i've noticed many people with avatars bigger than 80x80 pixels. i can't seem to get it to work. i have a 96x96 avatar that's 4.8kB and it won't let me upload it because it says it's too big. if i make it 80x80 it works fine but then it looks bad. and i see so many people with larger avatars... how do i get this to work?

Yeah, I noticed this too - It happened when the boards were upgraded to the new version.

The old board allowed for 100x100px or ~15kb.

I'm hoping this is just a temporary glitch, as I'd like to update my avatar.
(on the old boards, mine was the only one centered between the screenname and the location areas above and below it, now - I'm the only one not centered... :D)

I have decided to return it to 100x100 at 15kb. Avatars are only available to users with more than 30 posts.

I'd really appreciate it if users stop bringing the subject of avatars up, as we've had a lot of issues trying to host them, and far more time than necessary has been spent on this already.
