@CherryHugs,

Just by coincidence, I changed my avatar this morning.  I didn't have any problems.

From your description, it sounds like there was some kind of data corruption when it "messed up" and as a result you might need to clear all cookies/cache/website data, quit the browser, and relaunch it.

Then go to your profile image album, select an image, under "image options" choose  "Use Image as Avatar."

I hope that helps! Lots of tech bugs on this site, and I'm sorry you encountered one of those critters!😉🌻

Several months ago I tried for quite a while to change my profile picture....after many, many attempts I finally got the job done.  I don't know what the problem was as I have changed the photo before.

@CherryHugs,

1 -- Do you have any luck if you go to "Edit my preferences" and choose "Avatars" and try to add one there, perhaps the default "silhouette"?

2 -- Is this problem the same no matter what image you try to use as your avatar?

3 -- Would you mind describing exactly what happens when you try to change/add your avatar (that might give us good clues)?

Sorry for all the questions!🙃😊  If I can't find the pesky bug causing this, maybe one of our fellow sleuths here will have a great answer.🕵️‍♀️

Woman Happy I so appreciate you trying to help me with this.

 

I tried the number 1 on the list.

 This is what I get :

 

These are your approved images. If you don't see any images, it means that you don't yet have any images that have been approved. If necessary, go to your My Images page (the link is on your profile page) and upload a new image. After you upload an image, you must wait until it has been approved by a moderator before you can use it as your avatar.

 

I only have a Christmas one there.

 

 

Here  is what I usually do and til now has always worked:

 

I click on Profile, and it always took me to a place to change avatar. Now it wont do anything when I click there.  When there, I would just click on change and pick one saved on my laptop.

 

If you or anyone has any advice plz let me know lol.

 

Thank you! 🕵️‍♀️

Fabulous!  You're welcome!  We did it as a team! 🕵️‍♀️
A peculiar file error was causing your avatar to appear as a wee, tiny dot and I'm guessing it needed a reset of sorts.  The link from your avatar to your profile was working (when we click/tap a poster's avatar it's supposed to take us to their profile, and yours did), but the image was distorted.  I am so glad you resolved it -- great job, @CherryHugs😊
