    Go to pix.gbatemp.net, upload the image from from your computer, and use the first link it gives you in the URL part of the personal photo space.

    Oh, right, was thinking of the avatar one.

    Wait for an admin to fix the upload.

    There is no space to put the link...it just has the pic's vertical and horizontal spaces. Don't know what is up with that.

    Probably being lazy.
    EDIT: Nevermind, someone fixed it, at least on my end!

    Quick break out the champagne!

    EDIT: Not quite....it's allowing us to upload and reflects my changes as well in my control room, but viewing my profile yeilds the same exact image as I had before. Deh fudge...why you no werk photo?

    Is the OP having the same issues now as I am? Not in any way trying to hijack his thread, but I figured we seem to have the same issue, and if one of them is resolved then the other should be able to resolve it hopefully by the same or similar means.

    Perhaps what should be added at some point is an option to use an image hosted at pix.gbatemp.net or something for our personal photos in addition to the existing "upload from computer" option.
