I keep trying upload my photo to replace the generic avatar but keep getting a message that my upload exceeds the size limit. I have reduced the size of my photo down to 32Kb and it still gives me the same message. Am I doing something wrong or is this some sort of bug?

Hi Chris,

All avatars are pulled from a site called Gravatar. You can upload your gravatar here: ** you don't have permission to see this link **

FYI - this is called out in the general forum rules & info, but maybe I need to make it a little more obvious. I'll take care of it.

If you always want to direct people to use gravatar, we should probably remove the photos that are in the profiles.  I think I've now worked around the issues we were having with the user-photo plugin, but there are some things that are still a pain.

We have maybe a hundred users who have uploaded profile pictures to our site, rather than to gravatar.
