Oh, I have. Plenty of times.

But I assumed it's because my profile does not meet certain post/status requirement. I have uploaded a picture for my avatar successfully. I looked around briefly, and saw no post explaining such requirement -- which is fair enough, the mods are not obligated to do so. I saw one other poster with less posts than I have, but has an avatar successfully displayed. But CF is an old discussion forum, so it likely that a.) requirements changed at some point and/or b.) that particular poster went through certain status change that I was not a part of.
I went through these thoughts -- and decided not to worry about it -- not because I am more placid or have more skills, etc. -- but because I happen to have seen how a few discussion forums work and have even set up a few. This is something that will happen for you, too, with more things that you come across and with more time. So the next time you come across avatar picture not working, you won't be stressed by it. And it expands to other experiences, a profile signature on another discussion forum, possibly, or an avatar picture on something other than a discussion forum.
Don't worry, things will get better.
