My avatar has, for some reason, been changed from the picture I chose when I first joined the forum a few days ago, although it has been OK until today. No explanation, and I can find no possible reason in the FAQs.
I tried to ask Admin earlier today, but no reply as yet.

I don't like this new picture. It doesn't look anything like me! :(

Any suggestions, please, why this should have happened?

If it is linked to a photo stored elsewhere, perhaps the owner has change the original within the same URL.
The way to be sure it stays the same is to download it to your computer and then upload it from there .. but of course, be sure to ask the copyright owner if it's not you .. we must keep GOM honest :wink:

Thanks for your help.
I 'own' the picture; it is stored on my computer and it's still there - I checked!
I did try to upload it again on to this site, but the message in the User Control Panel reads "The avatar functionality is currently disabled". I wonder why that should be the case; it hasn't appeared there before.
Anyway, I'm hoping that Admin will get back to me. He/she/it is probably busy.
