HELP - Avatar problems!

Dear anyone who can help...

I am unable to access my photobucket account from work due to recent updates to the network...I hate I.T:wallbash: ...as a result I am unable to change my Christmas avatar back to my regular one.

Is there anyway someone can change it for me or am I destined to be forever Santa Coastie? :sad:

That's a tough one coastie. The only thing I can think of is that you would have to message someone that you trust with your life, your SO login details and password and also your photobucket login details and password, then log out of SO so they could log in as you, access your photobucket account and change your avatar.

Don't know how else it could be done, unless you can get access to another computer soon, that will let you go to photobucket.

Don't worry Coastie - it hardly notices Big Grin and remember Bob kept hers on all last year :good:

PS - I'm not at all upset that you don't trust me with your life Wink

Alternative:

Email someone eg me the avatar.

I put it on my photobucket then put a link to it in a post.

You copy the link and use that as the URL of the image.

I'll pm you my email address so you can send it if you want to.

ALTERNATIVELY

and this is easier if it lets you:

save the image to your desktop and upload it from there when changing your avatar - I haven't tried lately but from memory I think it might let you do that

Yay it worked...although it did cause my PC to have a wobble but I am back and hat free...woooo! :yahoo:

Thank-you SF and Crit for your kind offers of help...I was,as it turns out, just being a numpty and ignored the obvious alternative to photo-bucket...go to the original source of the avatar...der! :wallbash:

Well done Coastie. I must admit that my suggestion was based on the fact that I thought Photobucket was the only source of your avatar and that it was "locked" in there. Silly me :ninja:
