    Image and avatar sizes

    Bumper, is there anything you can do about the image and avatar sizes? Some of them are so freakin big they throw the normal width of a page all out of whack and the avatars are even worse. Some of them are way to big and have so much animation to them that it is like a three ring circus going on in the left side.

    Other than those problems the forums continue to look better and better all the time. :kay:

    We are currently being presented with some problems with large graphics and I agree that some of the avatars have gotten \"out there\". I am discovering some of the weaknesses with this release of XMB and will be upgrading to the newer version as quickly as possible. This version does not allow me to restrict the picture attachment and avatar sizes, the new release does I believe. I am also trying to find a good photo posting script that will allow us to host images that people can link to but I am having some \"issues\" with my hosting company right now as well.

    My biggest concern is with bandwidth at the moment. If our bandwidth limit is exceeded the website will become unavailable with virtually no notice. That scares me. :O

    All I can do is appeal to our members to avoid large graphics and avatars until I can get all of this resolved.

    Those really huge unsized massive photos are what throw the page width off.
