I noticed the maximum size for avatars is 80x80. Which I think was the standard at ezboard. I was wondering if the PTB here had ever considered increasing the size limit, maybe to 100x100 or 120x120?

With all the bandwith problems Jenna has been experiencing?? I don't think that's a good idea.

Sorry, I didn't realize there was a bandwidth issue.

Benefactor members get slightly larger avatars - 100x100, I think. They also get more PM storage - 75 messages instead of 25.

Plus, they get that warm fuzzy feeling of helping the cause!

Yeah I've always felt 25 was a ridiculously low number, but then again who am I to complain?

I'd support AW, but as a minor I don't hold my own bank account or have any money of my own, so you'll have to wait until I become of legal age, because I've been itching to support the site for a long, long time.

The actual dimensions of an avatar isn't an issue. It's the filesize. I believe the maximum on dimensions is more for keeping the board layout properly aligned. The filesize, ie. 14k, is what affects bandwidth.

80 X 80 is the standard. all ego's must adapt to fit.

Are you saying the size of one's avatar is in direct proportion to the size of their ego? So if someone has a really tiny avatar, does that mean they suffer from low self esteem? :tongue

And what would that say about the people with butt avatars?

To paraphrase the dear departed Ronald Reagan:

"Well, Mr. Alleycat... there you go again!"

I won't reply in kind about those with cat avatars. Not so much that I have any restraint, but that I'm outnumbered....
