It’s been broken for ages now…
I’m told that if you upload an image with a different file extension than the one you previously uploaded, it will work. Though, I’m not sure how it works if you don’t have an avatar to begin with. I assume it should upload fine. Have you actually tried, or are you assuming it was still broken based on the forum posts regarding it?
aha! it’s fixed! I asked the question assuming it was still broken (as I have tried to upload one several times since joining the forum and it’s never worked)
I finally have an avatar after 350 posts!
(why am I stupidly excited about this? I need to get out more)
