Right, if it's that little video clip, then it won't work as an avatar, because it's the wrong shape. You want something square, or to re-shape something until it's square.

A.H - Future tip, when you see a picture & you want to know how many pixels it is, right click on the picture & select 'Properties' & it will tell you. If you upload it to Photobucket you can size it down.

Also, Pictures do not have to be square. The pixel height & width is measured at is widest & tallest place so it could be zig zag as long as its no wider or taller than 100pixels.

If you're trying to make it your avatar, you dont need the brackets.

You just go up to your profile & in the slot where it asks for the URL, you just paste this in it-
