About the avatar size (not the shape!)

I think it's pretty darn stupid that even when we host our own avatar, we can't have it higher than 20kb.

of course, it's faster if you get it on your own hd, but since the script is designed to load the forum before the pictures, it can't be that worse

Also, I understand that it's also to prevent to have people making avatars of 500kb, but still a bit needless, don't you think? (why else bother having an option to get it from another side?)

Indeed, me being in an unbiased position, I agree totaly.
Remote hosting of avatars should be possible.

I thought ALL of the avatars are stored locally (on the MBN that is). I could be wrong, though.

I want my remotely hosted random avatar ba-haaaaack

And indeed, if you select it from your harddisk it gets uploaded to the mbn. All avatars are on El's machine, whether you point it to an url or from your hd.

I think there should be a limitation. But a minor limitation. The avatars should be limited to 75 x 75, and something like 100 KB. I´m used to boards like YaBB where everybody have large avatars and big signature images, and believe me, it´s hell horrible. But this because I have a 56/k 7.200/k modem emulator... as the majority seems to have broad band, I guess it doesn´t matter the pages are still visible, though they take a long time to load...

Avatar of 75x75 could be cool.
But I think that it's more important for us to have pictures in signture,it's so cool.
I know El can't put a size limit to pic in sigs but he can say what he want the limit to be and well...trust us.

Question:What is broadband exactly?I always thought it's Cable/DSL ?

Bomba: Broadband is not lame <=56K modems.

I think the limit has a point, althought you should make it larger.

well. 75 x 75 would be nicer indeed

but first the size of the space should be changed...
like to highly 40 kb

because we still need to remember that there are also modem users, and the forum should be acceseble to all


Sig picture? I don't know, I already hate it to scroll through long signitures

If that can't be done, then the filesize limit should be increased.

I've seen other board where you could have much bigger pictures and even pictures in your signature, and personaly.. I think it's realy ugly..
You will lose the overview and where the content is..

about external linking.. it's not possible the avatar system in vBulletin2 prevents that...

Damn, when is version 3 coming out?


Well, I agree with the signiture pictures, but I think the avatar can be a bit bigger (without having things like 150 x 90 or so)

El_Muerte-Bigger file size, not nesscerly bigger dimensionaly.
I agree totaly the avatars shouldn't take up to much space visualy.
And I am also against sig pictures.

50x50 is fine with me, though 60x60 would also be nice. Much larger than that would become ugly. An avatar is meant to be a symbol, not a whole photograph. (I know my avatar is a photograph.)

Too bad, I really liked external linking.

Sig pitcures were once asked by Jesse, weren't they? I think they should be the size of a regular text signature (height-wise) and not too big in file size.
