For some of us, even if the image toes the line, it still doesn't show up...... Rolling Eyes

I'll move it Wink

I recall that it isn't just the size of the avatar that counts, it's also the pixels (density, IIRC).

...but as Sploom implies, even having the right size picture doesn't always work...which is why I haven't bothered changing mine in a few years...

I have tried on a few occasions, but always revert to the Sheik (Yerbouti) as my default, because I know it works... Wink

I've tried using old photos/images that have worked in the past, but don't now! I wonder if it has something to do with something I don't know anything about......Yeah, summat like that..... Rolling Eyes

Right, I've upped the max size to 32768 bytes (32k) - was 8192 (8k) and dimensions to 200x200 pixels (was 100x100).

So both have increased fourfold - let's see of that helps Wink

Thanks for trying, anyway, Zap! Cool Cool

I just tried to upload four (not at the same time Rolling Eyes ) and all of them were rejected for being the wrong size.

I dunno what goes wrong. It states that my profile has been updated, but the image doesn't show up. I've even tried using the Blues Bros. .gif I used years ago, to no avail..... Confused

It's not a big deal I suppose, it's the curiosity in me, that wants to know....,. Rolling Eyes
