Today I have decided to change my avatar. Unfortunately something doesn't work and I cannot upload any picture. I vae tried many different sizes (800x800, 80x80, 64x64, 160x160) and different image formats (jpg, png, gif). Can anybody help me?

I have found that actually only way is to use option "I have my own pic:" and use external url.

Yes, something is keeping the direct upload feature from working.  The best workaround is to upload it to the gallery here, preferably to your personal gallery, then view the image and use it's URL - or any external host you prefer is also fine.

As far as I know, all gallery uploads do appear there.

If that is to be avoided, an external image host, or maybe a file attachment here, would work.  Using attachments gets tricky as there are permissions associated with viewing them which means people not logged in may not b able to see the avatar.

Eventually we will need to upgrade to better and more modern forum software, and hopefully that will fix this, and many other issues with the site!
