PLEASE - CAN WE HAVE BIGGER AVATARS HERE- OR ?¿!

Postby Petra Jane » Tue Feb 09, 2010 6:31 am

Would it be at all POSSIBLE to ENLARGE THE SIZE OF PICS FOR THE AVATARS on this site ?

A max. of just 10kb's is VERY TINY !!

And - MOST of my pics are considerably H U G er !!

Alternatively ¡- I have TRIED IMAGE SHACK TO TRY TO REDUCE TO A CONVENIENT SIZE - BUT THE SMALLEST I CAN GET HERE IS 24KB'S for AVATARS !!

H E L P PLEASES - SOMEBOD. !?¿!!¿? :roll: :roll: :cry:

B - U - M - P !!!!!!

Come on Mods - the new-look site interface is a great make-over...

COULD IT NOT BE FURTHER IMPROVED...

BY INCREASING THE ANOREXIC AVATAR 'SPACE' OF A mere 10kbs. ?

To something like 90 ?


PLEESE-Y !!! :roll:

Petra,

This isn't something that us mere mortal mods can do anything about. I guess the limits are down to JohnC and/or the site software.

PJ.
Your current pic' is only 74 x106px - you can go to 120 x 120.
Use the cropping tool that Tim73 mentioned to resize your photos........(his current pic' is 120 x 120).

Pics larger than 120px you can fit into the sig' area - I sent you all the info, or, just put a link into your sig' area to your web based photo library....the censored section :wink: :wink: :) .

Imho, the avatars are big enough as they are. And we dont need pics in sigs. Keeps the forum tidy. Not like some that have HUGE pics in every single post.

That's up to JohnC isn't it - he has already allowed sufficient sig' space for pics' that will not clutter the board.

You did, but have you considered that all the empty space around you current sig' would easily acomodate a 200+ x 200+px pic'.

No, I haven't. My sig is plenty big enough for me.
Just to clarify what I'm saying. I have no problem with yours, PJ's, Tim's or anybody elses sig.
You're right, it is JohnC's call, but in my opinion a sig should be a brief tag that says something about oneself, something witty or contains a link to a country music related activity or business. Like wildrose's or Irene T's sigs. Furthermore, it is not just me, there is an item in the forum etiquette on sigs.

We dont want this forum to end up like some that are out there in internet-land. With large pics as avatars and large or animated pics in sigs. And when I say "we", I dont mean I. I mean we, John. Dixie and I. Not getting at you, SC, just answering a question.
