My Avatar Isn’t Working
i found a “bug” on avatar associated on displayed nick.
if you got a space in the displayed nick, then the avatar will be the “unknown” one
http://a.wordpress.com/avatar/unknown-48.jpg <– this (48 can be 128 or 16)
unknown is the displayed nick (in my case dodoalien)
if i change my nick to “dodo alien” then my avatar will disapear and will be substituted by the “unknown” one
it’s a known issue?
yeah same happens with me. :(
When creating and uploading an avatar to wordpress.com here are some basics worth remembering:
(1) Be sure your image one of these file types – jpg, jpeg, png, gif (Note that bmp’s cannot be uploaded due to size).
(2) Do not use anything in the file name except letters and numbers. Use no spaces, no dashes, no underscores, or any type of special character or punctuation, except for the dot between the file name and the extension. Also make sure that the file name has an extension.
(3) Choose an image that does not have any transparency in it.
(4) Pre-sized the image to be 128 pixels x 128 pixels square prior to trying to upload it.

this avatar thing’s making me yoko
I see you avatar fine here. After uploading an avatar, it may take an hour or so before it gets all the way through the system.
Apparently you didn’t read the other posts in this thread.That’s too bad because if you had you would not have been frustrated at all. There is a time delay before avatars display. Also because you didn’t read the posts in the thread you ended up posting inappropriately here. The correct place to test avatars is in this thread https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic.php?id=8515
I see your avatar now so happy blogging. :)
