Profile Pic Problem
« on: April 13, 2011, 12:32:54 PM »
For some reason, every time I try to change my profile pic, all that shows up is the white box and red X. This even happens with pics I have used in the last (so it has nothing to do with the pic itself being too large or anything).

Help?

The first thing that came to mind was the sizing of the picture being used. I see you have a profile pic up now...is that smaller than the ones that didn't work?

you know, I have recently had the same problem. I tried using a picture of myself that was taken with my digital camera. I haven't checked the size of my picture, although I can't imagine how the size would have changed from the last time you used your pic, Exile. Weird.

Yeah, it has nothing to do with the size of the pics because I tried using pics I have used before.

You're assuming there has been no change in the size of the files that are allowed here...which I believe should be true. So what is different about the pics that you can get to work versus those you can't?

I have no idea. I will try to upload a profile pic that I have used before, and it won't work. Then I'll choose another, and the same thing. Then I'll try a third, and that one will work.

Compare the sizes of those files and the file types (extensions) to begin looking for differences.

I should have added source of the picture as well, so I'm doing that now.
