I would suggest you do something so that it's not practically impossible for people to upload an avatar. I joined the site a couple of days ago and had an issue right away but didn't have time to get into it. I have come back three times trying to solve the issue and have even tried a third party website that someone suggested on this site to automatically resize a picture but that didn't work either. Although I am no computer wiz, I am a pretty intelligent adult and I have resized pictures for the purposes of 'fitting' them onto websites before but this has to be something else. It's annoying and I hope you're able to simplify the process soon.

Nobody else seems to have a problem.
Resize to a JPG image. They have higher compression.

Several years ago, I used a Microsoft desktop tool to copy the image I selected from a website, i then used Microsoft paint to resize and change the file format to load the image I use as my avatar. This was all done with standard no frills Microsoft Desktop tools. In my case it was multistep process.

This just documents the procedure on Bowling chat.
