    I created an Avatar to use on my profile but when I went to select it it says it's not 100X150 Pixels. I know for damn sure I had it set for exactly that. so I figured I take it down about 1 pixel. That didn't work so I tryed posting it on a website to get it to work that way. It didn't work. Then I went and reversed the dimensions to 150X100 pixels. and to no avail. Please help me!

    there has been made a update to the vbulletin and that broke the ability to upload avatars temporary. EP is busy fixing it, so nothing you can do but wait until its fixed :(

    just to clarify they dont have to be GIF they can also be JPG or PNG, or even BMP to my knowledge.

    But yes avatar uploads are broken at the mo, and due to the way vB works you cant host it somewhere and link either as when you do that vB downloads the file into its local cache for use on the boards

    But BMP would be a bad idea since they tend to be very big.
