I notice that all those that raised the issue, still do not have avatars on their profiles. That would make me think it has not been solved.

One thing of which I was curious, is whether it is just us ... or can no one put/replace their avatar picture? I would think either way, it would make troubleshooting easier.


Same thing happened to me, yesterday and still again today. To date, I have not had any other problems accessing or using the site - like some others have, I just can’t replace an avatar.

Thank you atcsundevil for the fast response. All I can see is that other users are effected by the same no-avatar bug and there is no solution in sight. ;) Now, what else can we do than staying patient, calm and composed?

I’m glad I’m not the only one dealing with this. I’ve been trying to change mine for a while and I kept asking myself “why have I been blocked? I didn’t do anything wrong!”.

This has been going on for a while now. I think we have to accept that the owners of this site no longer wish to make any investment in keeping it working, as this is one of several glitches that have gone unfixed.

Sad, as this was once a great site. Thankfully, there are many other aviation wesites around that actually work!
Just because I stopped arguing, doesn't mean I think you are right. It just means I gave up!

Please send your username and desired image to [email protected]. Please, primarely to replace the default avatar as dealing with a million avatar changes might be a bit too much. Changes will be dealt with but may take longer to process

Thanks for info, It works for some, and not for others. So the cause of the issue is hard to pinpoint.

Unable to change profile picture

Wed Jul 17, 2019 7:10 pm

When I try upload a picture for my profile I get sent to an error page which says:

Sorry, you have been blocked
You are unable to access airliners.net

At the bottom there is something which says Cloudflare Ray ID: 4f7e8010cfca6ab3

Everything else works fine, I can post on the forum etc. but I just can't change my profile picture.

Still no solution for the avatar pic uploading? Are the site owners really trying to fix the problem?

I just checked my email and did not see anything from A.net regarding this matter. Would your reply have come to my Gmail acct or would it come to my A.net mailbox?

Basically just a question if you still had issues with the avatar

I think it's just an issue affecting some users. I don't know if it's a browser issue or an account/site issue. Again, it's not really something that we as moderators are involved with, so I know about as much as you. The developers are aware of it, so if there isn't a fix yet, then all I can say is that hopefully there will be one soon.


I've tried multiple browsers and the same issue occurs. This looks like an acct/site issue.

So apparently, Yerbol's email had gone into my spam folder for some odd reason. Anyways, I just replied to him. Thanks for the heads up.

It is, and unfortunately I think the only recourse is to email [email protected]. I think they can change it. We've been told the developers are working on a fix, but that was a while ago.

If I had to guess, I’d say the avatar feature has been disabled intentionally. It’s not anything that needs a “fix”.

Why would we purposely disable a feature that causes us significantly more work? I think you need to familiarize yourself with the theory of Occam's Razor, which is essentially that the simplest solution is usually the correct one. The simplest explanation is: it broke, and the developers haven't gotten around to fixing it, just like a lot of things on this site. We definitely aren't interested in breaking the things that are working.

Count me among those who are having the 'BLOCKED' screen screaming at me when I try to upload my personal photo. In a sort of paradoxical way, I'm 'glad' to see that others have the same issue. Well, "Glad/Not Glad."
