I think it has something to do with my profile, because I can edit my profile with Ebil Princess.

I tried to change my sig. I also tried to change location, interests, occupation and avatar. None of them worked either.

I removed everything and I believe it was my avatar, because it was loading and when I clicked delete avatar it suddenly went fast. I'm going to add the things now again, one by one ^^


Edit: I tried to upload an avatar and it went wrong again. I guess it has something to do with photobucket... (but Bruno has his avatar uploaded at photobucket too!)

Edit again: Other avatar from photobucket not working either. Guess I'm going to use imageshack ...

Sno's avatar and Wyrmfell's sig (the Chroniclers button, to be precise) also have photobucket items.

*Bruno goes change the host of his avatar

Nope. Still terribly slow, and still getting faster if I try to change the language altogether. Perhaps the bug has a daft sense of humour.

Well I have a photobucket avatar too (even from the same as Sandra's) and I don't have the problem either. But when Sandra used imageshack, it worked a lot better.

Hmm... let me try with this account the other avatar.

Edit: It's slow but at least it changes... (but when I try the same avatar with Sandra it gives an error. )

Edit2: when changing it back to the one I have now (the ebil princess) it wasn't slow. Maybe it has to do with the size?

It can't be the size alone, because the one who works the best for me is larger than another one, but is slower... Also I tried to get a smiley as avatar and that one is slow too. I tried to see if it had to do with gif / jpg but that didn't gave any results either.

sigh

I must find out what it is

If you get impatient and don't wait till it's ready with loading, but is far enough, you do have your avatar.


Maybe it's just an ebil system that does what it wants whenever it wants

Until now I only had one that wasn't slow and that is the ebil princess one... found another one that wasn't slow. Q's one was fast, Dragon73 was pretty fast, HebrewB was okay, Bruno was okay, Huey was fast, wnvoss was pretty fast. But the one I try to use now is still the slowest cry I only noticed with avatars from myself that they didn't work at all...

*goes do something else now*

When doing the tip from Bruno I changed to Dutch. So now the mails I got where in Dutch, but everything else is still English. When I look in my profile it does say Dutch. It used to change a lot more when I put it on Dutch...

whistle

yes, not all is in dutch tounge1 Will be soon. Don't despair grin

also, there is a thing that tries to check the ava size and the image size for the images in your sig. Maybe the checking of the ava takes very long somehow.

But i'm looking forward to see when you have isolated the problem so i can try to fix it smile

Yeah, I've been experiencing long update times with my sig as well. I recently added the "Chroniclers" button to my sig, and every time I have updated since then, it's taken an amazingly long time...

I recently changed my avatar and did have problems...
I thought it was related to the file format of the image too...

My first avatar was .jpeg format and I had no problems it was fast.

I tried changing to .gif so I could animate it and It wouldn't change... after a long period of time It asked me if I wanted to open or save the file profile.php eh I tried both and both times it just gave me an empty file...

I decided I didn't like the animated avatar anyway so I just created a .jpeg version of it and it changed no problems...

I used Iceweasle (A fork of FireFox) I tried a number of images (both .gif and .jpeg) and the only ones I had trouble with were the .gif format images.

Maybe it has to do with the type of compression used on the gif file whatsthat or maybe if it is interlaced or not as all the .gif images I tried that didn't work were interlaced.

Bumping this because it's starting to affect me now.

I take almost a full minute to update here and on the test forum. In my case though, I know it's not avatar related as mine is hosted on my own site which unlike Photobucket isn't slow as Hades.
