    Remember that a lot of our rules and such are in place to handle legacy connections/not-full-broadband that isn't all that fast. If everyone had 150x150 and a 300kb limit, you could force people to dowload 3 megabytes of avatars every time they load a page with 10 posts on it. That's a lot!

    Even for people who don't have speed issues, many people are bandwidth limited due to their ISP and I think we have to be sensitive to that.

    I'd be open to an increase, but I think it should be on the lower end of current proposals.

    (Edit: Adding, for instance, my avatar is 115x115--but only a shade over 20kb. And I think it's more than sufficient.)

    UP, to 115x115 or 120x120

    However, Moderators and higher shouldn't be that much bigger, if at all.
    130, 140, and 1502 for each rank is enough (sorry to spoil the higher-ups' fun, but this is how I feel on the subject)

    Alright, I've come up with this:

    Users: 120x120 @ 120kb
    Mods: 130x130 @ 130kb
    SMods: 150x150 @ 150kb
    Admins: 175x175 @ 175kb

    These are the changes I am moving forward with.
