    You might want to send a pm to Brian. I'm sure he'll be able to help you out.

    the problem is its 99 pixels wide and the limit on smf is 80x80. yo need to make it smaller.

    I have no idea what is going on with this... This is unusual for this to be not working for this long...

    I get the same "invalid file" message when trying to upload a GIF that's 75 x 75 pixels and just over 1Kb. I even tried all other formats and same error message. It's probably toward the bottom of Brian's list since it's not a critical component of the forum. I also see that we're back to the stock "vbulletin" image at the top of the page (not that that's a big deal). I'm glad we have the forum back up though - even with the losses and all.

    I don't know what is involved but I would trust Brian to get things back to normal, he has my trust and confidence.

    The avaitir is no biggy at this time.

    Let's have some paitence while the site is being restored.

    This coming from a member not a moderator.
