Re: An announcement about the new forums

I really like the new wider look, a very positive change.

As for the avatars, please discourage the use of animated graphics. They are EXTREMELY annoying.

Other then that, great work.

Re: An announcement about the new forums

Regarding RW's problem .. could it be that there is a file size restriction too and that you're saving it as a JPG without any compression --> over the limit?

Try finding a slider called "compression" or something like that when saving the file .. under "options" or "file options" .. can't really say where it would be without knowing the program

That or come online on MSN and let me do it

That's .. Vir, is it?

And RW: I checked, your avatars at other places are way too big in file size for the restrictions here. It's not a question of the measurements, it's a question of compression --> file size. I can explain in detail how to take care of that if you come online on MSN at some point

Re: An announcement about the new forums



Allowing people to upload their own avatars has been my best decision EVER.

Yes. Adapted from Londo, I think.

Re: An announcement about the new forums

While amused by the animation... I would still be inclined... to recommend against using animation in avatars. Slows down page loading.

And experience indicates: while the first animated avatar may be neat, seldom are those which follow afterwards... up to equal standards.
