    Is it possible to make the avatar limit higher or able to link an avatar from imgur or another site? I'm not sure how the software is, but if a moderator could tell me if it's possible with this software, that'd be great. I like having nice clean pictures. I would gladly upload it on imgur and share it here if it was possible! Thanks!

    Also, sorry if I'm coming off like an a--hole, just curious if it's at all possible. Thanks! :kissingheart:

    Hi, sorry for the late response, but I was having other priorities

    About the max entry filesize for avatars, I've manage to change to 2 Mb, the default was 500 Kb

    No, it's totally fine! I honestly didn't expect you to be able to change it. That's insane, thank you so much for changing it to 2mb. That is incredible. Just thank you :fearscream::love:

    I don't make gifs. I found it on the web. It's a small clip of Nicole from 'Buttons' video. And it's 1.92 Mb

    I've changed now from 2000000 bytes to 2097152 bytes
    2 Mb is the max my host allows for uploads in their PHP config settings, even if I increase in the panel of the forum in won't accept more
