One thing that I noticed about the new board upgrade is that it's slightly more picky about the display of your avatar, but it may not be noticeable until you try to change it. This version asks you to specify the size of your avatar, and your avatar's dimensions at the time of the upgrade are stored in your profile. These will stay the same if you change your avatar, even though your new avatar might have different dimensions. This might result in stretched or compressed images for your avatar, but there's an easy way to fix that...

Image

Once you go to your avatar setup screen (User Control Panel -> Profile -> Edit avatar), note the circled feature where it's labeled Avatar dimensions. The new pixel size of your avatar must be specified here. If you don't know the size of your avatar, simply erase both fields and press Submit with both the fields blank, and the board will automatically configure it for you.
Presto! No more squeezed faces! :D

Let me also remind you of the underlined item in the screenshot, all avatars must be no bigger than 175 x 175. :Kool

Can any admins tell me what form of url I need to load an avatar? I have tried several from ImageVenue (careful to check the size) and can't get any to load. Perhaps it's the size? does "6KiB" mean 6KB? Help! :Bang

You have to use the Direct Link code in order to properly link your image (the code starts with http and ends with the file extension). However, Imagevenue does not allow direct linking. Image hosts such as Imageshack, TinyPic and Imgur allow direct linking, and all of them are quick, easy to use, and free. :Kool

If you are wondering what to copy over for the avatar, I've highlighted what you should be copying from the 3 sites HSF linked to:
