Most phpBB forums support 80x80 sized avatars. This one is set to 64x64, was there a reason? As you can see, my normal avatar is too small to read at this size while it is legible at 80x80...

I'm expecting its a size concern, which I'll understand... but there is the possiblity this was set up in error, in which case I'd love to switch to the 80x80 version. :)

It has always been set up that way. I'm sorry yours is illegible, but I don't think that's enough reason for me to up the limit.

That's fine. I was just not sure as it is not set so small on other sites. No worries. (Your's is illegible also though, fyi.)

The text wasn't really the point in my avatar - it's the giant non-threatening/helpful smile. :)

No problem. I've been a moderator too, to not be would be hypocritical. :)

exactly, i'm a forum admin too but my forum has far less users so avatar size isn't a real problem...

simple way around this is to just allow hotlinking of Avatars from peoples personal sites, eg Yahoo! Geoturds, Google heres my e-mail pages,

and don't allow them uploaded to your own server just have a decentish selection of gallery avatars

i only have a big forum on my lan server so size is something i've never worried about same with bandwidth

80x80 is the generic standard of avatars in 7kb of space from majority of forums
