I have to say, Frijid, I do miss your dancing on penguin's grave. Did you save it?

Regardless if he did or didn't. I would really really really not push your luck with avatars (that goes to anyone). If you enjoy having them back then don't abuse them.

Yes, I still have my 'ol 'Dancin' On Penguin's Grave' Avatar ... but I made a new one where the 'ol dude is still dancin' on the grave, but on the Tombstone it says 'Frijid's Contest'. :lol:
I'm reluctant about using it though, because some people around here don't seem to have much of a sense of humor. :? :wink:

Hmm I wonder who thought of that idea. :wink: :lol: Yeah I told Frijid to be careful about that. I brought it up in my other post here because I remember it well. But yeah I would rather we actually be able to have avatars. :)

I appreciate them. This is the first they've had avatars since I've been here, so they were down for well over a year. It's nice to have them back, though. Thanks Penguin, and all who were "behind" getting them back up!

I thought it was more like two years. I like the added colors, but 150x150 would be better with less distortion.

Yeah, these 80x80's force us to give up a lot of detail ... even 100x100 would be a lot better.

I agree that 80x80 is a rather confined space, and 24KB is a very limiting file size for animated avatars; but, don't forget that these things are supposed to be icons: not giant messages; not intricate masterpieces; just a little symbol to help differentiate you from everyone else.

Given that, why would you need them to be any larger than 80px?

While people would argue that these restrictions impede people's creativity, I think they promote it. You have this limited amount of space: what are you going to do with it? How efficiently and effectively can you use it?

I still like 100 X 100 minimum. It is isn't that much bigger, but makes a huge difference as far as clarity.
