    I uploaded the image as my personal photo here and just copied and pasted that URL for my Avatar URL, I'm not sure if this is against the rules or not though.
    I'd appreciate a mod's input on this.

    Hasn't been mentioned AFAIK, but I highly doubt there'd be any problems with that.

    Well, instead of uploading the same image twice, you simply hotlinked the same image, saving bandwidth. Don't see why the admins would have a problem.

    Thing is, I don't think you can upload an avatar Image, all I saw was a place for a link to an image and I didn't want to use Imageshack or something like I did for my previous account here(long story, don't ask), so I'm afraid I'm wasting more bandwidth like this than I should be.
    But I guess it's not that big a deal.

    Ah, that explains it. You can upload an avatar, but is that 100 post upwards as well?

    I've had a problem with uploaded a Personal Photo before, as well.

    Try a ctrl + 5, and restarting your web browser.

    If that doesn't work, I don't know what to do.

    I think that users with less than 100 post should be able to upload a Personal Photo, but I could be wrong.
