I'm testing out some new limits for Avatar sizes and Profile Pictures as well, need some people to test them. So please try to upload a new Avatar or Profile picture if you would and then give me feedback.

I have asked about a dozen people to try this, with mixed results so far with the ability to upload larger files. Just make sure that you're uploading a photo that is NOT over 1 MB in size and the system should auto-resize it down for you.

New Avatar limits are 100px x 140px. So that's 100 pixels wide by 140 pixels vertical.

EDIT:
New Limits are the same for Avatar and Profile Image.

120px by 140px and 80k total size.
