Ok, here is a heads up for people.

Can you please, please limit your Avatar and Signature animations/pictures to 100K in size each. Think about these posts and from other people point of view:

  • Keep the browsing nice and fast for the other users. Yes you might have a 'bat out of hell' fast net connection, but that doesnt mean that people want to wait 40 seconds just to see a page, as it loads up your image... and then a 1MB sig image (yes we have had those)
  • Depending on your browser, some will load the image when it gets to it, others will load up text before they start doing the image. Now, again, if YOUR image is taking a long time to download you are just affecting the browsing experiance of other players. Size and speed please.

    There have been cases where a page has taken over 3 minutes to load due as someones large sig gets loaded up (yes even though i am on a broadband connection, sometimes even I get throttled back at peak times)...
1) I reject your reality.... and substitute my own
2) Not to be used when upset... will void warranty
3) Stoke me a clipper i will be back for dinner
4) Never tell Gangrel to do anything... he will probably get it wrong
5) I have seen more intelligence from an NPC AI in TR beta, than from most MMO players.
6) BLOG ME!

There are several image hosting websites that you can sign up to and use. I have used photobucket myself personally.

*whistles innocently, while replacing his unresized lolcat picture of an avatar*

It squishes my normal small sized forum avatar :(

WTB maintain proportions when it resizes.

Maximum size is 80 x 80. Am looking into the code to see what needs tweaking to keep "proportion" correct.
1) I reject your reality.... and substitute my own
2) Not to be used when upset... will void warranty
3) Stoke me a clipper i will be back for dinner
4) Never tell Gangrel to do anything... he will probably get it wrong
