the subject pretty much sums it up; i've tried to upload my own avatar (80x80px .png image) but for some reason it gets simply ignored and won't show.
is this another restriction due to the fact that i'm still doing time in newbie-jail?

EDIT: ok, now i just should have been released from newbie-jail but it still seems as if my avatar that i try to upload under 'profile' -> 'forum profile information' -> 'i will upload my own picture' + click on 'change profile' has no effect  Sad
any ideas?

EDIT2: also tried to specify an external url for my image which also seems to not work  Sad

Uploading avatars has been temporarily disabled, as that is a possibly exploitable security hole on the current forum software. I think you can still be Freddie Prinze Jr, though.

Same question answered 5 days ago: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=317837

OOOPS!  Shocked Sorry for double-posting then!

Must have overseen the thread from 5 days ago (the threads title is not giving much hints).

But interesting information tough, wouldn't have thought that code hidden in avatars would get executed...
Lets hope these holes will be fixed somewhen soon so avatar pics upload can be re-enabled even when its of course not the most important thing to have  Kiss
