    Oh look...I have a problem already. I couldn't find anywhere else to put this, then again I never really looked...so since I'm here:

    I should now be able to upload or have my avatar remotely hosted on my account now, but when I do upload or put in the link, nothing happens. It usually gives me and avatar of a bulldog.

    It isn't too large either. Although it may take a few minutes to make its rounds on the server for you to use. Go back to your profile and reselect the avatar you uploaded.

    There seems to be a bug in the system.

    When you select a new avatar, you have to check that "use custom avatar" is re-selected. It seems once you upload one that you have the custom select shuts off and you get the default orange bulldog.

    The avatar is to big and it needs to be a .gif file.

    So try this one here.

    Yea it worked.

    Well I don't like the look of the avatar but I don't have to look at it or any of them because I have all of them turned off. :D
