  • I have been having the same issue, for months! I can't change my avatar or upload any pics. It looks like it is going to upload the pics and after 2 hours, still not uploaded. I just gave up.

  • Sometimes, it just Freezes for some reason- It has happened to me before and i have just waited a while & it usually works- I would just let it sit & try again in the morning- (oh, it is morning! LOL) In a few hours it should work!

  • I looked around and all the issues I found were linked to changes being made on the site and were fixed. I can't say this has anything to do with the recent upgrade but if it isn't working in the morning you should report it using the contact us link at the bottom of the page.

  • I've had problems in the past. It is super slow when it comes to uploading profile pics, but isn't in groups; I can't figure that out. Anyway, when on picture doesn't upload, I always try another and that usually does the trick.
