You set the properties wrong.Find the properties of you image and then when you set the custom avatar change it to what your avatar is.Like my avatar is 120x 110x and if I set it for 117x 117x it will be stretched.

Probably because your avatar was greater than the allowed number of pixels. Try reducing the size.

You can see in the properties that your image is 121x222 pixels, while the forum allows a maximum of 117x117. You'll want to stick to those dimensions, since letting it resize automatically is always going to look hideous, even if it's scaling it evenly.

the forum allows a maximum of 117x117

The forum allows a maximum of 120x120 but the default avatars are 117x117
