Can't change/upload avatar
« on: May 18, 2015, 08:48:43 pm »
I was going to change my avatar, but for some reason it won't let me, and I think it removed the one I had before. Giving me some error like:

" The following errors occurred when trying to save your profile:
The avatar you have selected is either too large or not an avatar."

When I try to use an image from a url and tells me that "The attachments upload directory is not writable. Your attachment or avatar cannot be saved." if I try to upload one. Is anyone else having this problem or is it just me?

--Edit: Nevermind, I think the picture was too big.

I've been having the same problem, even with images I know are small enough. What gives?

...I have no idea. 

I think it may need a higher up like Sigma or even Krad.

Sorry for being useless. :-/

Are you having the problem when uploading the avatar, or when linking from a url?

If the former, try uploading the picture to an image hosting service like imgur and then using the "Specify avatar by URL" option. I'm not sure when it was that the uploading feature broke but I would need to talk to Kradorex to fix it.

This should be fixed, if someone could give a test that'd be great.

I tried changing my avatar by uploading a 150x150 (the same size as my current one) Jpeg, and got this:


An Error Has Occurred!
The attachments upload directory is not writable. Your attachment or avatar cannot be saved.

Ah, found the root of the problem and did a test myself, seems to be functioning now. I was looking at the attachments section, rather than avatars section, many apologies for that. Seems to be correctly functioning now, if someone could do one more test?

I think Krad had to reset something, causing a purge of all the uploaded avatars people were using.   I can only guess that, since the same thing happened to me.  I had no trouble uploading a new one though and it seemed to work just fine.

Strange, I can still see everyone's avatars.

I think the ones that lost them may have reuploaded by now.  I'm just guessing, though.   *shrugs*
