discussion > avatars ;)

yes but a discussion does this thing called "word wrap" where its not one long line. Wait, your forum software has a bunch of stuff that doesn't make sense, why not get rid of word wrap

I don't think that avatars should be done away with. They identify that user. Like how I would be identified with that running Mario. (I might change from it, though. It all depends on what happens.)

1: My avatar right now is 32x32. If I can't jolly well use it, I ain't jolly well joining.
2: Have you ever experienced a 200KB avatar? I have. It was very uncomfortable.

Exactly, Avatars make me remember people, when I think of florian, I think of a dude with a green cap on who you cant see. When I think of two52 I think of a huge blue gooba. Theres a news story I saw before about avatars for xbl, which should still apply for forums.

Post by: Florian on March 19, 2007, 07:42:16 AM
after seeing 26x26 for some time i think it really might be too small. i guess i'll go for 32x32 then. ;)

Post by: Neavea on March 19, 2007, 01:22:08 PM
dude... with 32 by 32 you wouldnt even be able to use your pic... btw is that you or some1 else?  :lol:  Cuz i saw your gmail pic and it looks different from that. Is your gmail pic the real deal?

why do u want to limit the size?

Will avatar resizing be included?
Title:
Post by: Florian on March 20, 2007, 06:47:28 AM
yes if it takes <1hour to implement. don't expect it in the alpha though.
Title:
Post by: zomby on March 20, 2007, 01:58:29 PM
Okay, I hope it'll be included. If not, I've to resize my avatar with Photoshop ;)

Post by: Florian on March 21, 2007, 03:48:25 AM
conclusion (although probably implemented after the first public alpha):

avatars will be uploaded at whatever-you-wish and resized to 48x48 as base size. blahblah will resize avatars to different sizes as needed. it works rather well for upcoming.org, where sometimes avatars are as small as 8x8 pixels.

although i don't plan to use that small avatars in blahblah ;) ... though if it evolves into an even more chatty application..... .... forget that ;)
