    Well they haven't yet, I've just tried it. I thought it was stopping uploading them from phones, but then I saw this thread, but it does say Upload from your computer, so I hope they haven't stopped us uploading from phones.

    I've just managed to change mine!

    I was getting the usual invalid message so tried something else.
    I uploaded my already resized (80 x 80) avi to postimage, chose "do not resize". Uploaded, copied the direct link to clipboard and pasted it into the bit that says url from another site, deleting the original http//www.

    And that worked!

    So now I have an Xmas avi :think:

    ETA, Photobucket seems to be absolute pants :( Use Postimage instead.

    Just tried Gill's idea from the post above, but it didn't work for me, perhaps because I use an iPad?

    I tried more than one address from my avatar image in Photobucket, but neither worked, :(







    Edit. It didn't work from Photobucket, but it DID work from postimage.com!


    Thanks for the tips, Gill!m:T
