  1. I have an avatar I'd like to use, its 32x32 and 4k in size. When I go to change my avatar though it says its not a valid gif or jpg check to ensure that it is.
    Anyone else had problems with a custom avatar?

    Try copying the image, and pasting it into a new .jpg image, with whatever image program you use. I've encountered this many times before...Getting the one I have now to work was really a pain :dead:

    Tried that. It was originally a gif so I made it a jpg. Same problem.

    Worth a shot :rolleyes:

    Create a new .gif and copy+paste in there then...

    Perhaps it's a .gif in a .jpg body, and it doesn't like it ;)
