Missing Avatars

If anyone is wondering why their avatar is missing, there was a slight issue with the server yesterday which resulted in the avatar images being lost.
In order to restore your avatar, you will have to upload the image again.

Why can't I upload an Avatar from my iPad? I have one ready but the Choose File option does not work.

I've looked at it. How does it work? The field is showing my email address.
I will not be able to respond till much later this evening. Taking the Missus out.

@ Black Hole.
Your help would not cure the problem or help others using iPads. Though we are in the minority.

I had a look at it last week, and you have to register with the Gravatar website, upload your avatar image to be associated with your identity and email address.

Edit: There might be a site related issue with the normal avatar system, which is not related to the iPad.

I think the number of people using an iPad as their only reliable Internet browser in addition to a Linux net-book and a flakey Vista PC, and yet interested in uploading an avatar graphic to the hummy.tv forum is probably pretty small. Wait 'til Christmas and we'll sort it out.

I uploaded my graphic again OK after they all got lost, but that was before the host move.

Update: just done it again, success.

Surprisingly, there are still quite a lot of members who have not yet re-uploaded their avatar files since they were lost in August.

I tried updating my avatar last week, but could not get it to work, so tried out the Gravatar option which worked first time.
