on that page. Would rather have Tweetie though.

    Just to follow up on this problem. Here are 2 questions:

    New PF Contributors: are you able to upload an avatar?

    Admins: is it known what is or might be causing the problem? (Even if it isn't known how to fix it...)

    I continue to try and am still unable to as well. I can't get my old one back up. Can only use the ones offered.

    Thank you, I'm not happy with this temp avatar. I can't do much here on PF being a certified moron, but I like to play with my profile.

    You need to be a gold member to use an avatar.
