    Recently I have seen a few blacked out profile pictures out and about, but I thought it was just the user choosing this. Today I found a new graphic that I liked and tried to upload it... bye bye HH, hello broken image!

    Maybe I, and the other cases I have seen, don't meet the requirements to change avatars, but I don't think that's the case. Does anyone know of a work-around or why the issue's occurred?

    It might be because of the image dimensions.
    Ever since the big forum update like 80% of users don't have an image

    They recommend 200 x 200 + and mine was 400 x 300, maybe I need to resize it, I'll have a go

    Edit: Didn't work

    Dude it has nothing to do with the resolution of your avatar. Its an issue with the board it self.

    Already informed the site owner about this so be patiente it will be fixed as soon as possible.
