    Avatar size

    I just uploaded an avatar and I can't seem to get it to be larger than 50x50 pixels. The thing is I don't understand how others have images larger than that. Perhaps it is just a new restriction that doesn't apply to old avatars?

    I haven't tried updating very recently, but the avatar edit menu does say this:
    The maximum size of your custom image is 75 by 75 pixels or 19.5 KB (whichever is smaller).
    Have you checked your file size to make sure that this isn't the issue? I believe the server will shrink your dimensions rather than down-sample the image if its file size is too large...

    It's usually a good idea to start out with this at the VERY TOP of your CSS: * {border:0;margin:0;padding:0;}
