I resized the image. So that's not a problem. Well, except it doesn't look great. If any of you can do a better job, here's the original.

Avatars need to be very small. 200x200 or there abouts. I did up the size a while back: might be 150x150 pixels that is.
Any bigger and it starts to poke into the main frame and looks crap.

Try this

yeah apparently (I actually looked) it's 65 pixels.

Try this,

yep that is weird.
It won't even link to the image I uploaded.

I'll check the yabbfiles - but unless all these bloody huge pictures have clogged the server can't see why there would be an issue.

Huh - weird. I changed the avatar thingy to 65 x0 'cos it said that would keep the images proportional.
And that's what buggered it up. reset it to 65x65 and it works fine and doesn't resize to exactly 65x65 - go figure.

Anyway, works now.

I've gotten that same message as well! I'm using this image:

It's 65x65, as per the materials I already read on this thread.
