You'll have to make it smaller. I would try the FAQ page listed above near where it says USER CP.

Your avatar image needs to be pretty small. it needs to be max. of 80x80 pixel OR 32kb, whichever is smaller. You can resize the pic on either photoshop (if you don't have one you can download the basic free version) or Windows picture manager.

I use this program to re-size photos for avatars. Just download it to your computer (it is free); open the program and then follow the simple instructions. Avatar Sizer (free) Make sure to set the maximum size to the specifications that urmaniac13 said above.

You are welcome! I use that program all the time and usually end up using it on other sites for friends that still can't figure it out, lol.
