My avatar vanished

Post by Wolf Goddess »

My avatar has vanished. I can't put it back. I am getting a "invalid URL" message. I can't reset it or reload it. :(

As far as I know, you can't actually upload an avatar to these boards. You have to upload it somewhere else, e.g. a photo-sharing site like Photobucket, and then add the link in the "edit avatar" place in your User Control Panel. Where your avatar used to be in your posts there is still an avatar-sized square showing, with the small symbol that indicates a missing image. So it looks like there is a problem with the place where you originally uploaded the image. Maybe the image has been deleted, or the settings changed, or your account with the site has expired, or the site has closed down. If you can't sort out the problem you could try uploading it somewhere else and linking to the new url.

Thanks, Skannie: It's been so long since I first uploaded my avatar that I forgot the steps to do it. :oops:
