(FIXED) Did Avatars get BIGGER?

Postby wylieflyote » Thu Dec 17, 2009 7:09 am

Seems like the Avatars are looking bigger lately. True? Should I find a new one?

They did. Here's the thread that raised the idea: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=4623

I found the 40k size limit a PITA, because most of my graphics programs actually couldn't shrink it that small. Jeff bumped that up, as well as increasing the avatars some. Seems like it's been really well-received change.

regarding avatars, I tried to adjust the size of an avatar that is off site link sourced and it still shows up small. Is there a setting for those type of avatars?

You uploaded a 90x90 image. Take the original pic, resize it to 180x180, upload it, then link to that.

hey jeff,
the avatar I use is linked from my website.
The image I posted in the thread body is the exact same link.
See how it is larger than the avatar? not sure why.

First time I looked at the picture you posted, it was small. Now it's big. Hmm. Let me clear the website's cache to see if that's the problem.

Nope. Checked your user settings, and you linked to a 180x180 image, but set it to 90x90 in your avatar settings, so it was getting resized down.

Code: Select all
Avatar dimensions:
Specify the width and height of the avatar, leave blank to attempt automatic verification.

was set to 90x90. I've changed it to 180x180 for you.

You look like you're in pain in that pic. =)
