    Hmm, if there's a setting governing avatar sizes, it's not listed under "Avatars". vBulletin can be unintuitive with its menu placement. I'll try to find out what the current avatar rule is.

    The reason for asking is the photo I'm using now loses a lot of detail when it goes from 80 x 80 to 50 x 50.

    Thanks!

    When I go to my user control panel it says I can do 80x80 but it has to be less than 19.5kb.

    Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 50 by 50 pixels or 19.5 KB (whichever is smaller).

    Interesting, the one you have right now is 80x60. I'll see what I can find.

    Edit: What's more interesting is the guy who started this thread is just a spammer. Nothing malicious or inappropriate, but a spammer none the less.

    Here's a screen grab of my "Edit Avatar" window:



    Re the spammer, I'm pretty sure I've seen that message before on other BBs.

    Avatar size is under "Usergroups". Who knew? Anyway, I made it 80x80 since some people already seemed to have that limit.

    If he's a spammer then why not disable the link in his sig?
