    Why when i resize my photo to make it an avatar for this website it doesn't work. Ive tried everything to get it to fit [​IMG] I'm tired of looking at a fish.

    Check it's "file size on disk" when you look in the folder in which you are keeping your avatar. That "size on disk" needs to be under 15kb.
