Too large avatars

Postby Annapurna » Fri Feb 20, 2009 6:13 pm

Is there a way to limit the avatars to a certain size, so that they don't cover a part of the post?

Thanks,

A

I agree, there should be a size limit of 100x100 pixels. That is plenty big enough. Buddhists should have small egos, and small avatars.

You can turn avatars off in the , Board Preferences, Edit Display Options.

Dear Bhante and all

There is some information here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=26 on reducing the avatar size to what is 'optimal' for the board software. And I agree with the sentiment that a 'small' avatar is a 'good' avatar.

Hi Craig,

Your's is OK because it is only a little over 100 pixels wide (126 x 300). It's the ones that are 200 pixels or so wide and which therefore overlap with the text if you magnify the pages (by using "Control +" on Firefox or IE).

For some users I have to shrink down the size to be able to see the text... :cry:

I set the maximum avatar size to 150 x 150 px for all new registrations.

All existing DW-ers who have large avatars and don't want to annoy people, follow the instructions on to reduce your avatar's size.
