Default Can't add custom Avatar..

Sorry if this is the wrong section, I'm a veteran to boards, so I think this would be OK here..


I've been trying to add the AMD Phenom logo for my avatar, and nothing seems to work... I've tried saving and uploading, and even copying an image location..

No workey... Do I need certain permissions, user status to do it??

I've noticed a couple other newer users saying they couldn't add a new avatar when it was over the size the of the required specs. vB wouldn't downsize it automatically and it worked once they cropped it to the proper size.

Yeah it's fixed for us mate. We're allowed 120x120. It's for newcomers that have 80x80 and possibly the long term users with 100x100.
