Avatar size is no longer an issue.
Can some people please reduce the size of their avatars. Until we move to SMF
those avatars cause the page to enlarge and then go back to normal on every page load which is quite irratating to the eyes.1.
If the image you want as your avatar is more than 100x100 pixels then just download it to your PC.2.
Load it in photo editing software (Microst Paint if you want) and resize it 3.
Upload it to a free image hosting service (see a list below).4.
Once uploaded find the address of the image by following the avatar instructions (from FAQ thread) found below.Free image hosting: Momoshare.com

To get an avatar above your name you will need to first find an image on the Internet (please only use a small image). Once you have done this: right click the image, left click Properties, select and drag the text from the URL section and copy it. That URL will need to end with .jpg or .gif or .png to work as your avatar. Once you have copied the full URL address, go to your profile in the message board and paste that address in the 'Link to off-site Avatar' text area. Click Submit and you're done.
