- Can't view that image because I'm not a member.

If it's bigger than 150px (width) x 200px (height), you'll have to resize it yourself using some kind of image editing program, like MS Paint or Photoshop or GIMP. If you don't have a good one, you can try or .

    As far as your question about advertising other sites, I've highlighted the relevant policy in the quote below:

  • Specifically Regarding Avatars and Signatures
    • Avatars can be up to 150 pixels wide and 200 pixels tall and, if a photograph of yourself, should not be nude. Signature images can be 500 pixels wide and 100 pixels tall, and the overall size of the signature box is limited to 120 pixels tall. Signature images must be uploaded to the wiki in order to be displayed.
    • You may link to your site in your signature as long as: 1) The site links back to us; 2) It is not a pay site; and 3) It is not a referral or affiliate link.
    • Please keep possessive notices, such as master and slave notices, out of your signature and other portions of your profile.
    • No more than one animated image in your signature or avatar at a time, please, and please keep it sparing. We may remove disruptive animated images in avatars and signatures on a case-by-case basis, or ban them entirely in the future.

The best way to upload an avatar I've found is to have it saved on your computer as a png file.  I use the second one Caeli linked because it's pretty easy to use.  If it's not already a png file, you'll have to convert it, which the image editor will do.

Then make sure it's the right size and re save, then upload from your computer.
