I think if you re-size the original (from your source) then up-load that one you will end up with a larger image for you avatar. If you have trouble, contact Paul (Omicron) but don't tell him I sent you down the wrong path.........

My error. 80 x 80 was in effect when I signed up.

Was going to try a 100 x 100. Got as far as removing my 80 x 80.

Likely there is some corruption left over from the "crash".

Sorry, Oldsguy had to upload a picture for me with his Administrator CP. For some reason my User CP wasn't working properly. The picture we originally uploaded was REALLY big. Fortunately, Omicron resized it for me. You should have seen the avatar when we uploaded it. It was annoyingly huge.

Contact Paul (Omicron), he is the computer-techno-wiz-bang-super-duper-avatar dude.

Scroll down a little further on that page, Norm (see attached). Despite that, I was able to upload a larger file.

I didn't want anybody to get jealous about my avatar. I know it is pretty cool looking at such a large picture of an AWSOME car. Especially when you are just driving a Cutlass.

Actually, if Omicron wants to decrease the size of my avatar a bit more I wouldn't mind. Whatever works.

Has a resolution been found for this, or is it that we should contact the administrator individually? I too am missing the "Custom Avatar" field. Hate to see the administrator bombarded with a bunch of avatar requests...

All I can say, (for the fourth time), is contact Paul and see what can be done. His user name is Omicron. Forgive me if you have and he hasn't been able to help out or it is beyond his ability or he has just not done it. Dunno......

Mine looks just like Norm's. The green dot won't click off to be able to add anything.
