Hi comrades and friends;

I am new to this site and I am trying to get myself an avatarpicture up with my nickname...

Have been on "Account settings" and "Edit avatar", but it seems that it is not any option for uploading a picture from your own computer.

Is that impossible?

If so, the other option, which is demanding the URL of the destination of the picture - but that does not work neither.

I am calling on the comrades to help me with this tiny obstacle in me settling in at!

Surely somebody has to know what to do!!

Awaiting positive response!


The Paris Communards struggled and died in the defense of their ideas. The banners of the revolution and of socialism are not surrendered without a fight. Only cowards and the demoralized surrender — never Communists and other revolutionaries.

There are other threads addressing this problem but I've been noticing other people having issues uploading new avatars lately. Maybe you should contact an admin to see if they can assist you if nothing else works. Thank you for trying, though. It's so annoying to have grey faces everywhere.
I don't regret burning my bridges. I regret that some people weren't on those bridges when I burned them.

Sorry, but I don't believe there is any option to do that.
You need to upload it to an image-hosting site (such as photo-bucket or many others) and use the link from there.

Sometimes (if the image is on a third site like a blog or wikipedia) you can just copy the image address, but that doesn't always work, so an image-hosting site is your best bet.

Another thing... for future reference... this topic probably belongs in Propaganda or maybe in Mir.
