[request] Larger Avatars

justin See Profile if it's not to much but can you make our limit for avatars at 50 x 50 pixels? 40 x 40 is too small....Thanks!

Re: Larger Avatars

If justin wants it to be square then I agree for 50x50. I don't mind even if it is 40x50 as long as I get 10 in height back.

Perhaps someone can explain whats actually wrong with the 50x50 avatars , so as to bring an end to this controversy and uprising , its gathering some pace at the moment and someone should step in to halt its progress one way or the other ...

Personally i think the 40x40 option is a little restrictive on the skills of the graphic`s artist and takes a lot of the fun out of it , which is in fact why they/we do it ...

50 x 50 is not that much larger and would look incredible. I do like the idea of completely square avatars but 40 x 40 limits what you can use without losing details.

40x40 isn't the way to go.

I doubt avatars will ever be 50 pixels wide; 40 is plenty.

As to increasing the height, they're shorter now to make room for all the user-defined customizations available now and discussed in this thread: »[request] I quite like this one

Those customizations were a result of many feature requests here. Is your suggestion to take all of them away to make more room for avatars? If so, I *object*. I can see a 40x40 avatar just fine, and think it is less important than other information in the box to the left of the post screen.

I'm having a hard time seeing where anyone has suggested that, fatness See Profile.

The difference in terms of space taken up on the page is actually quite small, but I do believe it would increase legibility in a lot of avatars. Keeping the limit to 5k would make sure the pages don't load slower.

I attached a 40-pixel square and a 50-pixel square to show everyone what the sizes look like in comparison to each other.

I *sign* to 50x50.

It's called a "question". I'm sure the original poster will answer it when he/she has time; you did not. Where will the room come from for larger avatars? What will be given up to make way for them?

The size difference is about one line of normal sized text. I don't see where great sacrifices need to be made, or huge revisions in the way the forums will look.

I'm not sure that jumping to the conclusion that all of the new customizations need to be thrown away to fit that in is really warranted. That would never have even occurred to me.

Perhaps instead of squeezing everyone down to 40x40, we could keep roughly the same area as we had and still make it square by going to 45x45. Or perhaps 50x50 can be allowed, and a new customization option added to squeeze them to 40x40 if the user prefers to see them small.

It seems obvious to me that a lot of users are unhappy with the new avatar size... I have received a lot of negative feedback about it via IM and people are posting a lot in the forums (not to mention all the new avatars). Just trying to work in the system to bring about change...
