Site avatar not updating?

  1. I've noticed a problem with selecting your forum avatar here. I don't like this skin, and I changed it. I want my avatar to reflect that, but I can only pick my old skin as an avatar. I've waited about an hour. Is there anything that can be done? Thanks.
  2. You tried going to your profile and clicking on your avatar, then changing it? Did you change it 'officially' on
  3. Yep, and the skin shows up correctly in-game.
  4. I've waited a day now. Is something wrong with the servers that host this feature?
  5. Did you actually change it here? It doesn't change automatically
  6. Try selecting something different for your avatar; like a picture... Then try changing it to your character.

    I have a feeling that this will cause the your new skin to be loaded. Right now it is loading your old skin because that is what you are currently using for your avatar.
  7. Yep, I can only pick my old face, body, and combo.
    OK, I'll try that.
  8. I changed my earlier and I can change to it just fine.
  9. This didn't work, sadly. I don't see why...
    That's weird. It might be a problem on my end, although I doubt it.
  10. If no one has a better idea, I would suggest deleting your Temporary Internet files. The description for Temporary Internet files in IE is "Copies of webpages, images, and media that are saved for faster viewing"

    There may be a chance that your web browser is skipping checking for a new image and showing this old skin.

    Also, have you tried clicking "delete current avatar"?
  11. This didn't work either. What is going on here? :mad:
  12. Are you sure you updated on because "Mag" does not recognize you having any other skin uploaded (Mag is the Minecraft Achievement Generator used to generate your avatar) Maybe try reuploading your skin to
  13. Try getting justin/ICC to change it for you or look into this
  14. I think JG and ICC wouldn't be able to sort it out. If it doesn't work after a few days I'd recommend you email Mike (myscoo - the owner of MAG) myschoo [AT] gmail [DOT] com
  15. Er, want my joke response to that or my serious?

    Joke: Justin is god, can do anything

    Serious: They have the power to edit everything in your profile including signature and I would imagine avatar. It may be a problem with the website which ICC or JG could look into also.
  16. I am so confused why you are having this problem that I am ~Almost~ going to have you send me the skin, and manually create an avatar for you
  17. Sorry, but you're wrong. The auto generated avatars use MAG and are out of EMC's control.
