It will not allow me to upload a profile photo.
Please advise I tried to but it will not allow it. Good night I try to come back could someone explain to me how?
Sincerely,

There is a problem with this feature but I'm hoping it gets corrected when I upgrade the site.
Please wait until that happens before you try uploading a picture again.
The best way to upload a picture is to save it to a photo storing site on the internet.
Photobucket is a free photo storing site. If you upload your picture to that site, you can then copy the direct link to the picture into your profile and it will appear.
That method seems to be the only method that's working at the moment.

I'm trying to come up with a better option. In the meantime, I may keep it so that people can upload a file.
I'm also trying to find out why a picture gets distorted when you add it from photobucket or an outside on line source.

I have found that if a photo is not square it gets distorted but I've noticed some avatars on this board are rectangular.   I use 160 x 160 pixels.
