Funny, I just came in to ask the same question. Can't seem to change my profile picture here even though I changed it to "Make Primary." Even tried logging out and back in again. No different. I'll sleep on it and see if I am different tomorrow.

Same problem here? I made the new pic primary, but no change. When I logged out and back in, still no change.

Maybe the d-word topic cops are investigating allegations of copyright infringements with profile pics?

Fair use, officer, fair use!

oh no, mine is now fixed!

Faster, faster, I need to get to a meeting.

Like I said before, this is because your old picture was still in your browser's cache. Try reloading the page or emptying the cache. It's all fine.

Sorry that last line was a caption for my new profile pic, not a reference to my problem with the profile pic, which is indeed cured.

16 marks to Ben – clearing the cache cures the pic profile blues

In reply to Ron Osgood's post on Mon 23 Nov 2009 :

Only works for those with the premium d-word membership.

Ron, you can easily edit your profile. Just take out your birthdate under Bio.

I removed the date of birth for you, Ron. And just for the record, David was joking.

Andrew, does the problem persist? If so, can you give us more specifics? Anybody else with a Blackberry out there?

You'll need to ask someone who accesses that topic... :-)

How do you upload new profile photos? There doesn't seem to be an option to do that. Is there a maximum number I don't know about.


Ben Kempas

Upload here and click "Make primary".

Ben, you must see something as administrator that I don't. That page takes me to my current photos and I can make any of them primary, but I don't see a button to upload a new photo.

?!? Have you scrolled down?

Is anybody else encoutnering this?

Nothing apparent when I scroll down. I'm going to e-mail you a screenshot.

The maximum number of profile pictures is 6. This limit was added a few months ago, so you may have more than the maximum if you added them before the limit was introduced. You'll need to delete all but 5 of your photos before you can upload again.


Erica Ginsberg

Aha, that must be it.

Mr Gerard, glad to see you alive and well. Waiting dearly to see a pic or two of the d-word crowd waiting for the free ride in Amsterdam etc.

Oh, I've got a few pics of that... You'll have to wait for a few months though before I can post them... Remind me.

Will try to scan some this week.. I just got the film developed... maybe I can get mine up before Ben gets back from the boat!
