    Increase avatar size?

    I feel that 50x50 is way too small. My preference is 100x100. What does everyone else think?

    Anything bigger than 50x50 would be great. Bigger the better I say.

    It would be really nice if we could use Flash animations as our avatar, but I doubt that would be possible without recoding the board to allow .SWF extensions.

    Flash drags down slower systems too much. Flash animations bring my P90 laptop to a crawl...Imagine if there were 10 flash avatars on a page...ouch.

    100x100

    I agree with 100x100, I mean I don't know if it was intentional, but I can't even tell what your avatar is Aaron.

    i have sized my avatar in the different sizes of question to give a representation of the sizes.

    I use the current one because 50x50 is too small.

    50x50:

    100x100:

    640x480:


    I think if you allow a 640x480 people will use their discretion...i think mine would look best at 200x200 but i also think a 640x480 is unreasonable. Im just saying that it would be nice if there were no constraints .

    70x70 (or 75x75 to make it a nice round number ) would make a nice size, or 100x100 would work too.


    and arrons icon looks like an import (knowing his rx-7 fetish, an rx-7 wouldnt be too much of a stretch ) doing a burn out
