    Avatar, signature banner and PM attachment image upload has been broken since January. I don't have an ETA for a fix, I'm afraid.

    Some folks are reporting a minor glitch with uploading avatars, and a workaround has been developed:

    If your last avatar was a JPG, upload a PNG.
    If your last avatar was a PNG, upload a JPG.

    (Basically, you have to alternate between formats.)

    Before resorting to a different format, try a forced refresh -ctrl-F5 in Firefox and IE on Windows - as I suspect the issue is that the new file isn't being marked as new, and so your browser is going with the cached copy of the old file.
