What is the max size of the picture that I can upload? Does Askbot handle it gracefully if I try to upload a bigger picture? I just tried uploading a 3.3 MB pic for my avatar and it seems that Askbot shows connection reset. Ideally Askbot should check size of the file and inform the user if it is above the limit. Where can I configure this?

I would say the problem is that you do net get a more meaningful error message, not that you can't upload large avatar file - no? Why would anyone want to load such a large avatar?

Correct. Limit is not evident and one could try uploading a large avatar because the pic is high resolution for instance
