@realize

From TOS:

Quote:
Avatars: Avatars are 120x120 pixels and 5 KBytes maximum.


However, staff continually posts that the limit is 6144 bytes.

Oh, and some browsers don't seem to work for upload. Explorer is reported to work, if you have that.

@realize

Welcome.

Please report back. I'm stunned at how many threads we have about avatar upload failure. I'd like to know for sure what browsers are working and not producing the error message, so we can clear this up once and for all.
btw-I had no issue with IBrowse when I uploaded mine.

Well, we need to know if the size limit is that listed in TOS (5k) or what staff continually posts as 6144 bytes.(6K)
I hesitate to quote too many old posts about which browsers work and which do not, since most browsers have been updated since the posts were made.
It would be safe (since my avatar is under 5k and size 120x120) to test with -that- limit 1st, then report on the results with different browsers as of today.
