Due to issues with sizes of some linked avatars, RJ-san has disabled the "link to offsite image" option... This means that a lot of avatars have gone bye-bye, and will need to be uploaded to AK's servers.... and you might need to shrink the avatar a bit to get it accepted by the system. Have a nice day! :D

On a side note about reloading avatars:
http://www.netmechanic.com/GIFBot/optimize-graphic.htm
This site will lower the data size of a file so if that was your problem, give it a try.
I lowered the size on mine. :)
Went from 27KB to 10 KB.

When you say "size" are you referring to the dimensions of the avatar or it's data size? I had an animated avatar which was well within the dimensional requirements but is 70kb. I assume it's not possible for me to use that anymore?

The issue was that one could link to an offsite avatar of any size... and by size, I mean dimensions.... so RJ disabled that function.... Unfortunately, that does mean that the nice animated avatars that some people had can't be used anymore... which is a shame... cause I really liked ShinBryan's avatar... :(

There are still quite a few people with 56k modems... an occational 70kb one probably wouldn't have been too big of an issue... but if you did get several together it could cause some slow down for them.

The current dimensions for the pictures are in place because the width fits perfectly in the forums without stretching out the frames and height just because we don't want it to get to tall and make each person have a super huge empty space at the bototm of each of their messages.

WHat about upping the avatar file size to upload to AK. 16K is kinda small. That means no one can have a moving avatar. I really miss my gunslinger girl avatar :cry:

well, I just mess around with the compression settings a bit with a good picture editor. But they don't always look the best, so I can see the point.

Yeah, but look how small(size) your avatar is compared to others.

O.o just disable sigs or images in your profile.

Also depending on your broswer you can have it set not to display offsite images .

I know firefox does this since thats what I use.
