Would it be possible to allow for 60 pixels by 60 pixels avatars? 50 is too limiting?

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.

Where would you change the image tag?

by the way, I do have a slower connection

I once had a Cable connection (really nice though), but it was too expensive, so we now use ISDN, wich is 128K, not THAT bad, but my Terminal Adapter BLEW UP, I really mean it, and with smoke and everything.

So I now have to use a 19200 modem which connects at 14400 bps, and it says it downloads at 9600 bps, but I really can't get more than 0.5 k/s

ARRGHHHHHH

I would like 60x60, my original image was 60x60, so I had to resize it and it's now 50x50 and it looks like hell (well, I stil like it :) )

but they have to put a limit, because if they made the maximum size 60x60, some people would like 70x70 avatars, or even more

Hey, oskilian, I like your avatar. Very unique. I think 50 x 50 is fine. It fits my image good. Although I did have to cut off a little.

Just one more thing I want to share...

Hey, all of you of this thread. Go to the C board and look at the thread entitled "Interesting little exercise...". There is this Unregistered guy that is attacking me. I am just trying to help and he is critisizing me out of no where. Can I get a mod here to do something?

Garfield

Never mind. A false alarm. He was just sticking up for me. I feel stupid.

I just got a little defensive. I think I may be slightly paranoid.

You always say "I feel so stupid". Too much for your own good Garfield.

What does that mean? I don't understand.

What I am implying my friend, is simply that when you say "I feel so stupid" it is of detrement to yourself. Linger not on your faults, but on your strengths.

Ahhh, I understand. I'm actually quite intelligent. Thanks, Evenflow.
