    not sure if I get it?

    whats the deal with avatars anyway??

    I am not sure if I get that whole thing. I have been in forums for years, and I have never understood why we need little pictures??

    Just curious...not saying get rid of them, but can someone explain the significance of them? I think a name will do?

    50x50 isn't too bad, but it does limit some creativity. A little bit bigger would be nice, 75x75 sounds good.

    Avatars let people show their creativity and/or personally.

    640x480 was sort of a joke, but 100x100 was more serious. It seems that 100x100 is the universally agreed upon value. As soon as I figure out how to change it, and clear it with the other Admins, I will make the change.

    For the record, my avatar is an image of my parts RX-7 doing a burnout in my driveway.

    You can only make it XXX x XXX not XXX x YYY. Based on the responses in this poll I set it to 100 x 100 with maximum image size of 40k. That should be more then sufficient for everyone! Bye Bye Bandwidth!

    Anybody who is good with graphics keeps the file size pretty small. I was amazed with the 20K limit for the 50x50 even my long animated gif was about half that. If anyone needs file size shrunk let me know.
