I have broadband but not everyone does.

100kb is getting pretty big. And remember that on a thread that could be 25 different avatars when one page is loaded..which would make 2.5mb? And that is far too big for one page.

You should be able to resize that down to 10kb without a problem Cyrus. Let me know if you need help.
#3
thanks guys. I got it down to just under 30 but because its moving i think its not gonna go down anymore. Np, Ill keep my eye out for a static one :)

would be nice though it the limit was increased to around 20-25 as Id have a better choice then. Or how about let eh regulars upload larger ones hehe
#4
Could be a perk of having a higher user rank maybe...

Flame thrower is 500 posts and above. :P

True say. I wouldnt mind doing some matching ones for the board once I have some free time (1st July onwards!)

10k is good - please don't increase it. Although most people have broadband, people also use pocket devices to go online - some forums are a killer on a PDA when there's loads of large animated avatars and irritating animated signatures.

maybe an option to display avatars or not would make sense then. User would be given the choice to display avatars or not in their control panel.
but 10k is too small !
#10
10k is just fine, I don't want to have to turn avatars off entirely as it makes it easier to identify people. This forum is about the content of the posts, not your avatar - 10k is plenty for a distinctive avatar, it doesn't need anything more.

I agree with that [although I have an animated gif] :roll: But if there are bigger avatars, banners or images everywhere, it messes up not only how fast the forums load, but also distracts from the post content as you say. That's one of the things that makes HUKD one of the best public forums around in my opinion. No advertising banners to have to click on or unnecessary images. 10k avatars are good enough I think...

Admin might be changing the forum software over the next few months, so we'll probably get new smilies anyway.

Ok I concur - avatars under 10kb can be exciting.

lol nah I dont really mind , its an avatar at the end of the day and not as important as the deals. I just think in this day and age, 10kb is absolutely nothing and even if they are limited to 15kb then that means if everyone had one that big then its a mere 210kb to download avatar wise ! Thats pretty reasonable I say. I mean ... who the hell would use dial-up these days especially since broadband now works out cheaper.

Well... last weekend we had a power cut and dial-up was the only option for me, so it's useful at times ;)

:? How did you get your PC on if there was no power??

And to add cyrus... a lot of people still can't get broadband. I know that my brother can't. It isn't that important to have a brilliant avatar. Anything will do.

I used my laptop :D

Cyrus

lol do you have to be on hukd forums ALL the time
Yeah :roll: I think that's what caused the power cut lol...

Actually, it was a major gas leak and they had to turn off the electricity or I'd have become a Hot Deal myself :lol:

To be honest I think your opinion is narrow minded - broadband isn't available for everyone, everywhere. I have broadband at home but a large amount of 100k avatars will still slow down the page loading and it's total pain in the neck for PDAs and phones over a wireless connection, never mind a GPRS/3G one. All for a relatively pointless animated avatar.
