    Uploaded new festive picture and have selected it to be my default, but it's not changing.

    For future reference, this happens because your browser caches images to save bandwidth. Force-refreshing the page with the "reload" button or F5 usually makes the new avatar display.

    I tried the F5 key several times, and I tried it in Exploder and Chrome.

    Interesting. I suppose it's possible BYC also takes a few minutes to update the image, though I've never experienced that myself.

    I used to changes avatars all the time and never had any problems.
