Avatar won't change after 2 weeks!

  1. About 2 weeks ago, it could have been longer, I changed my avatar. Even today, it hasn't changed. I've read heaps of other posts on this, but it seems they all took a few hours, but mine still hasn't changed! Do you think maybe after I post this the changes might come up? Sorry, I just think 2 weeks is a lot longer than a few hours, & I want it to change!

    The blog I need help with is surfergal16.wordpress.com.

  2. And after I've posted this my new avatar comes up! Hmmm...

  3. Ok I'm sorry for wasting time, but this is the way to get the avatar to work! Thanks, Surfergal16

  4. I've had the same problem, I'm trying this to see if it will actually come up!! :(

    @punkgirl236: If you tried to upload an avatar from your dashboard, go to http://en.gravatar.com/ instead.

  6. Below are the best practices for uploading a gravatar at the gravatar site
    (1) Prepare the image prior to uploading it and make sure it’s no larger than 128 pixels X 128 pixels square.

    (2) The image filetype has to be either PNG, GIF or JPG. Make sure the file name contains only letters and numbers – no special characters – and make sure all letters are in lowercase.

    (3) Also make sure the image file name has an extension (Example – image.jpg)

    (4) Note that there is a time delay while your gravatar image propagates.

    (5) If you are experiencing problems then read the FAQs as it contains common questions and answers to them > http://en.gravatar.com/site/faq/

  7. Thankyou, I will try these things!

  8. You're welcome and best wishes for a happy ending.

  9. Yay, I went to the gravatar site and I realised somehow the wrong rating for the avatar was sent! It should work now! Thankyou for your help! :)

  10. You're welcome. :)
