    Not a biggie, but just something to consider ...

    The website allows avatars, although I found it difficult to get one installed, and then change it. There seem to be two menu items for dealing with Avatars, but only one really works ... sometimes.

    Also, small Avatars at 100x100 seem more of a relic of the past with less storage. How much of a problem would it be to allow larger resolution, as long as the file size is under 64kb? I've got a 420x420 .gif that is only 6.5kb.

    Thanks for the suggestion - I've altered the settings for avatars and profile images now. You should now be able to upload a smaller 100x100 avatar which will display next to all your posts and then I've increased the image size available for the profile page to 500x500 - so your gif should fit :).
