I've been trying to assign a forum avatar for the past couple of days, but always get an error. Since I see that others have successfully set theirs, I figured I'd say something about it.

Yesterday when I tried to save the avatar selection, I just received:

"Not connected :"

Today the error is a little more verbose:

"Not connected : Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)"

Just keep trying, it will eventually go through. I had the same problem yesterday trying to change my Avi and sig. It will eventually work.

Excellent! Thanks for the advice. I went ahead and spammed the save, and like you said, it eventually took it. Yay, I'm no longer faceless! ..well, sorta.
