avatar help

can someone explain to me how the avatars work around here? I can't seem to get any of mine to show at a decent size yet I see plenty of people who have quite a large avatar. I've seen large gifs used in avatars yet my plane pics dont work right. thanks.

Since the creation of the Premium Members user group, those in the regular user group can only have an avatar the size of 30 x 30 pixels due to permission changes. Those Premium Members can have an avatar of 150 x 150 pixels. The regular users you see with larger GIF flies used as their avatar probably uploaded those prior to the permissions change. Current avatars were not affected by that. If they were to attempt to change their avatar at this point, they would replicate this very same issue you are experiencing. If you absolutely cannot live without a larger avatar, become a Premium Member. There are lots of other cool features as well.

I believe this is the case. Correct me if I'm wrong.
