Default Can't upload a picture (avatar)

As the title suggests.

I get the following error:

Code:
Upload failed due to failure writing temporary file.
Thanks

Hmm are you sure its within size AND file size limits? If so it might be something wrong with either the file itself or the fourms. I will make Chipp aware of it.

Is it still borked? If so, I can manually set it for you in the meantime while we try to figure the issue out.

The mention of temp files leads me to believe its not a problem with the image itself, but rather the way the server is trying to handle it. I'm not they guy to ask about backend issues though, that falls more into BFRD's territory.

It's fine for now (as in I do not need an avatar).

I just wanted to leave a ticket so that it can be addressed

Thanks!

I will need to do a little more looking into this issue. The temporary solution is for you to download the image locally and then upload. This error only seems to occur if you are using an online source.

You may have never had this issue before, but you do have it now. The immediate solution for this current problem is to download the image to your computer and use the upload feature. The end result is identical. Since there is a simple workaround, I am not sure how quickly this issue will be resolved. It is a result of the servers being moved from Dallas to Toronto which happened a few weeks back.

LOL sorry not laughing at the error or situation, but I work as IT Support and this just cracked me up. It was classic user response with a classic support comment lol.
