Need an other favor
« on: March 06, 2006, 12:49:54 AM »
Can you guys upload some of your personal avatars to www.avatar-gallery.com and let me know if it uploads and displays in the new avatars page correctly. Thank you in advance. There may be some scooby snacks involved. ;)

I tried to upload the Texas flag I used to use, but I got the message:

 Sorry could not upload avatar, please review our upload policies

My filename was tx_flag_60.jpg, (plus a path to the place on my machine), it is 2kb in size.
I'm not sure how this breaks the policies.

I tried again and it still didn't work.  (Same error message).
I tried to give both the pathname on my machine, as well as an http link, no luck for either.

'Mark Kness' (without the quote).  There is a space in it, which conceivably is problematic.

Yes that was the problem, but I fixed it. It can handle spaces now.

It still isn't working for me.  

BTW - After I tried specifying the file via http link, the text to the right of the 'Submit Avatar' button changed to something like 'application/octet-stream' or such.  (I didn't write it down).  Don't know if that is a clue.

Don't use the http, just use the browsw button to navigate to it. I'm surprised this isn't working. Its worked for others. hmmm...

I just tried uploading it, leaving the user name blank, and it claimed to work.
Then, I tried again, giving my correct username as 'Mark Kness' (no quotes), and it gripes.

So the username must be the problem somehow?
