User Avatar Waiting for Moderation...Forever

Sorry, I'm being dramatic. It has only been a month. Still, I would love to have my new avatar approved. It is beyond tame and it is 100% original. The file is 75x75 JPEG. I have no idea why it would be held up.

I've sent polite emails to memberhelp@literotica.com and received no response. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!

I do realize that the forum has it's own avatars and that you have to earn them. For my stories though, I already have an avatar that is publicly visible. I'm just trying to change it. Thanks!

You cannot upload an avatar until you hit 100 posts.

I see. Though, how is it that I already have one for my author profile? If you follow the "my stories" link in my signature you'll it. Spoiler: it's a butt.

Address a private message to Laurel or Manu since they are the only ones who can answer your question. Your email message probably got lost in the mountain of SPAM their e-mail accounts are inundated with. Manu would probably be the one to fix your problem, so I'd try PMing him first.

The author profile is on a different server. For all intents and purposes, it's a different website. This also sort of explains why you can sign into this forum and then open your author profile in another browser and have to log in all over again over there.

Conversely, if you sign in first over there, then you are automatically signed in here.
I'm still trying to work that one out myself.

Your avatar visible as part of your profile on the left here <--, is permitted after 100 posts, but your signature pic can be added before that. It's a bit confusing. You can upload your AV through 'edit your Profile' but the signature pic through Options I think.
Keep posting then you can do both ))

I was going to say something about that before, that you are permanently logged in via the author's profile side whereas you have to check the "remember me" box on this side to not be logged out every ~10 minutes of idleness, but it didn't seem pertinent to the OP's question and I go off on tangents enough as it is.

The OP is asking about his Author's Picture (on the main site,) NOT any of the forum image options.

Ooooh yea.
Tell you what MandM email me the file and I'll have a look. Some sites insist on a max file size in addition to pixels size. Apologies if you've already tried this but happy to help

With all due respect, you're wrong. The OP already has an author pic up. I looked. It's there. What they want to know is why they don't have an avatar pic under their name in the threads in spite of their author's profile which already has the pic up.

I don't know. I think M&Ms "waiting for moderation" is what a first time forum user sees when they upload a picture for a forum avatar. There's some little warning that states that.

I think the 100 posts answer fulfilled their question but we'll see when they log in again.

I'll go ahead and pm Laurel or Manu, thanks!

To confirm, yes I'm talking about the author pic not the forum pic. See the screenshot I attached.

There appears to be two places to upload an av on the story profile. One is at the top and another at the bottom. Have you tried both places?

I haven't updated my profile on that side in years and have never added an av there so my comment is pure speculation.

The bottom side profile link is a dead link. I've always used the top side and have changed pics before. I'd like to change the current pic or at least remove the old one. I'm at the mercy of Laurel or Manu or whoever at this point.

Thanks for pointing that out Cathleen, I uploaded the picture at the bottom as well, but the avatar remains in tact. I'm not sure what the bottom picture is for either, so I'm still stuck.

Begin general rant:
This is ridiculous. Just to re-state the problem, every time someone clicks on my username (for stories, NOT forum) they see a picture. I can not change that picture. Go ahead and check it out. You can click the link in my signature for "My Stories". You will see My Stories. You will also see a picture of a butt. That picture exists as my avatar for eternity. I can't change it.

I've uploaded many different files, all within the specs. I tried jpeg, png, and gif just for the hell of it. The moderation never goes through. I've uploaded pictures to both the top and the bottom of the Main > Profile area. Pm's to Laurel and Manu don't get responses. If I can't change my picture, I would at least like to remove the current one.

I can't really do anything at this point but keep this thread alive, so that is what I'll do. Thanks to everyone who's tried to help me out with this.

I don't know why you are having this issue, but have you tried to remove the picture? Not change it but remove it? If you are having issues with removing it, then the issue is with what has become embedded.

If the remove command goes through, and then you try to upload a new picture then you know the issue is either the files you are uploading, or perhaps the manner you are saving the changes.

What I don't understand is from the start the image already there is a butt, but you say you want to change it to a butt and that it will be "totally untame" which suggests it's pornographic (hard porn) image.

This might be the reason it hasn't passed moderation.

If you check my previous post where I attached a screenshot you'll see that there is no such function as "remove", you can only upload a new picture. You'll see the new picture as well and it is quite tame with no nudity.
