Travel Forums System Talk Unable to Change Profile Picture

I'm trying to update my profile in order to include a profile picture. It allows me to upload a photo but just places it in my gallery, even when I select 'update profile picture' and upload from there it still sticks it in with my general photos. How can I set it as my profile photo?

Thanks in advance!
Dani

Check out the FAQs regarding uploading photos - I believe you need to tag it as 'me' for it to become a profile pic.

We used to prefill the "me" tag when following the "Upload Profile Photo" link. Sounds like the new photo uploader (put in last month) doesn't do that anymore. So, as mojorob says, you can fix this by filling in that me tag yourself (here's the specific photo edit page for you to do that (link won't work for anyone else))

Hey, that worked! Thanks a lot. And thanks for the link!

I just updated the photo upload form to make that work again as well. Photos uploaded should now have the "me" tag included when following the link from your profile.
