File Size Q

    OK. I know it's silly, but I was wondering what the possibility would be to look into presenting the idea for consideration before a commitee to examine the particulars of the logistical implications of increasing the allowed file size for avatars? I think it's a bit on the wee side. Any thoughts? Any anecdotes?

    Hey, I thought that was something that was going to accompany the whole upgrade, new skin thing! Did I imagine that, or had there been talk about a slightly larger avatar size back then? I know I had a hard time squeeeeeeshing the image I used into a small enough file size (even when it was already 64 x 64 pixels and down to a resolution of 72 dpi, I had to fiddle with re-saving it in different programs to make it shrink even further).

    Wow. I didn't think I would have had any support on this one. Cool.

    I remember Greg saying that they would be 100 x100 I believe, definitely bigger.

    Okay, that's what I had stuck in my mind too, so if we both remember the same thing, we can't have both imagined it, right?

    You have to forgive them, Monique. They're men. They still think size matters!

    I'll support you so that when I finally get around to sorting out my bank account and getting a debit card to contribute, I can have a gigantic avatar.

    I'll throw my support behind 100 x100 avatar pics, which is the same size as the profile picture. That probably means tinkering with the public profile template though.
