Webtest is ME! An OLD Hacker! Wish I had an AVATAR ???
« on: May 23, 2017, 04:21:09 pm »

Esteemed Forum Participants and Lurkers:
I'm and OLD Hacker ... started with a VACUUM TUBE Bendix G15.  I'm active in Linux Mint circles running exclusively LOCKED LiveMedia systems (NO HARD DRIVE!).  That way I never have to worry about malware corrupting my system.  I have an Avatar that I normally use, but I can't upload it on this forum ??  It is a JPEG, 5210 bytes, but I keep getting the following error message:
The following errors occurred when trying to save your profile:
    The avatar you have selected is either too large or not an avatar.

I looked at a few other avatars ... JPEG, PNG, GIF, some as large as 8kb - what's wrong with mine?

This is my first post to Vector Linux! Thanks for any and all comments, suggestions, and assistance ...
Blessings in abundance, all the best, & ENJOY!
Art in Carlisle, PA USA
Running Mint LiveMedia 13/15/17.2 64-bit Mate on LOCKED USB Kanguru drives and LOCKED SD cards.

What are the physical dimensions of the image? That may be what the "size" issue is referring to.
