    Default Increase the avatar size

    Personally I think that the Custom Avatar requirements for this forum are way too small. I think that everyone should have their sizes in both pixels and KB increased. I propose a increase to 150 x 150 pixels or 200 KB or if that's too big at least 130 x 130 pixels or 145 KB. Our servers should be able to handle them and it would give the users a lot of options when choosing an avatar.

    Im more concerned about the signatures. But an avatar size increase would be cool too.

    The my little pony avatars come to mind, all the ones that TM2 (I think it was him anyway) collected were too big and couldn't be animated when used as avatars.

    UP, for me. Yes, I'd be greatly in favour of an increase in both the dimension and filesize limits on avatars. Either 150x150 or 130x130 sound good; for filesize I'd recommend anything in the 200-250kB range.

    145 KB is a bit much for just 150 by 150 pixels. I mean, really, even an uncompressed 150-by-150 image, with completely random image data, would only take up a maximum of about 65 KB.

    I'll agree to 150 by 150 with a limit of 25 KB. UP.

    (200 to 250 KB is for images that are, like, 500 by 500.)

    *edit* Oh, you want animated sprites. In that case, 250 KB sounds reasonable.

    Animated .gif files could be bigger.

    Animated GIFs aren't always so small. I have over 100, and most fall in the 150-300kB range. The current filesize limit is 97.7kB; I don't see why we'd decrease that to 25.

    Sorry, I misunderstood the post. Yeah, if it's animated, then a limit of 250 KB sounds good. I edited my previous post to reflect that. >_>

    I'll vote this UP. I've got a bunch of gifs I would've used as my avatar but they were too big and resizing them ruined the quality.

    UP. Choosing an avatar would be easier and we'd have more options for it.

    UP, for all the reasons above. I think some moderators can have bigger avatars anyway, correct?

    Not that much bigger. Mine is 115 x 115 max (I think)

    But yeah, I have many pics that I could use for my avatar that are just a bit too small when resized.
