I believe there to be some issues with the forum software itself. I would venture a guess the images folder are not set to 777 chmod like they should be, so you will not be able to upload avatar images.

You will have to remote link it, meaning upload it somewhere else and then use the URL to add your avatar. Sorry for any inconvienence.

I forget the exact specs, but the first time I tried to upload it, it gave an error saying it was too large, so I downsized it and it switched to the above error. So I'm assuming size isn't the problem.

Yeah there are some definate issues with the forum, unfortunately there is nothing I can do as I do not have that sort of access. I will PM the admin though. Hopefully this issue will be resolved quickly. Thank you.

Ok well it let me upload my avatar which makes it odd you are having troubles. Post your avatar link and I will try and upload it for you.
