Your Avatar is screwed up ? Upload it again !

Hi folks :howdy: !

I really don't know where to post this, but the Community Forum seems a good place to me.

After a forum move, it happens that your avatar (i.e. your personal image, like mine is a Snowman) gets screwed up. I suspect some FTP operations without the binary setting... Anyway, here's a simple way to correct this :

- Click the "User CP" section.
- Click "Edit Avatar"
- Re-upload your Avatar (yes, the same :lol: )
- Click "Save Changes"

I hope it helps :thumbsup: !
- Frosty :)

But your one isn't screwed up :scratch: ?
Look at Col.Kurtz's one, this one *is* for sure :D !

It needs to be uploaded again, so the JPG/BMP/<whatever format> image is correctly displayed again. Nothing to do with my own tastes :p !

We should post here once per day until everybody uploaded his avatar again. Stickying it will make people not to read this thread anymore :rolleyes:

I'm, not sure, but it might not help just to upload it. Other people have have to clear their web cache as well, else the browser will continue to display the corrupted avatar from the cache.

also, when you upload a unbroken avatar, let me know and I will back it up...I have several saved already.

so... you say my avatar is NOT broken? Well, either you are drunk, or this computer is. Because here it looks like something from picassos drunken era...

I guess Frosty still has an uncorrupted one in his web cache. As I said, that can as well happen the other way around.

Indeed, you're right, and no I'm not drunk :lol: ! Krischan was right too : I just emptied the cache of my temporary internet files, and now it appears clearly that even Picasso couldn't have paint such a weird thing :bonk: !

My avatar is on my local computer. Whenever it's scrambled, I upload it again on the forum from my own computer.

My avatar is also on MY computer, but in the military service, there is no room for MY computer :p
Anyway, hope you liked the original pic, since I'm the picasso who painted it :)
Must try to fix it somehow though, it bothers me too...

One of the happiest moments in my life was when the army called me and the doctors said I'm not fit enough for it. I swear I haven't cheated. Two years later I made a bicycle tour over the Alps :lol:

If you manage to bike over the alps, and are too weak for the army, something fishy is going on. What country is that? In the Swedish army, there is room for everyone! ;)
The whole thing sounds wierd to me, you must be more strange than the looks of your avatar, even though it isnt messed up (had to include some avatar-talk, just to not get too OT) :lol:

The year of my birth brought many children to the country I live in (the big one of those where people write "sch" instead of "sh" and where my avatar is a well-known comic strip figure), so the army had lots of potential recruits to select from. About 1/4 of my male classmates didn't have to go to the army.

I'm rather thin and I'm not that bad at sports relying on endurance. The medical check didn't include letting me run around the building for an hour or something like that, so they tested only the things I wasn't that good in.

At the end of the check I was directed to a big desk with three seriously looking people sitting behind, the national flag hanging behind then. I was told to take place on a small chair and before I could prepare for the situation, they asked me "You have been regarded as unfit for serving in the army. Are you surprised ?". "I don't know which conditions it depends on, so I cannot answer your question," I replied. It seems it was a wise answer. Five minutes later I had left the building, jumping for joy :clap:

Answering them like that made you seem like you were 25+ goddamnit ;)
And also, what freaking country is that? Only country that both has wierd comic figures AND write 'sch' everywhere is the beloved Germany. Am I totally wrong now? :lol:

Yeah, I've done the re-upload several times in the recent past; it seems the forums software nowadays seems to mess up the Avatars all the time.

Except that when I tried to re-upload yesterday it complained about the filesize being too large... apparently they changed something...

You are right. It seems that it's time to admit that I'm from Germany, being 37 years old.
was quite a time ago then, since you tried out for military service ;)
its not wrong being from germany though, hell, its a good language, I like it myself.
Only thing is, that many german guys have created bad feelings about germans online :)
Quite a confession though, not every day people do those :D
