    Can't change Avatar

    I have a pic I'm trying to upload from my Macbook, using Firefox. The pic is 8kb (well under the limit) and 250 pixels wide and high (also well under the limit) but I only get 'Upload Failed', even though it shows the pic on my settings page.

    Same results with Safari.

    What the heck?!?

    Come on! Breakdancing Jesus needs a break!

    I can't change mine either. I get a "403 Forbidden" page every time I try:

    Can you PLEASE fix this issue? Half the time I can't even respond to private messages too. I get the same "403 Forbidden" crap! I'm using Firefox 26.0 on Windows 7 Home Premium with all current software updates.

    I guess it worked! It gave me an 'upload fail' message, but there is Cockknocker! I see that the spec is back to 80x80 pixels. I resized it to 80x75 and while giving me the failure message, it actually worked.

    I fixed my issue too. I changed the name of the file from 'keep calm and just climb' to kccc. Sorry for thinking it was on your end I didn't realize that the apostrophe symbol would screw up the upload.
