Hi Alex,

Getting back into the site. I seem unable to update my avatar and header image. Something I'm doing wrong? I'm following the size guidelines.

I tried updating mine and it did require a local cache refresh (press CTRL+F5). I also pulled up your profile and see a city background and a new card AoS profile pic for you so it's probably just your local browser still caching the image for you on your end.

Yes. Realized that late last night. Ugh. As an IT professional, I don't know how that one slipped by me,

Long day...

Nate, do you know what the dimensions should be for the header (background) image so it doesn't appear distorted? I can't quite seems to get it perfect.

If you play with your browser window size you will see that unfortunately that is one part of the site that is dynamically adjusted. Meaning it will stretch to fit the window in all directions which it really should not in my mind. I would suggest trying to take your image and expand the canvas area so that the image itself is smaller inside a white frame/background. That way maybe on most screens it will stretch less the main image.
