I hate to sound like a n00b, but when I try and upload a new avator, it just tells me that its the wrong type - when I know its not. I tried a gif and a png but no joy. Is something wrong or is it just me?

Lol, sorry TK, Amphy's just always the first Admin that comes to mind. I wonder if it'll work today...

Hey wait! When I changed it using the Gallery's image, it worked! But it won't work when I upload my own image

EDIT: Here - I tried to upload an avator from my Photobucket account and this is what it said:

Screwed Up Avator Changer wrote:
<center>Could not write avatar file to local storage. Please contact the board administrator with this message

DEBUG MODE

Line : 167
File : usercp_avatar.php</center>


I hope that means something to you, TK, coz its Gobbledegook to me

Yeah it won't work for me either, something tells me that the size limit got screwed up, this came up when I tried to upload a 70x70 9KB Animated Avatar from my computer.
"The avatar must be less than 70 pixels wide and 70 pixels high" (I hope that's noticeable)

I'm guessing it means 70x70 is too big or something.

The Administrator's control that, and judging by the setting's, and the time we've had this phpbb board, I don't think they'll change it anytime soon. It takes bandwidth, (no matter how little), and can sometimes get annoying.

70x70 is actually quite good, some Admin's on other boards changed it to 50x50, so you should feel lucky. :P

(This is not backseat Moderating, I'm explaining how phpbb avatars work....right?)

I think it's something to do with Server Configs. The last avatar that was uploaded was on the 26th of September, yet no one has touched any of the forum files controlling avatars (apart from the header up there ^^^^) since the 6th of September when Amphy installed the Gender Mod.

It's like.. um... when you upload a file, it comes with a certain set of information (name of picture, filesize, dimensions) and that information comes in a specific format. For some reason, phpBB isn't recognising this information anymore and hence it generates an error.

It'll have to be the weekend before I get more time to look at this.

I've emailed Gamespy regarding this and I am waiting for their reply. Nothing can be done until then. I'll let you all know as soon as possible about the consequences of this.

Yeah...this just happened to me and I was about to say something but then I found this thread. (luckily I always look to see if something that I wanna ask has already been asked :wink: )

I hope it goes back to normal, 'cuz I'm wanna get rid of my Nightmare Sidney pic so I can put in a picture Jake (CO from Advance Wars: Dual Strike).
