    So I'm having trouble uploading my avatar to the forums. Gravatar seems to be working fine, but the direct upload is broken. Is anyone else experiencing this?

    I have a feeling that @Repomeister is experiencing the same ;)

    Yeah my avatar won't come up either :( I didn't even change it, but I tried to re-upload it and it failed to a white box :(

    Same here - Avatar uploads and shows in user control panel but doesn't show up on posts.

    actually me thinks it's the website itself. most avatars don't show on the website and the website at times doesn't load or loads partially.

    I think the problem is in setting the permissions on the uploaded avatar file. Any old avatar is good but it looks like if you touch it, the server chmods it so it is 403 on page load. This would also explain why Gravatar is working.
