When I link to this remote avatar, I get the following message back from the server:
The submitted avatar is 300 wide and 300 high. Avatars must be at least 20 wide and 20 high, but no larger than 100 wide and 100 high.
The first issue is treating remote avatars the same as user-uploaded ones. Furthermore, if I do try to upload a 100x100 image, it tells me the maximum allowable filesize is an impossible 6.00kb.
I don't know how or why these restrictions came to be, but they're obviously much worse than the ones we've had for a long time. Please figure out what's causing this so I can get my avatar back. Thanks.
