    Default Problems with Profile Picture

    I am not able to change my profile picture.

    My picture isn't too large, yet I am getting the message "Unable to save image".

    Hiya Adventure,

    Escape has just reported a similar issue with uploading an attachment, we're currently looking into it. Maybe these things are connected and have to do with the move of the servers that I've announced here. That's just a wild guess on my part though. We'll keep you updated as soon as we know more, thank you for your patience

    Yes, I read the announcement. I hope it can be sorted out soon, whatever the cause is. Much success with it! I will be patient.

    I get an error message, too, when I try to upload an attachment. It seems that no attachments, profile pics, photos etc. can be uploaded at the time being.
    I have informed GamersHood who will look into this problem, as I think it will involve server settings and such.

    UPDATE:
    The problem concerning uploading images should be fixed now. It was indeed a result of the server move.
    Please let us know if anything still doesn't work for you, or if you find any other "bugs", thank you

    Uhm my post disappeared. And yes I am sure it was submitted, because i saw it at the forum index. (That was before the server went down).

    Anyway.. That was a quick Fix! Thank you very much Moderators and Admin.

    Only..
    Before the server went down I successfully uploaded a new PP, but when I checked my profile after the forums were back online, it appears I don't have a visible PP. When I right click where it says "adventure profile picture" and choose "view image" I am directed to this page:
    http://www.gamershood.com/forum/cust...pic2035_19.gif
    I am not a game page.

    Oh, you're not a game page? Hmmm, okay, we'll have to change this info about you in our databases

    Sorry for the still ongoing issues with the PP, they will be taken care of asap

    No worries. I just uploaded the pp again and it's fine now.
    I just wanted to report it in case there were other oddities with uploading picture.

    Thanks for the compliment!

    Yes, I think that's correct. I uploaded the picture just a minute before the forums went down.

    BTW I think I now finally know why PPs are always a little reduced in their quality, also when they are not automatically re-sized. For some reason they are changed into a .gif picture when you upload a PP, however all my PPs are .jpeg images. Not sure if this can be the reason, but this would explain it to me. I wondered about it for a long time.

    It is a very nice picture

    Hmmm, if I check its properties it says
    profilepic2035_20.gif
    BUT for filetype it says: JPEG image

    And if I right click and want to save it, it saves as JPEG

    That's server logics, you know?
