I have tried many different times to change my avatar photo since the new server, it lets me choose the photo and hit save, but nothing updates.

I've had the same problem, it just goes to whatever file was uploaded last with the same suffix (jpg, gif, etc). I was able to change by uploading my avatar offsite and using the 'link to' function.

I am having a problem with my avatar as well. I just registered and uploaded a JPG that is 142x176 and 10kb. My avatar just shows up as a broken image when I upload it. I didn't see a 'link to' function.

Avatar uploading is broken, period.

Use photobucket to upload the avatar you want, and link to it that way.

I tried to change my avatar many times, but nothing changes. I decided to click the "no avatar" function until I can post the new avatar. I tried to link the avatar from Potobucket but here is no option for that. How can I link the image to my profile? I find only "upload" and "use stock avatar" options on the profile edit page.

I know this is an old post but I was also having the same issue. I was able to change the avatar by changing the format of the picture to something different than the last one, i.e. current avatar was .jpg, reformatted new one to .png.
