I am having trouble with my avatar. I shrunk it to 75 x 75 pixels at the resize site. Then uploaded it to imgur.com and got a url. Have put it into the avatar area and checked get avatar from url but nothing happens. I have done it three separate times with no results. Any suggestions?
Shrink it a little more to 65x65.
I got that from LarBrd33, and it worked for me.
I don't think 65x65 is a hard rule. Someone else is using an avatar that is 57x80... so you can play around with it, but that's what I know works.
Originally I was the guy with the 57x80 dimensions. But what I did was a lot of trial and error. Started with 65x65 per LarBrd's advice and that worked. But my pic is more of a rectangle than a square so I didn't think it looked right, so I just kept adjusting from that 65x65 starting point to figure out what would work and what wouldn't.
Start with 65x65 though.
