View Full Version : Personal Avatar Upload not working

08-07-2007, 11:39 AM
I tried uploading my avatar and it did not upload.

1: Go to http://steamcommunity.com/ using Mozilla Firefox
2: log in
3: Click on Edit SteamID
4: Scroll down to the avatar area and click browse
5: Select 184x184 JPG image, 33.8 kb
6: Click upload.
7: Wait for an hour while nothing happens
8: Repeat on Internet explorer for the same results

It just sat there loading forever, never uploading, never updating. It's not a problem with my internet as everything else was loading fine.

Tried using the steam client version as well.

Same, it's not just you. I'm having this problem as well :(

The first time I tried uploading, it gave me a notification that the avatar must be between 100x100 and some other size, but after all further uploads, the notification never came back up and I was left wondering what to do :(

IMO it looks like they temporary disabled avatars uploading due to fixing 'no avatar after upload' problem

I had problems uploading an avatar yesterday. I just got a totally vague "Try Again" message.

Avs work today, at least for some people. Your best bet is to wait it out.

We currently allow you to upload rather large images - we scale them down to size. You do not need to make the image 184x184 yourself, though you're welcome to, to get the cropping just how you like it.

We had a hardware hiccup with our avatar processing, things should be running smoothly now.

If you're still having problems, try this...

Above '184px', '64px' and '32px' where the picture of your avatar is supposed to be...right click on those empty images and select 'Show Picture'.

I tried this by accident and my avatar showed up and it's working properly on other parts of the Steam Community, too. Maybe a simple coding issue made it a 'local' error for all of us having trouble.
