    Nick M: Max avatar size is 100x100. Yours looks like 130x100 or something.

    Oh...* looks *

    Crap!

    154.25 KB instead of the allowed 50kb. Maybe EP can set the limit a bit higher? 50kb seems a bit small. Then perhaps I'm asking for too much :confused:

    Think about the thousands of avatars stored in the database all roughly 50, now image the size of the database if they where all 150k which is three times as large.
    The limits there for a reason. Other than bogging down the DB with (sort of) large images, its also for the dal-up users.

    And just what is going on ?

    I think the dimensions and sizes that I have set are already very generous.

    hmm you got a point there, but 100kb as limit gives the dial up users a very good reason to finally get cable :p

    if £10,000.00 magically appeared in my bank.. I still couldn't get a connection faster than dial-up, and this is the case for many people.
    It's not a matter of choice, its the simple fact that its impossible.

    :huh: Service in some places is still unavaliable, which really sucks. Lots of places I really like have interenet access...but it's 56k.

    The only local provider is the hick phone company :p
