Re: How do I change my Avatar?

Thu Mar 15, 2012 8:04 am

Hi everyone,

I have just been looking through my profile details and thought I would change my Avatar as displayed to the left of posts in the forums.

However that facility seems to be disabled?

Is there a requirement for a certain number of posts before this can be done or is it just that the forums can't support any more storage for avatars?

Any help gratefully received.

Sorry, uploads disabled! Storage location does not exist or is not writable. Please contact a forum Admin.


Looks like they forgot to do that when the server was moved!

Perhaps either Admin or one of the Mods on here could help out with this one?

They're gong to change the forum software soon, so I would wait until they've done that.

I think you need to contact Pete at Mythic Beasts for this - but as Chromatix says you could just wait for the new forum

Thanks... I hadn't realised that a Forum change was on the way, so I will just wait for that, and then see what it contains.

Thanks everyone. Gravitar looks promising and I'll look into that.

I also didn't know a change of forum software was in the offing.

I'll see what I can do.

Well as you can see gravatar worked perfectly for me. It only takes a few minutes and is completely free. This also means that my avatar (thats the saint of killers in case you were wondering) should now show up automatically on most forums.

Thanks for the tip guys I had no idea that gravatar existed.

gravatar has never worked for me. it.simply.doesnt.work!

I have filled in my details and such, got the e-mail, responded to the e-mail, and then gravatar pretends it doesn't know me, even though it has sent me an e-mail!

The username (which gravatar said was fine) I set isn't recognized as "in use".

Very frustrating! Ill just wait for the new forum, and hope uploading an avatar will work then.

A friend put an incorrect link in her tweet about her OH drinks web site.

As soon as I saw it I thought of this thread.

Note my avatar is Significantly better than real life .
