    The issue is that urls must be http, not https. Remove the s, and you should be fine. Also, make sure it's the .png or whatever format the avatar is in url, not just the general link.

    Now it worked thanks. <3 LOL it's too big got to make it smaller. Now it keeps saying the format is wrong even when I remove the 's' I give up. Well I know I don't need an avatar but I would like one and if anyone knows how to resolve this problem do tell. I'll keep trying I guess?

    I'm now using that URL: http://i.imgur.com/xBwZAmC.jpg

    The pixels are 100x100 and I took out the 's' as you can see but it keeps telling me it's the wrong format. I don't want an ugly, 'This image is gone,' as my avatar forever.

    I'm sorry, I'm not sure what the problem is. I have had no problem using it as my avatar. I pasted that exact URL into the custom avatar spot and gave me no error messages.

    Great. Well it worked the first time and won't work anymore. Do I have to get rid of my old avatar before I have a new one maybe? Aw, now I'm gonna be sad the entire time I use this website.

    Yes, you cannot have two avatars at once. Are you trying to put the new URL without removing the old one? What exactly does it say in your custom avatar URL space when you get the error message?

    Yes, I was trying to use a new URL without removing the old one I think. And the custom avatar field is cut off on my screen so I can't see what I'm entering. The message I get is, "You are not using the correct format."

    I really don't want to create another on-line account. I just have YouTube. I'm not wanting to create a photobucket (or the "image" one) account just to upload my PokéTriforce image ( https://yt3.ggpht.com/-hc94baz1KkY/A...ffff/photo.jpg ). Unfortunately, the address is too long; so it ends with "c0xffffff/ph" (7 symbols shy). Is there some other way?

    Dear mods who helped,

    I figured out the problem with the custom avatar. I just had to shrink my screen and now all fields like display right. Thank you for trying to help a computer illiterate girl. :)

    Default Avatar bug

    So its letting me have my avatar but every once and a while it just doesnt display and ive noticed it happening to others in the forum as well. I'm curious if something about the formatting was changed so that certain avatars are no longer supported because its not happening to everyone and i can fix it by re entering my avatars URL and the saving the changes but it keeps happening again after a while.

    Its not a huge issue just thought i would mention it to see if its something that actually requires attention or if its just an issue on my end.

    It's an imgur issue. See here and here for details.

    That does not fix it. All that does is make it show up for you, because your image is now in your cache, so it does not have to request it from imgur (which has blocked requests from this forum). Nobody else will see your avatar. If you clear your cache, it will no longer show up for you.

    Photobucket. You can tell by right-clicking the image, selecting "open image in a new tab" and then reading the address

    My first guess would be the spaces in the name. Try renaming it to "thurulian_the_conquerer".

    My second guess would be excessive number of characters - which in this case you could address by changing the name to something like "avatar".

    So my avatar isn't showing anymore, and I can't figure out how to change it. I've gone to "settings" but the only section in "Miscellaneous" is "Attachment" and it just says I have no attachments. I can't figure out where to set my avatar anymore, I tried every section of the Settings page :S What am I missing?

    You'll want Settings > General Settings > Bottom of the Page. And you'll also need to host it somewhere other than imgur, in case you hadn't heard, because it's against their TOS to put avatars on there (which is why they've blocked GitP).

    Thanks! For some reason I thought it was supposed to be under "Miscellaneous" in the left bar, and I guess I missed that section when I went through the rest of the pages. Should be fixed now, hopefully! (I did know about imgur, but thanks for mentioning it!)

    Go to "Settings" on the top right of every page of the forums (between "My Profile" and "Log Out").

    In the settings page, there will be a set of three sidebars: "My Messages" at the top, "My Subscriptions" in the middle, and "My Settings" at the bottom. In the My Settings sidebar, click the General Settings under the subsection "My Account". Scroll all the way to the bottom for the avatar options.

    So...is that TinyURL site (or whatever it is) part of the "imgur" thing? Last Friday, my avatar was just fine. When did this whole issue start? Does anyone think we'll ever be getting our avatars back? Like I've mentioned previously, I don't like having many on-line accounts (as I'm more of an off-line person).

    It's tinypic (not tinyurl) and it's part of photobucket (not imgur). Unfortunately it looks like photobucket has kicked the bucket; the website is unreachable as far as I can tell.

    Not quite. I can still get to my old free account. There is an ominous warning that my account will change on January 15 of 2019 though...

    It says to not have https. Try it with just http instead.

    Edit: Except imgur doesn't work here anymore. The site has blocked hotlinking, at least to here. It will not display for anyone who doesn't have the image cashed elsewhere.
