How to add an avatar?
« on: 04 January, 2019, 11:45:55 AM »
Hi, I've just tried to add an avatar to my profile bit it doesn't seem to like the Imgur link; and it didn't want to upload a 21k jpeg because it was 'too large or not an avatar'.

What should I do? Cheers!

Have you tried it from your PC rather than Imgur link ?

Sorry to bump an old topic but I'm having this exactly the same issue and figured if anyone else eventually has this problem also it would be more helpful to just have one thread for all avatar-related answers.

I tried uploading from my PC and it still says it's "too large or not an avatar".

What gives?

I've just got a little one, but that's to do with my age.
