Hi everybody,

i want to ask you to take a look at your profile and check your avatar and sig settings.

The reasons for that is that some ppl still use too large avatars (max size is 65x65 pixels AND 6kb filesize) - So if you could please shrink your ava a little if yours is too large, thanks in advance!

and there is also a new guideline about the signatures. This is to prevent ppl from having longer sigs than their message.
Please use a sig no longer than 3 lines. like this:

line1
line2
line3

if a sig is longer than that it verges on the border of being annoying - and after that it progresses into the "my sig is longer than my message" zone.

also: please use no images in your sig. Little smilie images are allowed though. rechterduim omhoog met knipoog

I have just updated the forum rules and all of this is in there too. I just wanted to draw your attention on it, so everybody is aware of the new guidelines (and preferably will follow them too grin )

I just have to ask this? Why is there a limit on avatar size for remote hosting?

It doesn't effect the loading time or badwidth usage of the forum in any way, as the loading will always be the forum, forum images, Avatars loaded from the server then everyone elses.

Just had to ask wiske

*sticks hand in the air*

"Please, Miss. May i answer this one?"


I am on dial-up. I get charged for the amount of data downloaded onto my PC. I also get charged for each phone call that has to be made to get me connected to the internet. It costs money to read this forum, that's why there is a file-size limit. Maybe if there was an option to 'switch off avatars' the filesize for avatars wouldn't be an issue. The physical size of the avatars are limited because we all want this forum to look pretty. We don't want people to have to scroll horizontally just to see the posts.
^^

"Did I answer correctly?"

So far 3 out of 6 of the avatars on this thread already, are over size limit.
Please read: Avatar FAQ and Guidelines

My god, that is the WORST ISP I have ever heard of! Time to switch? Netzero is good, despite low costs!

my god that is the WORST ISP i have heard of in my life.

My i have the name so i can perminantly avoid it.

Seriously i have never heard of an ISP with such ludicrus things. Of course you can turn off all images in Internet Explorer, but i would seriously suggest finding a new ISP.

As for the option to turn off Avatars PHPbb is the only forum i have heard of that doesn't have that option. Oh well.

Excuse me while i go looking gobsmacked at reality failure's ISP. (get AOL - so it's the most loved but a fixed price for no other limitations ain't that bad?)

Oops.
I get charged for excess bandwidth usage over my fixed monthly amount. I didn't mean to state I got charged for time online also, I have gone back and edited it so now it doesn't look so shocking...or does it?

Switching off all graphics is a pretty poor option, considering that's my online hobby.

I miss cable.
Dial-up is so restrictive.


Let's see those smaller avatars!!
Psst...if anyone want me to resize theirs, just send me a PM, I'd be glad to help.

Fey~

I updated my avatar! Here you go. I pass everything now. wink

In case you're wondering... I made that avatar myself with graphic program. I'm graphic nuts. Lol! reallybiggrin

Do you like it? Do you think it suits me or what do you recommend? Umm, perhaps I should post that in under other topic since this discussion is about checking. lachgroen
