Something like 40 consecutive tries just now, and no result. I guess that kills my 'time of day' theory.

Tried it on a lark after getting up this morning, and it worked the first time. Is there a minimum time limit on changing avatars? Something like no more than once per 24 hours?

If this bothers you guys so much.... just do it like this:

1. Vist http://www.imagehost.org/.

2. Upload the image.

3. Obtain the direct link by clicking on the little button under the "Direct Link" heading.

4. Open your Avatar Control in UserCP.

5. Paste the link into the URL blank.


6. Click Save Changes.


Was that so hard?

Seriously. Try it out, we all know how it works, but it's not working.

Maybe it's a link change error? Perhaps upload a different image with the same file name as the old avatar? Well, probably not,.. but then again, gremlins do tend to have that effect at times.

I'm thinking this (and the other thread count related errors) are indications of something more fundamentally wrong with the current server(s) and/or forum's configuration and/or permissions. I can't change avatars via the User CP or Mod CP -- using URLs (to various servers) or via direct uploads. I've used the same methods on other forums running the same software and had no issues...

We didn't have these problems before the recent server load issues prompted tweaks (settings have been changed and things have been moved); unfortunately, without knowing exactly what has changed, it's impossible to suggest why we now have the current problems .

At a guess I would say it isn't the load balancing that Mb81 thought it might have been, as I assume he would have done something to fix it given his post; and yet we still have issues. Given he is the only one with administrative access to the forum server; we'll just have to wait for him to work out what is wrong. Might take a while though; like most administrators he is a very busy person ~

*cough* My instructions suck. (Verbs must agree in number with the subject.)


But really, it worked before.

Maybe this will help Mb81:
Spoiler:


I'm sure the image works; I pasted the link into a browser window.

Huh, I can't seem to change my avatar anymore either. I've tried direct linking and uploading and nothing works.

Maybe I'll have better luck tomorrow with this shite.

So nothing can be done then, as I'm still not having any luck this end? Maybe you could make a temp account and try to upload an avatar as a regular user or someone of a different access level...
____________________
Edit: OK, if Mb81 hasn't done anything in the last few minutes, I think I've narrowed the problem down. I've just performed a quick cross-network test using my other Internet connection. One of my connections (this one) is behind a transparent proxy (and like many others behind such proxies, I can't change it). The other connection (which just worked when I tested it) isn't behind a proxy of any sort. Both are pretty much identical in all other respects and I'm using the same account and time of day to do the test.

So whatever is happening, only happens when going via proxy. I'm guessing the fact it is transparent is less of an issue, except you can't turn it off when it is. Given the recent flood attacks were launched from proxies, I'm guessing whatever defense has been put into place is causing these knock on effects. Any comments?
