I'll try and place my avatar link from imgur into the profile pic section, and it will revert to the "use no avatar" option (unless I try uploading a pic and then using the link, it'll revert back to the upload option).

What gives?

are you remembering to delete the "http://" that's always there for some reason

I think I figured it out.

for some reason the imgur link had "https://", but the default "http://" probably means that we only use that format and not https

am i right cheat?

Knees go weak, and I swoon, underneath the pallid moon.
Praise the night, and praise the night!
The only time I feel alright.
Give me the link.
this is actually an issue I've been meaning to raise for a long time.

On certain wifi networks, especially public ones, trying to do anything on the site results in an error stating zero sized reply.

This stops avatar changes sometimes, along with posting replies, though quick reply is usually unaffected.
