I have had the same problem since the sight came back up. I contacted Jon A. and he tried to help but still doesn't work.

Not sure if this helps, but...

My "avatar" has this address:

http://www.landracing.com/forum/index.php?action=dlattach;attach=421;type=avatar

LVMAXX, the address of your avatar appears to be on your local computer:

http://c/Documents%20and%20Settings/Owner.MAXXNME/My%20Documents/My%20Pictures/Bad%20Bird.jpg

thundersalt, yours is on another website:

http://www.jasoncullmann.com/store/product.php?productid=16152

A "local" (i.e., on landracing.com) avatar is added on your "profile" page, "modify profile", "forum profile information", "upload" (LVMAXX) or "I have my own pic" (thundersalt).  Not sure why thundersalt's isn't working.  Upload it perhaps?

You need to replace the address you have for your avatar with

http://jasoncullmann.com/store/images/P/SKU_P_10020.jpg

which is...................

 

....................the address you have for your avatar is the web page that the image is located on not the image itself,

Sum,
I am having the same problem.
I removed the picture I had in my profile and now can't get one to load, not even the old one.
This is the message I get [ the attachments upload directory is not writable your attachment or avatar cannot be saved ].
Help,
Don

I have tried "I will upload my own pic " several times with differant size KB and MB pics with no success. So I tried "I have my own pic" off the web with a pic I found on  the internet some dude is selling and only get the box with the "x". I get the same error message as salt27 gets.

Me too.
I deleted my old one and when trying to upload, got the same messages.
I keep trying different things, but sometimes just don't "get" this computer thing.

MAXX, I don't know if there's a help page to assist in getting photos onto the little avatar thingie, but I'll look into it.  I've posted my own there a bunch of times -- and had no trouble once I learned that I had to use a photo from the internet.  I don't remember now if that detail has changed, so I'll give it a go and return with some data -- after I finish the first seventeen chores for this day.

Perhaps the Simple Machine Forums people might have some insight.

Okay, I've tried it, and sure enough, the whatchamacallit "is not writeable" -- which means to me that we can't put anything into the attachments upload directory.  Crap -- this means that I'll have to go to the SMF help site and see what they tell me.  And we've got company coming to the house for dinner, and I need to finish making the trifle (dessert) that I started this morning.  I'll get on it (the uploads directory, not the trifle).

I have a feeling that when JonA had to shut down the photo directories that maybe that is where they were stored.  If you want them up you will have to have them on the internet on a site that you can then give the URL address too.  I now have mine on my site.

They should also be posted in a square format where the height and width are the same or they will be distorted when shown here.

If you really want the picture posted and can't wait for Jon to fix this e-mail it to me and I'll put it on my site and then give you the address where it is located.  If you do this the picture you send me has to be tall enough that I can crop it square and still have your car/bike in the picture.  This can present a problem if there is not a lot of picture above and/or below your vehicle in the picture you would send me.

c ya,

Sum
