I have tried several times in the past month or so to change my avatar. I get all the way to save changes and and it says the upload failed. The photos I've tried are not large, 115KB and smaller. When I go to the user control panel and select "edit avatar", it shows the new one, but that is as far as it goes.
Figures!!!!! As soon as I posted this it changed.
Karma is like this: If we set causes in motion the effects come back to us.
