I tried to change my avatar today because i wanted to upload a new one. (got a bit bored with the current one).
This gave the error message below:

"The attachments upload directory is not writable. Your attachment or avatar cannot be saved."

Edit: i just found out that the personal text and signature can't be changed either. I got the same error message.

I think your only option is to change it from pc to one from the templates, can't upload new one unfortunately.

Keep on rockin' my friends

Yup, I believe this function is disabled for security reasons. 

And don't ask me to explain all the vulnerabilities that being able to upload an image into the server directory where the images would be stored and then displayed would introduce.

LOL.

I won't. I'm aware of those myself, but didn't consider this to be the reason.

Oh well, Thank you for the explanation.

Sorry Lord G. It is a source of frustration but some historic avatars are still in place and some were lost  (mine went) and only the stock avatars are available.

No problem Close.

If the option ever comes back, i'll update my avatar. For now, i'm happy using none. I just got tired of the one i was using.

So I've popped it in here.

I'm trying to upload a profile picture to my account and I keep getting the following error.

Quote
The attachments upload directory is not writable. Your attachment or avatar cannot be saved.

Has anybody else had this problem and if so, what did you do to rectify it?

Thanks.  :)

Ahhh, okay. Thanks David.

Do you know what those security reasons are? I'm just being nosey.

Can't help on the tech details of security, SgtColon. Perhaps security was the wrong word, maybe it is about preventing vulnerabilities to being hacked. But I'm not really up to speed on these things, just recounting what I recall when the point was raised before.

If you mean avatars - we have had issues with avatars for a long time. I am not at all a tech guy so don't understand nor can I explain.

Do I need to use an external site or is there a way on here I can embed it into my post?

Thank you. :)

After you have uploaded your image and are ready to share, click the three dots next to Copy Link and from the dropdown click on the copy link for BBCode (for forums) and just paste that direct to your thread.  8)
