    At the moment, I can not change my avatar to anything that isn't one of the default avatars. Attempts to upload or link to avatars I've used in the past just result in "image not found" showing up in my avatar spot. Seems as if something isn't pointing to the right spot after the avatar is supposedly updated.

    Though, right now, I've simply disabled my avatar and figured I'd fiddle with it in the morning.

    Yes, I know about the issue; you guys don't have to keep changing (and losing) your avatars to verify it. Hopefully I can get it fixed this afternoon.

    Your avatars have been fixed now.

    However, please note that future avatar changes could take up to an hour before they are displayed next to your posts. This will only occur through next week due to temporary server infrastructure changes I have enabled to prepare for E3.

    There are still some problems with it from what I'm experiencing. I've been trying to change my picture and it won't work weather uploading or linking.

    Having the same problems with my profile picture, I guess this is probably the reason why.

    Still not working for me either, also waited more than an hour.

    And I probably shouldn't have tried to re-upload it 5 times by now, lol. Sorry about that. :boggled:

    Profile pics will remain broken until next week. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Regarding avatars, I've made some more fixes to the hourly thing. It still probably won't work; we'll see.

    Looks like a general problem, i'm in the same situation here, but Jordan is working on it. Let's wait just a little longer. :tup:

    Just uploaded a new avatar and then found this thread when it didn't upload properly.

    Hope Jordan can get this fixed soon :tup:. I can't use my brand new avatar. Hence my User title. Sarcasm is your best weapon :sly:

    I did not know about the avatar issue until it was too late. Guess It'll have to stick for now :(
