Avatar- am I doing something wrong?

Asked by GloPro (8210 points ) March 15th, 2014 from iPhone

I tried to change my avatar and on the screen that lets you pick a photo you uploaded they all look like the one I most recently downloaded (my homage to Gene Simmons). There should be three different pics there. My responses all still show my old blue hair avatar, and apparently my home screen shows my new one, which I would prefer all around at the moment. What am I doing wrong here?

How many MB is the new picture? I couldn’t see anything else at first glance. Can we vote yes or no on the new avatar?

Chances are that you have done nothing wrong and this is a bug with the website. This same bug has been reported multiple times in the past.

Did you try to change it from your phone or on a computer? I see the ones changed on the phone had this issue.

[Mod says] I reset your avatars. Try to upload again.

GloPro's avatar

Hmm. Nope. I’ll have to use a computer. Thanks anyway!

Happened to me more than once, including this past week with my current upside down farce of an av.
I gave up giving a shit about it, just a pic after all.

This often happens on mobile devices. Definitely give it a shot on your computer.

Tah-dah!

Ugh go squish your boob in your armpit.

@Adirondackwannabe Who says it isn’t already?
I had to post an intentionally ugly face to rid myself of my duck face hand on my hip complex. This too, shall pass.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

The duck face I understand, but why the hip complex? Just mellow, we like you for you.

GloPro's avatar

This is a piece of me :-)

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

No, it isn’t. You’re not mean or ugly.

GloPro's avatar

Haha, true. I didn’t think it looked mean, just ugly. It’s refreshing to let yourself be ugly every once in awhile and not be afraid of it. I was kind of making fun of posing, I suppose.
I’ll see what else is in my bag of tricks now that I’ve figured out how to change my avatar.
