December 23rd, 2006, 12:37 AM

Sorry for the delay in answering that -

In general - If I do take too long to respond to anything, please feel free to pm me or email me at marko ( a T )

Bigger avatars?

OK. I'll try to set that up next week along with a few other things that need to get done...but have been slow to get done because of the holidays.

:D :D :highfive: :D

January 3rd, 2007, 09:09 PM
Yahoo! Thanks Marko! ...and I now have the perfect photo......:D


p.s. hey Scott B - you will have to change your title now! :goodvibes: :laughing:

Effective immediately avatar size has increased by 50% to 75 x 75 pixels.

Profile picture size is still 100 x 100 pixels.

Both can be accessed through the User CP which is the first link in the top blue navigation bar.

For now this is a test, but providing there are no issues that we haven't thought of...we'll probably keep it this way.

To check the sizes of avatars or any image on the web - if you right click on the avatar and click properties, you can see the dimensions. If either dimension is 75 pixels - it's at the max.



January 8th, 2007, 04:08 PM
ooo!!! :highfive: :highfive: Gonna go see if it works!

January 8th, 2007, 04:09 PM
YEY!!! :highfive: :highfive:

January 8th, 2007, 04:35 PM
It does work - but are they too big?

I think they might be:shrug:
These make every single post in every single thread quite wide.

Opinions from the members are appreciated on this issue.



January 8th, 2007, 04:37 PM
No way! I love them big! :highfive: As long as we don't have pics in our signatures, it'll be ok...

January 8th, 2007, 04:48 PM
Marko your kitty looks awesome in your avatar :) . I love them big too but could also live with them at the 1.5 size like the profile pic.

Woo Hoo! I got a big ole avatar! Watch out, here comes Jesse!!!!

January 8th, 2007, 05:34 PM
Great size avatars!:thumbs up and I have to agree with Prin, on the pics in signatures, I find they get super annoying. Lets keep signatures pic free!!!!
Thanks Marko!:thumbs up

January 8th, 2007, 06:04 PM
The bigger avatars are awesome....thanks Marko. :thumbs up And, your kitty is gorgeous. :cloud9:

January 8th, 2007, 06:29 PM
Oooooh cool!

January 8th, 2007, 06:36 PM
oh man... makes threads a loooot longer to scroll through now... lots of fluff to get to some text... i am odd person out, i think they are too big and clumsy (i'm sorry! :o ) I liked them the way they were before...

(retreating not to get stoned by people who like the visuals)

January 8th, 2007, 06:45 PM
hehe tiny dakotah doesn't fit...

January 8th, 2007, 06:54 PM
:( :( :( :sorry: and I have a favour.....I made an error.

....the avatars are too big at 100 pixels (large threads will be MUCH larger because of this rash decision) and a bit small at 50 pixels.

So in the spirit of compromise....avatars will be 75 pixels by 75 pixels.

For those members that uploaded avatars that are 100 pixels could you please reupload avatars that are 75 x 75? Please? The system won't do it automatically....

I will be doing this myself within a few minutes, despite how cute Ziglet (my cat avatar) looks.

I'm truly sorry for those that love the 100 pixels....but 75 pixels is much better (for navigation and load times) than 100 pixels.

Thanks in advance,

I redid mine and re-uploaded it, but it doesn't look any different to me. :confused:

January 8th, 2007, 07:09 PM
Yours works fine Jesse's the maximum dimension is 75 pixels.
Thank you!

Just 4 members left....again sorry for this trouble.

January 8th, 2007, 07:57 PM
wow you guys are fast - I was about to post about the new smilies...and here is a post already...Ok then I'll just edit the thread title a bit and do a two for one.

Thanks all!


January 8th, 2007, 07:59 PM
I like the 75X75 avatar size...100 was a bit big and 50 was too small. 75 is juuuuust right :D

January 8th, 2007, 09:15 PM
:lovestruck: I like this one :)

January 8th, 2007, 09:20 PM
I like it too, Mafia! It took me a while to figure out the whole resizing thing, but it's easy now that I know what I'm doing!

It would be nice to have a smiley that smacks himself in the forehead. Like a DUH one. :2cents:

January 8th, 2007, 09:28 PM
:lovestruck: I like this one

Matches Cider's scarf! :thumbs up

January 8th, 2007, 09:47 PM
Hey, Peep...I'll bet you could make that a little bigger yet! Still looks like the old 50 x 50 size ?

January 8th, 2007, 11:49 PM
Ok. :sad: I changed my avatar to reflect how I feel about this new development. :sad:

:D :D

January 9th, 2007, 04:35 AM
I prefered the 100x100, but beggers cant be choosers :p

January 9th, 2007, 06:51 AM
Ok,and then there was me:confused: I'll have to try to figure out how to do this:shrug:

January 9th, 2007, 07:49 AM
I missed all this excitement last night. Now when I go home I will have to redo my avatar. The new smileys are great:lovestruck: :thumbs up

January 9th, 2007, 07:55 AM
I can't get my avitar to load after I adjusted the pixels in irfanview. Wait, did it get bigger? I can't smilies!!!
:laughing: :footinmouth: :2cents: :goodvibes: :stork-baby:
:clown: <- Now that is one scary clown!

January 9th, 2007, 08:16 AM

Your avatar is perfect. It did probably get a bit bigger and is at the max since one of the dimensions is 75 pixels.

Chico2 - your avatar is perfect too.

If you right click on the avatar and click properties, you can see the dimensions. If either dimension is 75 pixels - it's at the max.


January 9th, 2007, 09:43 AM
Thanks Marko! I can't help but to crack up everytime I see that pic of Nicky. I just think it is Hilarious! :laughing: Also, I love your avitar, Marko.

Prin - By the way...GORGEOUS avitar :cloud9:

I can't tell if mine worked. Is mine the same size as everyone else's? It says 75 X 56 yet I re-sized to 75 X 75 :confused:

January 9th, 2007, 12:21 PM
Yes G.G., it worked because it's the same size as mine. Only one of the dimensions can be 75.

January 9th, 2007, 12:28 PM
Thanks Mahealani... It was supposed to be sad and disappointed because of the smaller avatar change...;)

January 9th, 2007, 12:57 PM
Thanks Mahealani :goodvibes:

January 9th, 2007, 03:41 PM
Thanks Marko for the larger avatars!:thumbs up. I think this is a perfect size, and made a big difference. Can admire all of your beauties so much better now that I can "see" them better. (eyesight just not what it once was):o

Mahealani.. WHAT an adorable avatar of your pup! That is just the sweetest!:love:

And new smileys too! This guy :clown: a "big" improvement:D
