Default Avatar won't upload

I have tried all kinds of formats. Image is 120x120 px. Tried jpg, tif, gif, bmp, no luck. Tried saving with different image editing programs, no luck. Is it brokled, or am I just unlucky. For the record, I have been working with graphics for more than 15 years, so I am fairly sure I am doing it right, but I suppose I could be doing something wrong?

Edit: The message I get is "Invalid File" when I click the "save changes" button. The file opens in several different apps that I have without issue.

I could be wrong, but I don't think you can upload avatars (or any pix) to the site...I think you have to host the file somewhere else, and then point to the address when you want it to show up.

AFAIK.

hey all,

I just checked the back end, and you are not able to upload attachments or avatar pictures. you are however aloud to upload a picture to your signature and an animated one as well.

Im not sure the reason behind this, but im pretty sure there is a good reason for it.
If you want to inquire more, i would consult the new comers area, FAQ, or ask a mod here about why that is. Im sure you will get the answer you need.

All avatars were set to store on the serer before the site was turned over.
I'd check on the VS side to see if they changed something. Considering you've had the site for 2 years, and this if the first we've heard of it, my guess, again, only a guess..... it's a Chair to KB interface issue.

What size is the file?
Not dimensions, but file size?

Avatars will not load unless you look EXACTLY like them IRL.

I tried numerous formats, so they were slightly different in file size, but they mostly averaged around 6k, far smaller than the 140 something k max stated on the upload page.

Here is an example:

I have also tried to link to it (one of the options on the avatar editing page) and that gives me the same exact error: Invalid file
