I've been trying to change my avatar and it's not letting me. I either get a unable to save message, or my file is too large. I shrunk my pic 115 x 145 and 8.40 KB. That's below the max size it says it allows. What am I doing wrong? I'm going to the bottom of the page under your account and change avatar. I tried uploading the image and I've tried linking it from my pb account. Neither way is working. Please help! Thx

You have to make sure that you have the picture in the right format, like JPG, JPEG, BMP. I am not sure what format it has to be in, but sometimes they have different size requirements for different formats.

I have it in JPEG format. It worked last year when I put my current avatar on? I even tried making it TINY like 75x100 in JPEG and it still didn't work :cry:

I was just trying to do this myself with the same issue. I tried my 150x100 avatar, 39kb and I got an error whether I tried to upload from my hard drive or from it's URL. I wonder if it has something to do with the board changes...

Yeah I was wondering the same thing, since it seems quite a few of us are having the same issue. I hope they are able to fix it, my user pic is from last year lol
