    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.

    New Limits are the same for Avatar and Profile Image.

    120px by 140px and 80k total size.

    The filesize needs to be below 80k, it will resize down but I'm not sure how much. I did it successfully at 250k for the file size.

    If people can't figure out how to resize their images, we need to have some volunteers to take them and resize for them. Just start a thread and ask for help getting it resized, then attach the file you want as your Avatar and the one you want for your Profile Photo and someone will help out. RIGHT?

    Figured it was time to change my Avatar anyway. It's bigger now, but I didn't mess around with resizing it. I could probably get it bigger, but it's okay as is. Thanks Steve.

    Ha Ha Ha Ha, I just knew Scott would screw up somehow. It's just in his personality makeup to be that way.... I just thought he'd be complaining about how he couldn't put pics in & try to blame it on the site lol....
