Title: Avatar size too small?
Post by: tonev on October 31, 2011, 12:05:11 am
I was thinking why not increase the avatar size to 120x120 because 75x75 is to small
As you can see they fit perfectly

Why is 75x75 too small?

Maybe according to your monitor!

Honestly now, 100x100 would be nice, as long as it doesn't stretch it out for those of use who prefer smaller avatars.

At least be glad it's 75! I remember forums limiting pics to 64 pixels in my day. :o

And don't get me started with file sizes...

I'm not keen on massive avatars, but I think 100x100 is ok.  I really hate flashing animated avatars though.

I'm fine with the size we have now, but I can understand if people want slightly bigger avatars.

Fine, fine.  100x100 avatars are now enabled.

Does my avatar offend you then?

I was wondering why Homer got a little bigger today...

Errr, I'm not liking the 100x100. Scott Pilgrim is looking a bit large. I wonder what 90x90 would look like.

Yeah, if you're hosting your avatar elsewhere it'll do a sloppy HTML resize to get it to be 100x100.  If you upload it to the FW forum, it might handle the sizing better.

It doesn't offend me - it just hurts a little and is distracting, but don't let that stop you my friend, it's just my take on them.  
I'm used to the horrors of SRK when people used to really push it deliberately.

It made my avatar squarish...

Yeah, the old setting was 75x65, I think, so it would have stretched it into a more rectangular shape.  If you upload the avatar to the server, it'll get its aspect ratio correct.

What's SRK?  ??? Shahrukh Khan? Seriously, first thing that came up.
