    All

    We are considering altering the spaces for avatars to increase content size on the forum. We have two options:

    1. Making the avatars smaller, and moving them next to the poster's name in the red bar
    2. Removing the avatars all together

    I'll update this thread once we have considered all the possibilities.

    Thanks.

    I think the best option would be to decreasing the size of the avatars, I think we should keep them because it is like a characteristic of a poster.

    For avatar size, may be it can be reduced to 100 x 100 pixels instead of 140 x 140...

    100x100 seems the logical solution here.

    Don't like the idea.

    I have no problemo either way, but it would be nice to keep it and reduce the size to 100x100 pixels, Jon.

    ps. will the 24.1kb limit also be reduced as a result of that :?:

    With all due respect, Schemes, you're not really in a position to like or dislike anything here.

    To be honest, I think people are complaining about nothing. Sure the current format isn't ideal but the need for advertising revenue justifies this change. I think once people get used to it, they'll see it's not that bad.

    Personally, I'm happy with the way things are and would prefer avatar size to stay the same.

    I'd prefer it if they were made smaller rather than completely eliminated all together. I feel as if the avatars help give the poster some sort of identity, and it makes posters easier to recognize in threads.

    but of course this isn't my call, so do as you please. Just giving you my opinion.

    One other option we're considering, in light of your demand for more space for content, is to only make avatars available for Favoured Members and above.

    Still, all being discussed.

    If it's for the best of the forum, then please go ahead.

    This.

    Should also stop the cruddy avatars we see such as tennis players etc...

    I feel the site is fine now as is.

    I think 100x100 would be a good enough size. If you're going to include it in the red bar i think it would have to be a little smaller though. I guess all you can do is play around with it and see which looks better.

    I am confused.

    Why is our posts taking so little space on the screen?

    Edit: nevermind, I just read the thread below, I suppose smaller avatars is the way to go.

    Excuse me, but I'm new here and I'm not a native English speaker, so I'm not able to understand how could I choose my avatars and what can I do for it.
