Hi, can anyone help, I accidentally deleted my avatar and have been trying to add a new one, but everything I try comes up as a either invalid or a white box with a red square in it.
I am sure it is undersize...I have also tried non animated avatars without luck...what am I doing wrong?

You are right

Size: 19.0 KB (19,470 bytes)

Size on disc: 20.0 KB (20,480 bytes)

From experience of animated avatars on here anything that shows up as over 19.5 KB in My Computer doesn't work.

Before the site was updated it just showed oversize animated avatars as a still but I don't know what it does with them now.

I have tried the resized image you produced, uploaded it from my desktop. and from photobucket, through firefox, through ie7 and through avant...nothing...on ie/avant I get a white box red X, in firefox, I get nothing, on all of them if I choose from desktop it appears to upload but nothing shows, I have again tried it with very basic gifs and nothing....frustrating

That one should work (it's 19 KB) but doesn't

I've just tried with my normal animated avatar which is only 7 KB and that doesn't work either (it used to!!!!)

It's obviously a bug in the updated site
