No, you don’t need Moderator approval, you should be able to upload a picture in your profile.
Still don't get why my little picture doesn't show up, It's in my account settings but doesn't book onto the forum threads
Are you uploading a pic from your photo library on your computer or iPad etc?
I don't recall exactly how I did it, I probably just dragged it in, or browsed to it from the upload pane in the account settings.... I think I did end up converting the file first so the photo had some appropriate pixel size in case the process did not automatically resize the photo. The photo resides in my account page, it just doesn't render in the little avatar section on threads. Not a huge deal lol, mainly a curiosity.
@jherbertbpc those are two different things . You have to go to your profile and up on the left under the little circle where your avatar would be hit the edit button. Then a little camera icon will appear in the circle, and when you push that it will ask you if you want to take a photo or access your picture library on your device Or computer. make sure the photo you want to use is in your photo library, choose it and it will automatically size it for you.
To digress, I may have accidentally clicked those triangles on the left, in case anybody gets a notice of up or down vote, SORRY
More upload flakeyness!
It works perfectly fine for me - just tested it three times and no issues!
I'll try a different browser
