People in Chat probably saw this coming but I can't change my avatar at all for some reason. No link I've tried works and uploading any from my laptop won't work since I'm not a subscriber. Flickr images are a no go too. Any ideas on how to sort it?

Tried a flickr link again and it came up with: 'Could not save the URL image specified'.

Oh well, facebook pic it is then.

I had exactly the same problem when the board first changed to its current version. After everybody explained several times in painstaking detail why it was my fault, I eventually found a solution: I chose to keep grey-head-guy as my avatar Posted Image

I use Photobucket and it works fine. Sometimes sites like Flickr use a strange URL that doesn't link directly to the image, but as long as your URL ends in the file type (.jpg, .gif, .png etc.) there shouldn't be a problem.

Nope, nothing's working at all. Flickr still won't work, Photobucket won't work and any random image from Google won't work either even if it ends in JPEG.

Thanks though.

I think you're allowed to use grown-up swear words now Adam.

(If you're able, pop into chat - I doubt I can fix your problem, but I can at least commiserate in real time)

Too fucking right I can shitting swear! One of my mates has taken to saying 'poopy' and it seems to be being slowly engrained into my brain...

Damn, missed my chance to go in chat but a good ol' dose of John Constantine seems to have fixed it. Or it's the only image that works... whatever, I'm not complaining!
