Topic: BFFC Upgrades: Avatar Upload/Selection

We're rolling out a new feature that both allows you to upload your own avatar (which has already been a feature) alongside the ability to choose from some pre-made ones.

This feature for BFFC members can be found on your new profile, linked in the header near the logout button. Then it's a new link called "Change Avatar."

Default avatars are a B&W Fett from ROTJ. We'll be adding more pre-made ones.

Give it a try. Post any/all feedback, including any technical issues you may have.

Enjoy!

Re: BFFC Upgrades: Avatar Upload/Selection

A technical problem, unless I somehow missed some step:
All I tried to do was upload a new avatar.
I'd select the image and then click "Upload" and it wouldn't change. It still remains my old one on this new profile.
So I tried editing from the old "Edit Profile/Edit Avatar page" and it did change it there but it did not change it on the new profile.
I even tried deleting it from the old avatar edit page, then re-uploading the new one and all it would do is show my new one on the old edit avatar page, but it would restore the old one on the new profile/edit avatar page.
A little help or insight would be appreciated. Thanks. smile

I AM the riffraff. And I'm going in.

Well, what d'ya know! In this forum it shows my new avatar, but not on my new profile. So I'm thinking, technical problem/bug?

Edit: Scratch that, I guess.
It finally occurred me to clear the cached images from my browser. But please note that may just be a coincidence and not the solution.

Good feedback! Will add a server-side "cache buster." Each avatar gets re-saved in different sizes and sometimes -- without some extra programming -- it's not always immediate. Hope to have that fixed soon. Thanks!

Re: BFFC Upgrades: Avatar Upload/Selection

It allows me to upload an image but won’t show it anywhere to select it tried several times with no luck, not complaining just giving a heads up

I can help. I see it on the server. Will work to handle .jpeg vs. jpg and also compress the 1.5mb image. Good feedback and good bug to fix -- thanks!

UPDATE: All fixed and upgraded, Wedge! Thanks for the feedback to help get this feature upgraded!
