Question Why can't I change my avatar?

This is really irritating me. I would like to change my avatar pic. And it wont accept website links. And it also wont accept an animated one, I have on file. And also when I try to upload off my computer, it says invalid file. WTF? I would really like to change my avatar, I used to be able to. Why can't I now?

Yeah I have the same screen, but like I said. I can't change my avatar pic. I have tried. It is verry frustrating.

Did you check to see if the file size is too large?

Yes it isn't the file size, it says invalid, or can't upload from a website. Or any animated images.

Where's the link you're trying to upload? I'll see if I can get it to work.

Oh, I can't upload from your hard drive - it'll try to search mine for that file. Do you have a url where I can get the pic., or will it let you attach the file to your post?

Yup, the file size it too large. The max. size for an avatar is 19.5 kilobytes or 19,968 bytes. Your new avatar is 65,555 bytes, so that's why it won't accept it.

I tried changing mine as well not too long ago and it wouldn't accept a weblink. I didnt try uploading a pic from my computer though. I know the weblink was within the acceptable size (both pixels and bites). I thought that was strange since I thought my current avatar is a weblink

Sorry, that one is still too big. 19.5 kilobytes or 19,968 bytes is the max., so I had to resize it. You like it?

Yes, it will work for now. Thanks for getting it to function. I like it because it has the vehicle, and robot mode of Bluestreak. Just wish it was a little bigger though. Anyway thanks for helping me out.

Hey Z Car Barbie, I found another pic of the same image. And it is a little bigger, but should work for my avatar. Could you change this for the other one?
