proof that 100x50 avatars are ok

I was bored... And I had that "My image here" plugin... so I needed to make avatars for everybody else...

That's a better idea

Your not really adding anything height wise to the post because it's still capped at the 50. The additional width real estate added to the avatar only soaks up a bit of unused white space.

That's perfect! There's a bit of unused real estate there anyway, why not use it.

I threw all the 100x50 icons I made into there.
Using this firefox addon I've changed your avatars to look like this on my computer. You're welcome to do the same.
There are some extras in there, for the heck of it, if I didn't make one for you.

Why is the avatar size so limited? I understood keeping them small back when some users had 56k, but that's simply not the case anymore.

Anybody know what's up?

100x50 is a nice idea , as is allowing the forums to actually fill my 1280 by 1024 screen ...

Consider yourselves lucky that Bungie's Halo forums aren't the norm. Over half of all threads are locked within the first day, the format sucks monkey 'roids and the avatars? Well you have a choice of any of their pre-made ones (no custom avatars). It's forum hell, for sure.

Apparently your idea was a really good one, LuigiHann
One that looks acceptable and worthy of implementing.
Just not for everyone it seems, as I guess you intended it to be for.

Meh, I've had the same avatar in the 3+ years I've been here, I won't be changing it. Plus it's one of those that only works well in a square shape.
