    Avatar Upload Problem

    Hi Everyone!

    I'm trying to change my avatar and I keep getting error messages. When I try to upload from the computer I get "Unable to Upload File." (It's at the size requirement.) When I try to upload from the internet it says "Upload failed due to failure writing temporary file." (Uploading from Photobucket.)

    Is there something the Mods can or on their end or is there something I need to do from my end?

    Thanks!

    3 things that you should check, file size and dimensions, file type, and correct URL.

    -Make sure the file isn't larger (in KB or MB) and width and height in pixels.
    -Make sure that you are uploading a jpg or gif, other files types most likely won't work.
    -Make sure that your URL is the actual link to your image, and not a page displaying it. You can tell by the URL, if it doesn't end in .jpg or .gif, then it won't work.

    seems to be a site error, I just tried using a file I have used in the best and got an "unable to save image" message

    I did all those (I stated in the message). I think its a site error.

    Is there something Lou has to do?
