I'm just curious, I just added a profile image for the first time, and I've no idea how long it takes to finally be shown ... it's been ages.
I assume this is normal; what's the average overhead?

For that matter, is it just me that can't see it. Can you?


Edit: I mean, God, eh,...
Avast! Aye ah do swear on me monkey, that if 't should appear on this 'eer post.... Yargh, shiver me timbers. An' Yo-ho-ho, an' all tha'.

It should show immediately you may have not installed in the system.

As long as you select "use custom avatar" and choose option #2 to upload it from your computer and "save changes", it will work. Just keep trying, you can do it. :) Like above post, just make sure it's on your computer or link to another site.

There's a difference between your profile pic and your avatar. The former works fine; the latter hasn't been chosen yet. To see the profile pic, click "Quick Links" and "Your Profile".

That is your profile picture, no?

An avatar, which you see on the post, is different. http://ubuntuforums.org/profile.php?do=editavatar

Thanks guys, yes I did presume that profile pic was synonymous with avatar. I've got it working now.
