    IMHO they are just fine the way they are. But others may disagree.

    I wouldn't mind seeing 100x100 max. avatars sizes. Like I said in another post Horrordvds.com uses the same forums software and they run 100x100. It would clean alot of blank area, as well as giving people more options if they wanted animated gifs.

    Can someone post a picture 100x100 so I can see what you mean?

    100x100 and 15-20k would be optimal.

    It makes only a little difference. But I can support this for the rest of you.

    I'm content with 75. I only had one instance where I could have used larger, but the shrunken revision looked fine.


    Perhaps there's a way to place a larger picture into a profile. Users would have to find an image host, but it's a fair trade-off, I think.

    Journalists are mostly centrist in their political orientation. The minority of journalists who do not identify with the "center" are more likely to identify with the "right" when it comes to economic issues and to identify with the "left" when it comes to social issues.

    Doesn't matter, but a little change wouldn't hurt. I give my support for the rest who want it.

    I vote No, I think it'd be too big and distracting. I made up this 75 to 100 comparison graphic (attached) to show just how big a difference.

    20k? Even 7k right now seems a bit heavy when you have to load 10-20 of 'em per page, like 200 pages per visit.

    Not that big of a change JT. Not anymore then the ads at the top and bottom of the page make it slower to load. I doubt that making the avatars 25x25 larger, would hurt load times any. Especially when I have seen the 100x100 version in effect, and there is little to no difference in the load times. Plus since they are images, once they are loaded by your browser, until you delete your Temporary Internet Files, it's not going to be very noticable anyway.
