Also, once an avatar has been added, is retroactive back through a person's previous postings, or from the date it has been added forward?
The recommendation is 80x80 but the system will attempt to resize the picture to fit. It usually does a good job but if you try to use a 4MB picture it won't work. Resize it down to around 500KB and let the system resize it.

It is retroactive. All of your previous posts will have your new avatar.
