Changing Face Pic

captin_jack's picture

Perhaps I'm just dense today, but no matter what I try, I can't change my face pic. I try deleting the current one, which works, but when I try to upload a new one, the old one shows back up, and not the new one.

I've checked to make sure I'm trying to upload the correct pic, and even moved it to a new location. Help!

Thanks for trying! I'm sure there is a perfectly good reason for this. Probably has to do with frogging, I'm sure.

Not sure what you tried but

Not sure what you tried but here are the steps that SHOULD work:

Click on "My Account"

Click on the "Edit" button

Scroll down to "Delete Picture" and click the box

Scroll all the way down and click the Submit Button.

Then go back into Edit your account and Browse and Upload your new picture.

Is that what you tried?

As a computer guy, that's

As a computer guy, that's what I'd try. Delete the old picture first, then add a new one. If the old one doesn't delete, or does and that doesn't work, and there are no wierd symbols in the name, then it's a problem with the site.
