Daffy, didn't you have the same problem recently? How did we fix that again?

Make sure the link always ends in .jpg .img or .gif. Also http instead of https. Also make sure the site you're getting the image from isn't private or password protected.

Did you adjust the pic size to the limits given? I'm grasping for straws here, I know... If all else fails, contact James!

I've been playing with it. What's the size you guys use often? I also ran CCleaner last night hoping that would fix it. And if I need to how and what is the best way to contact James?

Sure.

Here's what I had before hand, which I can't even switch back to it now.

I am also experiencing difficulties. Same response:"The URL you specified is invalid."
Is there a preferred avatar creator website to be used with this forum?
Tried quite a few. Aware of max pixel size. Just every ulr I attempt seems invalid.
