Tried to change my Avatar today and had no end of problems. I was using a Mac just in case that makes a difference. I went into my account and chose a picture, uploaded it but of course it was on its side. I changed the picture and uploaded it again but no better. Then I took another picture and tried to upload that but all I could see was the first photo I uploaded. Didn't seem to matter what I tried, including deleting the current avatar, I couldn't replace the first photo I successfully uploaded. In the end I just pressed the submit button but then of course find the photo has to be 'approved'. I will be quite happy with the photo that is waiting for approval if somebody will put it up the right way.

Tried again tonight but although I now have no Avatar showing the old photo is still there when I try to upload a new one and I can't seem to overwrite it 😟😟😟

Though I see the old avatar I thought I had deleted is back 😊 Thank you to whoever is responsible for that, I'll have another go at changing it 😊

I like your old Avatar. Kindly uncle Nige. All my photos make me look like a failed criminal.

Thank you SOD 😊 I was changing it in response to a comment that on meeting me in person I wasn’t recognisable as the person in my photo 😀 My current photo is half a photo of two people and I do have a peculiar smile on my face. It is really weird that you describe me as ‘ cuddly uncle nige’ as that is what family call me 😳

If you can only fool some of the people some of the time then stick with it! What’s more I too think that you look like a kindly old gent. You will note that I hide behind the avatar of my old mate ( now,sadly, deceased but recently replaced by a miniature version with very sharp little teeth and an amazing turn of speed! When I can get her to stay still for long enough I will upgrade our presence.)

Hopefully managed to upgrade my image to "intelligent looking gent without a daft grin" though I think existing photo is more like me and 'intelligent looking is a big ask

Hi Nige,

The problem is that every time you upload an avatar it awaits moderation.

That means your avatar goes blank.

Your reaction has been to keep uploading avatars... but we can only approve whatever the 'current' upload... so next time you want a change, just upload the one and wait..

I would put up a picture of myself if i could find a camera that doesn't turn to stone when i look at it ! Oh well i guess for now (and fortunately for all the forum users) it will have to remain a picture of Dick johnson and his mighty 351 cleveland powered XD ford falcon (tru blu ) dropping off into forest elbow at mt panorama ( bathurst ) race track .

Crikey - will the real Nige please stand up?

Which picture of you do you want? It seems to swap back and forth every few hours?

When changing, just upload and wait DO NOT upload a new one until it's either changed or been rejected.

Not sure if its the moderators or the system that's getting confused...

You'll have to upload it via your profile, Nige.

I'm unlikely to see it straight away so just upload that picture and then do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING untila mod approves the new image.

Patience is a virtue!

We have another member who keeps uploading avatars that are about the size of a small ant - I hope he's reading this and will try a larger image...

Tis I, I think.

I used to have a perfectly good avatar but tried to update to a picture of my latest successful model completion as I have done several times in the past.

Unfortunately I'm having more success with machining than updating my picture so I have decided to stick with the small ant for now and let the matter rest for a day or 2.

Ok, I have followed the instructions BUT when I choose a different file and upload it the only file that appears is the existing one complete with the box to choose size crop etc. The new file doesn't appear at all. 😟

I'm sure his latest one isn't the same as the 'last' one.

I have learned a lesson Neil; As my avatar doesn't seem to change whatever I do I will take it as some sort of 'omen' and I'll stick with the avatar I have. Cuddly Uncle Nige it is 😀😀
