Since the software was upgraded, we lost the ability to provide a selection of avatars to choose from.  You are now allowed to upload a small image as your 'profile photo' and a resized version of this image will become your avatar.  I liked being able to reward contest winners with custom avatars, and having users create new community avatar packs every few years, but there isn't a simple way to reproduce that functionality.  If you liked the old avatar images, you can still find them here. Feel free to continue using them.

 

Don't make me regret turning this feature on.  If people start uploading offensive or annoying images, or if people change their avatar too frequently, I'll turn off avatars completely.  Ice Nine has his finger poised above the 'suspend' button for anyone with an obnoxious avatar, up to and including album art from bands that he doesn't like. 

 

Edit: People who were previously awarded custom avatars for winning mod/homemade contests will be given small banners under their avatar indicating their award.

Are you getting a specific error message? I think the image has to be less than 200x200 and less than 1M in size.

That exact one, even if the image is less than both. I'll just use this stormtrooper one for now though.

Is it possible we have GIFs that are animated as Avatars? All the cool forums do.

I hung out with Ice Nine once, and he thought I was pretty cool.

That would fall into the 'annoying' category I mentioned, so no.  Sorry.

Thanks, it feels good to have my hook back. I haven't been able to use it since the days of Nrev.

Clearly not, since we don't have them.

Personally, I hate GIF avatars. They make pages load slower, and are just straight-up annoying.
 
 
But this is cool. Thanks for adding it!
