Hello  - I have been trying to change my avatar in my profile and am unable to do this.  I try to attach my personal picture uploaded off my computer's directory and I get this message "Attaching upload directory is not writable; attachment or avatar cannot be saved."  I have done this before but it will not attach this time.  Please offer any suggestion.  Thank you.  Yellowshirt

Hey Yellowshirt. Try saving the pic to your desktop and load it up from there. If that doesn't work try a different pic just to test it out.

Let me know how it goes my brother from another mother.  :popcorn

You can also use your photobucket account to host the avatar.    There is a command on the profile for that.

Another trick is to use the change pic option but do not load a pic and hit save. It clears the existing pic/file out of there. Sometimes this is the only thing that works.
