    I just went to edit my avatar and saw this

    If that is true then great, I always thought avatars here were really small. IIRC the old limits were 75 by 75 pixels or 19.5 KB.

    i think the 150 by 225 pixel limitation is for the profile pic, not the avatar.

    Still 75 x 75 for me. I'd kill for 100 x 100.

    my avatar page lists the normal size.

    but i do think a small size bump woudln't hurt either.

    The truth has been spoken. That's for your profile pic.

    Oops, I am a total douche :eek:. You are right, it is the profile that is that size. Here was really hoping for a size bump :p.

    Yeah, I have a great animated gif I'd love to use, but it's too big. Oh well, they gotta draw the limit somewhere.

    I like them small and the file size limits annoying animated gifs. Some boards are riddled with them.

    (btw, I don't mind the flipping panda)

    This is the reason why, they don't want obnoxious avatars distracting from everything. The mods have larger tars so they can be easier seen.
