I can't seem to upload a profile picture it doesn't show up on the screen ? Iv'e tried reloading the page and emptying cache but still no joy.
There's a little blank box showing it's there but no image. Perhaps others can see it and it's only hidden to me ?
Maybe it's a wicked trick of the Magician card I'm painting !

Welcome :cool:

 Your pic isn't visible to me either.  It says automatic resizing but that may not work so try a smaller image?

Try resizing it closer to the size it will appear on screen.

I've been having the same problem - tried yesterday to upload the same avatar I've always had on AT.  As it's within the (smaller) limits there, it obviously should fit here.  But it doesn't show up either.   Tried a few times, had the same result as clandestinezen shows now.  Then I gave up and deleted it.

I have been taken to task for not sorting out the avatar problem that a handful of users are experiencing.

Please understand that I rent the board software. I have no access to how it works.

As only two or three people are having such a problem, I have to assume it is not a system wide issue, but one arising from the individual's computer setup or the type of file they are trying to upload as an avatar. JPG files, do have a header structure in addition to the picture information. This can become corrupted in some way. I cannot sort out individual users problems which are related to their computer system or files.

Please note :

Avatars can be at most 128 pixels wide.
Avatar files cannot exceed 15000 bytes.

I do not know if the system can enlarge avatar files to fit, though I understand it can reduce them to fit.

Users experiencing a problem with a particular file should try using another avatar file. Avatar pictures from one bulletin board may not necessarily work on this system.

I am also not sure if the system will allow the use of gif files as avatar images.

Jpg file definitely work. Convert your gif file to a jpg.
