I've been trying to put up a picture for my avatar, and I can't do it.  I don't know if the dimensions are right or what.  Can someone help me?

All I can say is that I had to minimize my pic a lot before it would upload.

The max size is:

Valid file types: gif, jpg, png
Maximum filesize: 30kb
Maximum Dimensions: 75px x 75px

Do a right-button click on your file, select properties, and see how large it is.  Many online image storage sites have tools to resize images.

btw> That site is free.  You don't have to register to upload/resize files.  The file size pull-down menu has an avatar size.
