I would really like a cover image (image behind my avatar) but every photo I try to upload, I get an error message saying I need to upload a lower res image. Or "please upload an image less that 1500x X pixels" something like that

Any way to up the allowable pixels for a cover image?

I could be mistaken, but I believe that message is saying that your image needs to be two things:
  1. under 1500 pixels
  2. wider than it is taller
You should be able to crop any image using basic tools on your computer or even on a phone to meet those dimensions.

I haven't looked at the settings for that feature, but the reason I'm hesitant to increase the pixel limit is because a) it doesn't solve issue #2 above, and b) larger images increases the bandwith required to view your profile. Not a huge deal on laptops/desktops, but becomes more of an issue on mobile devices.

the viewable dimensions of the cover on your profile is 888x211, so 1500 pixels should be plenty.

anyways, not trying to argue with you of course, just trying to give you the best answer possible :)

Holy shit, sure as fuck after 6+ hours of straight bike polo.
I am now on the road!! I spent money on the luxury of a nice ticket to Old Town San Diego, from there I will visit my godmother in East County and then hitchhike up the coast to the East Bay to visit friends and family. It’ll be in time for my 19th birthday!
The feeling of finally doing this is fucking amazing!

OK, so, my pack is a military duffle bag that is somewhat old, and I'm not sure it will hold up to traveling across the entire continent; so I'm open to suggestions on the best (?) replacement to buy....Thoughts?
