Maximum dimensions; width: 120 pixels, height: 120 pixels, file size: 200.00 KiB.
I get that this is supposed to feel old-school... But 120x120, isn't that quite small? I've already got a 200kb version of my avatar from other old forums, but not such a small one. :P

The limit is 120x120 to properly fit with the left user pane width (~134px, ignoring post table border padding on the left). Putting larger avatar is useless since it will get downscaled and blurry anyway.

Basically, there's no need to have anything larger than what you currently see on my post.

You can open the picture in a new tab, though.
I don't mind if people can view the Piwi pictures in higher quality without going through other means. :P
But I suppose if I keep using this site, I'll also create a 120x120 version every year... ;)

Is it even possible to create an image that is 120x120, but exceeds the 200kB limit? :P Even as a bitmap, this picture was less than 50kB...

First double post in the history of this forum :P

You could try to upload a gif that exceeds the size limit.

I'm proud. 8-)
Also, I suppose you're right! I didn't think of animated gifs being accepted.
