    Okay, now I'm stressing about only being able to pick one avatar.

    Not a problem....

    That is a handy site....though I'm still messin' with it to make images look more realistic....I had done a self pic on there but til it was resized I looked like I had taken the pic in a funhouse....face was all stretched....I'll figure it out eventually

    About the Avatars...

    I understand keeping them smaller in pixel size, so we don't goof up forum display, but is there any way to bump up the actual file size limit a little? I've got a nice animated giff that's 100x100 pixels, and no matter how much I compress it, the board won't let me attach it. A little more allowance might let folks have some real fun with the feature.

    Thanks!

    Two thoughts:

    The current file size limit is 30k. Assuming everyone hit that limit, that could bloat page size downloads to 1/2meg each, just on avatars alone. Is this slowdown acceptable?

    Second: on another forum I used to run, we eventually banned animated gifs as being too distracting. Not sure that we'd have the same problem here, I suppose we could try and see if anyone complains.

    What do people think?

    Can you email me the uncompressed gif (or photoshop file) in email?

    Ah, good point about the page size - it's nice to have the board so responsive after the move. And you're most likely right about the distraction, as well. If we all use 'em, it'll start looking like vegas at 4am after a good bender.

    Saw your offer to help on the other thread. Thanks for that. I'll stick with static files and just change them often.

    Nebbermind...LOL!

    It looks great, that would make for a great avatar, but switching off with the photos will be nice too.
    They all look great.
    I am the winner in any event.

    Is this thread put in the Questions forum yet? It would be great to put it there to be able to find it quickly.
