Do you get an error message when you try to change your avatar?

Asked by Dutchess_III (42474points) March 19th, 2017

I get this no matter what I try to upload.

Do you?

How many pictures do you have uploaded? You can only have 4. You have to delete one before uploading a new one. Can you try this and report back?

Dutchess_III's avatar

I know that @Stinley! I’ll delete the rest and see what happens.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Nope. No luck.

You’re trying to upload from a desktop and not a smart phone, right?

Dutchess_III's avatar

Yes. Let me try a different picture, one I know works. Or has.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Well, it must have been the picture I was trying to use.

I suspect a possibly transient server issue.

I now see you with two different avatars and even though I posted an answer here, I still see an option to follow your question. I had manually select the follow option instead of automatically getting the unfollow option after I posted my reply.

Edit: now your avatars have become uniform.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Huh. Damn transient servers. Next thing you know they’ll be wanting to use the bathroom too.

Brian1946's avatar

I just posted my first answer in another thread, and I got the “Stop Following” option, so perhaps you encountered a temporary server hiccup.

My guess is that now you’ll be able to change your avatar to any other avatar that meets the regular requirements.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Nope. It has to be that particular picture. It’s the wrong size or something.

Brian1946's avatar

Is the image either jpg, gif, or png, and under 2MB?

Dutchess_III's avatar

It’s JPG. When it’s too big it specifically tells me that.

Why would I want to change my avatar? It’s a perfect avatar.

ragingloli's avatar

Works fine for me.
