Avatar size limited

Post by bigdtx8 » Mon Feb 15, 2016 6:07 pm

Mea culpa ....

My original avatar was 'too graphic' & was deleted. It wasn't a particularly large file size, from what I remember, but now it seems like I'm very resticted in the file size of any avatar I attempt to upload. I have a file that's 66k in size and am unable to upload it.

Any suggestions on how to get it uploaded or to upload something larger than 16kb would be appreciated ?

I'm also wondering if i'm being limited in file size due to my earlier transgression ?
Not accusing jus' curious in the hope it could be lifted.

I would suggest opening it in a picture editor (should be one in Windows if you right click), then resizing the pic. Try going down 20% and see how much that changes the file size.

The max dimensions should be 150 x 150 pixels. My own avatar is about 20 kb, if that is any help.
