Default Avatar dimension and filesize limits

Avatar dimension and filesize limits
We have set dimension and filesize limits on new or updated avatars to be no larger than the following:

125 pixels wide by 100 pixels tall and no larger than 100KB in total size

We have had a size limit of 80x80 in the forum guidelines for some time. That limit was meant as a suggestion and was not enforced except when the image interfered with the forum template. Too many people have exceeded the suggested size limit and we are going to begin enforcing this new limit on all avatars currently in use. We ask that you update your avatars to meet the new requirements or your avatar will be removed.

This was originally posted on 9/26/05. All that did not change their avatars to meet the new dimension or file size have now been removed.

The original notification post is located here

Please keep all post in regards to this matter in this thread, all others will be locked and redirected here. If you need to know the URL of your removed avatar we can provide that to you, just ask.

Thanks

Please change your Avatar to meet the current 80X80 limit; your avatar is currently 125X87

Thanks

TX, the 125x100 pixels and 100kb is the true limit.

LOL.. OK.. I saw the announcement last Monday and shrunk my avitar to fit but I noticed there were still a lot oversized ones.. Looking around now, I see you DID to it last night

I'm glad you allow up to 125x100. That's a good size.. The standard 80x80 they use in other forums is kind of useless..
