The fora is too slow for some people as it is.... so I dont think theres much hope for this cause. :(

Please, Sir, can we have bigger avatars?

Darkshade:What?!

Please, Sir, can we have bigger avatars?

D: BIGGER!?

Catch him!
Snatch him!
Hold him!
Scold him!
Pounce him!
Trounce him!
Pick him up and bounce him!

Wait!
Before we put the lad to task
May I be so curious as to ask
His name?

:D

Nay, they are alright as they are. But thank ye for the Oliver! reference.

Bah! They are fine as they are! If I decide to turn them back on they better be nice and small :D

Plus even if I don't have them on, maybe smaller size will make people not want them and therefore decreasing the load on the server and increasing the CFC experience.

No! We just recently got them, let's not push TF's patience to far! :D

The Avatars look perfect at this size. I don't want em bigger.
many people who want things bigger and bigger are only trying to compensate for um... ;)

A bigger avatar would make my picture of Homer look better. That's reason enough to make them larger...

However, I won't complain. My connection can barely handle this forum as it is...

80x80 avatars are FAR to big. 1x1 pixel avatars would be great though! :D

:D :D :D :D :D

And change the requirement to 99999 posts :D :D :D :D :D

So once again people would be allowed a dot until they made their next post... Leave them the size as they are as most people don't seem to have a problem with it.

Away with the custom avatars and start using civ-avatars again. :D
No seriously, some custom avatars are quite nice but please don't make them bigger, it's the text in your post that counts not the image in front of it!

bigger??? 65x65 is just fine! TF was gracious enough to let us have custom avatars at all, and 80x80 (or bigger) is beyond our needs. (Actually, custom avatars at all are beyond our needs, but I like 'em. :D )

This we have right now is a good size. :yeah:

65x65 is all I need for my Mr Smith av, so I see no need for more ;)

Can't you resize it abit?

Portuguese
Sep 03, 2002, 11:54 AM
Yes, resize it!

Imagine how long it would take to load my internet pages if all avatars were so big as yours...

While we at it, why not have animated avatars? :)

pfft to download times I have cable!;)

65 X 65 is perfectly fine and what I seen used on most forums.

besides - you should be hooking Avatars/Banners into your signatures; it's the usual trick I use!:lol:

Eklektikos, where's your avatar from? It looks wierdly familiar. Oh, and I still want the avatar to be 80x80 :D

I think that is Jimmy Stuart, known best from ‘It's a wonderful life’

You said Mr. Smith, is that from ‘Mr. Smith goes to Washington’?

Keep them the way they are, we've slaved for years for these. Don't want to lose them!
