    Question Avatar sizes

    Okay, this has been bugging me long enough........

    What happened to our avatars? Is it just me and my computers, or have the Avatars gotten blown up to double (?) what they used to be? At least that is what it looks like to me.

    I ask 'cause it has been bugging me a bit , and I wonder if we need to redo the images.......that and it looks a little bit ....mm....amaturish (if you will forgive the use of that term) on a site that is dedicated to visual presentation of our work (not that my offering have been too heavy of late, more of non-existant actually)

    I know that my tone might be a bit harsh, but I really like this place and want it to always put its best face forward. I am sure that it is no ones express doing or intent, but I would like to either see it fixed or know what the new dimensions are for the avatars.

    K, that rant should get it out of my system.....carry on

    Thanks

    I hadn't really noticed it but now that you mention it perhaps they are bigger.....and what? You don't want to see a big ol' donkey every time I post? *lol* At least he's got a nice jacket so as to maintain his professional image

    I usually have a hard time discerning what people's avatars actually are because they are so small. Some of them look like they are really cool but I can't be sure. If the size has changed by double it would be good to know so folks can make sure their avatar doesn't look like 8 bit graphics.

    Arcana has been monkeying around behind the scenes as of late so maybe he tweaked something but if he did he hasn't let us know about it. Otherwise it's all the same old same old.

    rofl - No, it's a donkey I made sometime after I joined here when someone was talking about what should be in your wizard's tower. I said a Donkey butler named Seymour who wears spectacles and a long jacket. I thought it was funny and then someone said something about it looking like I'd just found my avatar. Thus, my avatar.

    Thought about changing it a few times but it always makes me laugh when I look at it.

    PS. Oh, and he's got an apple in his mouth for the NY maps challenge for the Soho gallery event.

    I thought it was a bathrobe, too. Sorta like the Hugh Hefner of donkeys...Hugh Heifer. Oh wait, that's cows.

    Well, either way at least he's clean.

    @Korash - Bathrobe & Lipstick? I don't even want to know anything about this....I think Ascension might know something about it however.

    PS. This thread seems to have inadvertently gotten hijacked. Sorry about that. But then again it seems like we've not only corrected Korash's issues with avatar size but also come to the realization that they are still to small to make out any details.
