OK, I get it, sorta.
What's the correct mechanism/format/markup ("Link off-site") to use my avatar in the CP now?

Thanks.

Short answer. Photobucket or other graphic hosting site.
My "off-site" url ended in .jpg
Other formats may also be suitable.

Site's been down a few days, so probably just a complication they haven't yet fixed.

Absolutely ghastly. I've seen better looking avatars at the morgue.

I can wait for a few to see if/when the anomalies get worked out.

User Control Panel > Profile > Edit Avatar > Link Off-Site

that will get your avatar back up and not dependent on linuxmint site completely.

Yeah, but I don't know what to "do" after that.
My Avatar should still be "there" since there is a "Delete image" checkbox which I am not gonna use atm.

off-site url responded with "It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image." on a 64x64 jpg @3.8K

Powerless.

you have a 5kb image, which is the placeholder image there. There is NO image of yours there. Pjotr and I have server space where our avatars are, and linked from there, that's why they appear. If you right clk on either and choose to "view image" you will see it's NOT at linuxmint. Anyone with image stored at linuxmint, at least for now, won't have it show. They may have lost all those too, hopefully not. Safest is to control your image yourself and link in from another site. May have to size it to 100x100 pixels yourself.
