Can't upload profile picture, but no error shown Quote | Reply

I finally decided I'd like to have an avatar, but I'm not having any success uploading it.

The image I'm trying to use is a .jpg, and it's well within the size limits (both in terms of KB and dimensions).

I can browse for it successfully on my laptop, but when I hit the 'Add Profile Picture' button the page refreshes after a few seconds and nothing much seems to have happened - no picture, and no error message. And the 'Select Profile Pictures' box still says I haven't added anything. I've tried in both IE and Firefox without success.

Am I missing something? Thanks!

It seems to be like that for everyone. I'll take a look and see if I can find out what went wrong.

When I hit the "upload attachment" button on a forum post, the file name erases and goes back to the blinking cursor.

It seems to work from this side... Could you give me more information? Which browser are you using? At what time did it happen?

It was shortly before I made that post on Saturday morning. I have IE8 and I was able to upload the pic on Sunday. I thought you had fixed it. Weird!

Yip, that is weird. A lot of weird bugs is popping up lately. Thanks for letting me know, I'll make a note of that one, just in case.

I played with it with every program i have, i can't get to work either. The type of file on dz..com is a .png file. Maybe .png files and .jpeg files don'ywork well and play well with others?

The preferred format for profile pictures are .jpg .
It should be no wider than 1000 pixels and no higher that 1000 pixels. The size limit is 500kb.

I was unable to upload avatar pics via IE7 this morning, including jpgs I had previously used as avatars and uploaded using IE7, but had no problem doing it via Safari.
