    Can't edit either!

    Damn another blunder. I don't seem to be able to edit any of my posts either!

    That'd probably just bug people... especially loading a page full of different animated ones...

    Who isn't using a 56K modem or above? Besides, if you go to a Flash intensive site most connections can handle it. 10 more pixels isn't going to slow things down that much or cause too many problems I don't think.

    Yeah true... I'm thinking more along aesthetic lines...

    I've seen some boards that have huge animated avatars... they become more important than the actual board itself.

    10 more pixels won't go that far... but I reckon it looks pretty classy as is...

    Yeah I know this is a trivial issue, but it would be nice to have just a little bit more size to play around with. I don't want my avatar to be this size...

    I like your avatar as it is. I'm not joking. I think it is the perfect size. Do you like mine?

    Yours is good except for the area around the Lion. You need to make it transparent.

    Why is the pixel height and width limited at all? Couldnt you just use the image tag to resize the image?

    Ex:

    <img src = "myImage.gif" width=50 height=50>

    Would not matter if you used the image tag to resize the image. The file size does not change, only the size of the image.

    but its not the file size that is the problem, it is the amount of pixels. you are probably saying, "well....those are directly related, so it doesnt matter"

    not necessarily...the amount of data per pixel changes depending on the format of the image....whether it is 8-bit, 16-bit, 24-bit, 32-bit, etc...and whether it is JPG, GIF, BMP, etc. If you have ever tried loading avatars, you would notice that there are two DIFFERENT warnings...one says that the picture must be 50x50 pixels or less, and the other says that the picture must be below a certain amount of kilobytes. well, the amount of kilobytes depends on the format, not the amount of pixels...so...the file size can always be limited, but you should still be able to just easily use the image tag with the height and width specifiers to display avatars...

    So we use the image tag, guess what every image is the size depicted by it. My avatar would look kind of messed up.
