Default avatar file size

Any chance we can get the avatar file size limit bumped to 20k or so, more in line with other forums?

We animate them.

I used photoshop for mine, but there are different tools to do it. Essentially, they're a series of images that are stored in a single file (GIF) and displayed in order as desired.

Look up "animated gif" and you'll learn all our secrets.

Harry,
We killed signature pictures for registered users a while back. It got quite out of hand and cluttered. People were putting literal banners in the signatures and it made the forum look horrible. We choose to keep the signature text available to members instead. That could easily get out of hand as well, but so far it hasnt been a problem.
