Is anyone else having trouble changing their avatar?  It doesn't save for me whether I enter a URL for a picture, or upload my own.

yes

I've changed mine before and the change didn't seem to take
immediate effect but happened later on (hours later)

It's taken now, but it took me trying quite a few times.  And even when I thought it had taken a couple of times, if I logged off then back on, it wasn't the new one.

Cute new avatar airmich, but then again I'm biased.  ;)  Looks familiar somehow?

Thanks.  Had to find something along the line of my navymich one! (https://Army.ca/forums/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi48.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Ff232%2Fnavymich%2Ftheotugboat.jpg&hash=8ab83249623e34a865592d1b46fc8334)

Avatar changes take effect immediately, but because of caching (usually in the browser, sometimes in the network) it can take a while to become visible. I always right click on my avatar, view image, then reload that. The new image will appear and be visible from that point on.
