    Common knowledge is the fact that the upload service for avatars and personal photos is completely broken. It has been since I joined (January), and was inevitably broken even before that if it already was when I joined. I was just wondering if there were any plans to fix or alter that service in the near future. I realize it is low priority, but how low priority could it been left broken for the better part of a year?

    I was just reminded and thought about how long its been.

    Just curious is all. I would also love the ability to log in and post on the mobile temp, but that's a different topic (a little below this one :3).

    I also would like it to be fixed, if probable. I can't change mine either....

    Heh, you hit the nail right on the head! [​IMG] I had a personal photo but I deleted it and planned to upload another. But I never did, because of the upload problem...

    I could change mine just fine, up until two weeks ago where I tried to upload another one and failed.

    A couple of days ago I tried to upload it again and it worked.

    Upload service just has a mind of it's own.

    Edit: and for your avatar, you should really use another website instead of pix.gbatemp.
    Not sure if it's been fixed now but last time I used it, images don't show for random parts of the day.

    Pretty much sums up my thoughts. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I just leave it up to luck.

    pix.gbatemp.net always works perfectly for me... assuming you're talking about the picture upload service, only thing is if you upload 2 different images with the same file name, the first one u uploaded with that name will be copied
