I'm almost sure Steve has the record for consistently using the largest avatars on PC of all time.

Either way, this is actually going to staff discussion now, and we're going to iron it out as best we can, however if avatars were too wide, I'd have an issue. But they're not. You have unlimited vertical scrolling space, and what you're talking about here is chopping off about 20 or so pixels in some cases. Which takes me about 0.02 seconds to scroll through. This is something I actually do worry about all the time though, avatar sizes and so on, as I've studied web design for several years, so I appreciate your concern. I've just gone ahead an suggested a 200px x 200px size, as maximum, for any usergroup however. That's actually fairly non-intrusive, unless you're running a resolution of a potato.

We'll let you know what our final decision is. Feel free to add suggestions/feedback still however, we'll keep an eye on the thread all the same.

The huge Staff Avvies actually look really terrible on the Regular Default Post-Bit setting. But that's just my perspective. In general I have no problems with Staff having huge avvies, they deserve it after all.

Is that supposed to be current to now? Because I only have 1500.

    I never really cared about avatar size so I guess it's not that important.

    But I feel that 240x240 is no problem at all since a mod gets a perk for being a mod. H-Staff might stretch limits sometimes, but not that really I care. I use standard postbit usually and the vertical avatars fail to bother me. Since 130x130 is an awkward maximum size (150x150 seems less awkward because multiple of 50), I usually use 100x100 or 96x96. If it ever creeps my internet, I'll disable them. No big deal.

    Wouldn't all these extensions add load to the server? idk

At the least, the threshold should be 170 or 180 — whatever higher staff have always had, since those sizes were never really an issue.

      just a note, we do reconsider avatar sizes as well as image file sizes from time to time based on community input.

      We'll be doing this again shortly after we move to the new server so perhaps post up a few suggestions on sizes for each user group as well as files sizes you all would like to have available for your use.

      wait..
      who said I use the biggest avatars on PC?
      hmm...

      It was more math than I wanted to do when spending 2 minutes to write the code to do the resize.

      Okay, better math. Now resizes to 150 instead of 50% of original size.

      Okay I know I'm bumping this but I just decided to enable the resizing because two mods (Shining Raichu and XanderO) have avatars that were so huge they were breaking the postbit (I use Standard fyi), and the result turned out to still be 50% of the original size and not 150x150 as you said there.

      Just pointing this out because this was the result I got on my end.
