Avatars

We have made a change in avatar sizes.  They are now set at 100 pixels by 100 pixels.

As such, you may need to reinstall/reupload your avatar image as the old setting was very small.

Please visit your Forum Profile and address this issue.

In advance, thank you for your patience as we work behind the scenes to make Friendly Chatting the best it can be for you, our loyal members!

Methinks uploadable avatars are at 145 since that's what mine is showing. And yes, I did clear my browser.  :P

It is corrected now. 

The sizing was set but evidently the GD wasn't resizing as expected.  I switched it to javascript resizing.  I noticed your avatar resized properly.

Just a reminder that we tweaked the avatar settings and, as such, you most likely will need to upload your avatar again.

The default size is 100 pixels X 100 pixels.  If you use a larger image, it will automagically be resized to 100 x 100.

If you use a smaller avatar . . . well, it will stay tiny.

No one wants a time avatar, do they?

So, find yourself an amazingly, awesome, and unique avatar that is at least 100 x 100 and let's get that profile updated!

NOTE: if you are looking for that perfect image, if you use Google and add a search operator for image size to your search term, you'll get the perfectly sized image.

For example, https://www.google.com/search?q=amazing+avatar+images+imagesize%3A100x100&tbm=isch

The above uses the search operator imagesize:100x100.  So, you enter your search term and then add that to the end before hitting enter.

Example:
Code: [Select]
kittens imagesize:100x100
If you put that into the https://images.google.com search input box and hit enter, you'll be presented hundreds of kitten related images that are sized 100 pixels by 100 pixels.

Good luck, happy avatar hunting!
