FYI: This info is a bit confused. The terms of service don't actually address avatar size. However they DO address user posted images and that applies to our party pics. The terms of service state that pics need to be 16 kb and no larger than 50kb. SO, let's make ScHwErV proud of us! Make sure your images are as small as possible, yet not so small as to lose the point of posting one.
I am trying to find out more about actual avatar size for us. I think that ppl realize when they come to this area of the forum that they are going to run into a lot of larger images. And I think that is exactly why they come here.(Ppl would rather look at pictures than read the words, ) I also believe that 21,209 views of this topic proves that point and justifies that remark. I have been working within the scope of keeping avatars under 100kb, which was the previous limit. Since the new software was installed, that number changed. The new rules for avatars state that an avatar can only be 30KB. And here's the kicker about that one.
It puts my ability to function here in SERIOUS jeopardy. It has been difficult to do the things that I have done within the confines of 100kb. To do it in roughly 1/3 of that is nearly impossible. IF that is the final word on what size avatars must be, I'm not sure how much longer I can be of any service here. NOT because I don't want to but because it makes it impossible for me to continue doing what I have been doing. I am terribly sad at the thought of it. IF you want this service to continue, talk to who you know, . Do whatever you know to do..............This is such a beautiful group of kind, wonderful ppl. I hope and pray this gets worked out. Cuz I sure do luv all of you guys.
Whatever may come, I will still continue to do my best to complete all requests that are made here. But if something doesn't change, there will be very little that I can do.
