That page is actually incorrect. As per our site Terms of Service, the maximum size for an avatar + signature combined is 16kb for our dialup users.

James, yours is currently 39kb and will need to be changed.

thanx for the notice ScHwErV. Is there anyway the site could let you know you limit, without having to look at the properties (if you dl the file) because mine is just off another site.
James

Edit: this'll have to do for now, till i find time for better :whistling:

Just noticed now why doesn't anyone have thier country flage anymore below thier information anymore?

If you find an image and its to big run it through an image editor(photoshop and the ilk) and you can save it to a smaller size i do it all the time most of mine are to big. The one i have know (a very beautiful avro vulcan most kick [bleep] plane ever constructed by man) needed shrunk a bit to fit on. And some need changed to look better at larger sizes, just look around find something you like and exemplifies you youll find pictures of pretty much anything on the Internet.
