Hi Madryn :wave:
Any hints on improving pricture quality?
The piccy needs to be a really good one to start with. When you start playing around, resizing etc etc the quality degrades. As a result, an OK picture to start with will lead to a slightly less than OK avatar in the end :shrug:
Avatars are not like photo albums so you may need to pick a close up picture that you can crop to allow some detail but do not expect to see the wedding ring on that lovely couples’ fingers :hug:

Having the same problem so I tried to just update my weather postcode and that didn’t stick either. I get an error at the top of the page reading “Unable to update Profile: The user name finally is in use.” I am running Nortons:|
Have a great day

Hi Finally :wave:
When you have made the changes that you desire do you click on the ‘Update Profile’ options at the base of the edit profile page?
This allows the changes to be made permanent :tup:
Thanks for the bump, I missed this one (of many, no doubt) :metal:

For those using Norton Identity Safe – You need to turn it off to update your profile, otherwise it fills in what ever you started with in your profile on your original log-in.November 21, 2008 at 5:24 am #323998

1. – The file is the correct size
2. – the format is right
3. – there is no illegal characters or spaces.
and yes, my picture is a .jpeg
I just don’t know, I think I’ll just give up for today and I just have to remain that special pictureless person. Oh….I so need a coffee right now.
Thanks for your help
I’m in the same boat – been trying for ages. Am on a Mac, but that shouldn’t matter. Do not have Norton. Ideas anyone?? :uhoh:February 18, 2009 at 10:15 am #324006
This might sound silly but when I had trouble at first putting on my avatar I wasn’t doing two things:
1. Click on ‘open’ when my pic came up on the window (and you won’t see your pic anywhere yet)
2. Remember to click on ‘update avatar’ on your edit profile page, down the bottom. You still won’t see a pic for a while , after a bit everything goes black and then after another little bit the page comes up properly and there’s your pic.
