I just created this account. I tried uploading an image for my profile/user image and nothing happens.

It looks like the servers that usually handle profile images (avatars, profile banners, etc.) are misbehaving. There were evidently broader issues across the site earlier today, and I only just noticed this particular issue, so I have not heard anything about a prognosis. You can either keep an eye on this forum and try to wait it out, or you can try the 3rd party image host approach - something I would not ordinarily recommend, but might get you going sooner if this event lasts as long as it did last time. If you need tips on how to use a 3rd party image host for your avatar you can consult with the experts over in How To GameSpot. If even the 3rd party approach isn't working, that would be a new wrinkle, and something to add to this report.
