Restoring an avatar.
Bropg64 asked the question, and it looks like a lot of others have had the same problem.
The stupid thing (take note webteam) is that the option to go to your personal page has vanished as well.
So, here is a “how to do it”.
Check the size of your avatar image is exactly 80 pixels by 80 pixels.
Save this in a folder where you can find it easily.
Go to a post you have made and click on your own name.
Now you can click on Personal Profile
The very first item is a box you can click on to browse for your avatar.
Click on your avatar file and then on the box at the bottom marked Open.
Now go to the bottom of the Personal Profile page and save it.
The avatar will now work.
I took the opportunity to go back to an old one (well I have had the one that Vince A created for me for quite a while) and will probably change again - if the forum ever gets sorted out. It really is a shame - this was easily the best of the MS fora, before someone decided that it could be “improved”. Obviously they have never heard of Unintended Consequences.
