How do you display avatars in their original aspect ratio, not this 100X100 deal?

There seemed to be a few problems with that, but signatures and avatars now work

I think they have to be 100x100, it scales them up and down otherwise. Hopefully they change this, makes most of the avatars on the web look awful. You could add some transparent pixels to the top so it doesnt stretch. Send me your avatar if you don't know how to do that.

I would say because it's directly linked to a Google search.  I checked the properties of your av to find it.  I would suggest using this instead:

http://img227.imageshack.us/img227/2865/tiptopav6yp.jpg

I saved your av image and then uploaded it to www.imageshack.us.

It is an image hosting site and doesn't have problems going down a lot.  I would avoid linking to images you find on the net without saving them to imageshack or another similar site beforehand.  Otherwise, the site you are linking too can be nasty sometimes and see someone is stealing bandwidth and swap it for porn or something else.  Plus, they are unreliable in not producing the lovely red X.

How do I change my avatar?
Click on MY EMPIRE in the top lefthand corner, then MY DETAILS and about halfway down you will see the option for an avatar. If you have the URL of the image you want, put it in the appropriate box. If not then select the option you require.
