    I know and understand that the recent Lounge update was merely a plea for me to change my image.
    I tried 3-Nov 6:15 EST uploading a new image.
    The file name "w:\Chris_GEDC1894_Head (Small).JPG"
    The file attributes 98x120 (pixels).
    The file size 13KB.
    Am I missing something?
    I seem to be well within the limits of 150x150, 50kB

    FWIW I'll try attaching the same image to this post.
    P.S. This is not a poll!

    The picture shown in posts is your Avatar.
    The picture shown in your profile is your Personal Photo.
    So if you want to update the picture shown in posts, you need to go to Settings > Profile > Change your avatar.

    I was trying to upload a different version of my avatar yesterday - just better resolution, I'm hanging on to Krtek! - and got the same error message.
    (I meant to report it and forgot.)

    I think there is an issue with the upload mechanism since the upgrade.

    (The full title of this thread is '[highlight='blue']Your Personal Photo The upload failed. Please notify an administrato[/highlight]' - the sub-title doesn't make itself as apparent as it could, particularly when replying...)


    (Chris - mine is not a poll either, it's Czech.)

    Thanks, Hans.
    "Uploaded avatars from your computer must be no larger than 50 KB. "
    Same sort of problem.
    But I see Leif's response.


    P.S. I find that having "your Profile" and "settings, Profile" a tad confusing, but it has to be about 3,789 on the list-of-things-to-worry about

    OK, he's cute (but you never know...).

    I agree, as it is the optional "Thread description", sub-title, is of little use now, not visible in thread view etc.

    Thanks, Leif, for the confirmation on uploads.

    If this is a reference to my choice of text, I apologize.
    I wanted the topic to reflect a major issue, and the sub-title to describe a specific issue within the major.
    As you saw, the length restriction on the sub-title made it look as if I was hunting for an Italian superior.

    (Chris ... it's Czech.)
    That's an a-polling joke.

    It wasn't meant as a criticism of your [s]sub-plot[/s] sub-title, but as Argus noted, the loss of the text when replying means it is easily overlooked [s]

    Thanks, Argus.
    I can't remember the old old lounge now, let alone the old new lounge.
    I thought that subtitles were a good idea, as they let posters categorize threads,
    For example, I anticipate a series of comments on "Uploading your photo", and a subset of those might be related to the actual Upload process (my case) while other subsets might relate to space limitations, image quality etc, and each subset could have a sub-title to assist those who use the search function to visually filter in the the threads most likely to satisfy.

    So, well then, is one of us going to lodge this as a suggestion?

    For some obscure reason, the upload to Avatar, which the lounge reported as not working, appears to have worked after all.
    The upload to Personal Photo is still wonky, AFAICS.

    This should now be fixed! I verified that it's possible to upload the attached avatar you provided. I hope you don't mind the temporary impersonation.

    Chris,
    Looks like Dan corrected the problem for you?
    Just a note:
    Did the conversion to the new Lounge version\format really age you THAT much?
    I won't even attempt to update mine!

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Thanks Dan.
    I am now confused.
    The Avatar seems to have uploaded itself, and when I went to change my Picture, it too was already in place. I tried uploading it anyway and that seemed to work. It seems that the uploads are taking place even tho' the software says the upload failed.

    No, I'll stay forever young. In my profile picture anyway!

    I think Dan went in your profile on your behalf and changed things for you.
    Hence his comment:

    No, the only impersonation I did was uploading Chris's avatar to my own account to make sure the error wasn't specifically related to the file! (It wasn't.)
