Denver,

 

When you click on your name (just to the left of Profile), it will bring up a page called "About Denver Osborn".  On the right hand side of that page, you will see a section called "Images for Denver Osborn".  That is where you need to go to upload the images.  Then you can click on "Profile", go to "Avatars" and it will have your images there in "From Uploaded Images".

 

Suck up that coffee and give it one more try.  If I can figure it out, I know you can!!

I swear I'm neither blind nor crazy.  Attached is a view of the 'About me' page with boxes for drafts, tags and kudos only. 

 

Maybe this is a feature only available to customers with a valid support agreement--much like downloading patches.  :)

If I hadn't seen it, I never would have believed it.  I'm thinking this one needs to be reported to Kevin.  That's just not right!

Not knowing how else to get anyone's attention around here, I mentioned this in the "Issue Requiring Moderator Intervention" thread.  I'd certainly love to see some sort of explanation for this difference in privileges.

Denver - try it again - should be working now.

 

The only users who shouldn't be able to upload their own avatar (or any other images) are brand-new users - I'm not sure why your account wasn't updated correctly, but hopefully it will be working now.

 

And the reason for the two different "profile" links is that one (clicking on your name) allows you to view your profile, as another user would be able to (expect that other users won't see your full name or email address unless you've changed your security settings), and the other (clicking on the word "Profile") is where you go to update/modify your settings.  In the future I think they could be worded a bit differently to help make it more obvious - I'll put that on our list of future improvement opportunities.

Stephan, there is no "from the web" or "gone" under my profile - avatars settings. ??

 

-------

Profile  - Avatars - from the Web

 

insert any link with an transparent picture, prefered 36 x 64 pixel

 

Avatar --> gone

Kevin_Paul, looks like from what I am reading in various post that you may have to do a

global update of accounts. Some can see and some cannot see options to their accounts.

I can't see "From the Web" and other options that others are posting about. My account is

not new either.

Gone as in transparent or invisible.  Or as in kludge/workaround.

I take it this issue was never resolved. Bummer!!

To tell somebody that they are wrong is called criticism. To do so officially is called testing.

Re: Get rid of avatar??

Jump to solution

I can't seem to change the avatar either - no option to change image - image upload doesn't seem to allow me to upload an image either, and avatars are only shown from the default set.

 

Painful.

 

Cheers

Dave

Dave - I'm looking into this issue for you; I *think* I know what's causing it but want to try and determine what happened... I'll let you know when I have an update.

Dave - give it another try - you should be able to upload images and use them to change your avatar now.

 

Sorry for the inconvenience...
