Unable to upload an avatar

JambalayaJambalaya Lugasch the *Friendly* Half-GiantRegistered User regular
Hey, I've been unable to upload *any* image file from my computer to the forum for an avatar, sig, whatever. It keeps telling me that the filetype isn't supported, even though I'm trying to upload jpegs... I've resized them to be 80*80, made sure they're below the size limit, etc. Any insight into this? It's not the end of the world but it does seem a bit strange...

    Same, size and file size doesn't seem to matter.

    I changed my avatar just a week ago so this must be a recent problem

    Yeah, this apparently didn't start happening until last night

    FortyTwo tried to change his and couldn't

    Half an hour later I tried to change mine while looking at the nostalgia thread and couldn't either

    I'm having the same issue. I tried both a gif and a jpg version of my avatar, 80 x 80, but I'm just getting a broken image icon.

    Broken for me, too. Tried to change it, but it didn't work. Then I tried to use the same picture I had before, and it still didn't work.

    Hi PA denizens,

    For this particular sub forum and the threads within it, could you attempt to refrain from gratuitous "me too" posts, when a fixed issue works for you now? They bump the thread and then I have to go and look at it again. If someone has already reported the problem fixed, and it is fixed for you too, simply appreciate that the problem is solved and move along. This would please me greatly.

    It would be nice if similar common sense could be employed in the opposite scenario where a bug is open and everything within you is crying out to post "also broken for me!". Please don't :(

    Gracias.
    Please follow the guidelines for the forums. It'll get fixed when it get fixed. It's logged in the forum and will be addressed in time. It's obviously affecting all people trying to add a new avatar so we don't need every new user and half the forum confirming the issue.

    Thanks.

    A lot of people are having the problem... and they're aware of the issue.

    There is a thread for it in the Vanilla Forum Comments and Bugs Section.

    Just follow that one. I'd imagine they'll get to it as soon as possible.

    Nope, mine still seems to be un-loadable. :-(

    Welcome to Miami Beach, ladies and gentlemen. Everything is cheaper than it looks.

    Please take my advice.

    Mine was from the old version and so it looked terrible and pixelated so I went to upload a higher res version and I ran into this problem.
