    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.

    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

    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 )
