Larger Avatars
« on: December 07, 2007, 05:33:25 PM »
With this WEB engine used here there is a setting to allow our avatars to be larger.  I think it is vBulletin.

I think a lot of us with "older" eyes would really enjoy not straining so much to check out our unique pictures!

Regards, Foggy

Hi Froggy,

Thanks for your feedback. I bumped up the allowed size of Avatars a little for you (although this will only apply to new avatars, not existing ones).

In the future, we may be able to have even more flexibility with Avatars, but one of our design constraints right now is page width, which the Avatars tend to eat up as they get wider.

Hope it helps a little, anyways!

Yep, it gives a side to side wider view.

I don't know about everyone else, but what I'm seeing now is the same avatar size, with a scroll bar beneath the picture allowing it to scroll left and right. For my part, I'd say this isn't an improvement.....

I, too, have MacPro and X.4.11, but I don't have the scroll bar in Safari 3.04. I've just been over to FireFox 2.00.11 and the scroll bar is there. So I tried Opera 9.25 and there are no scroll bars with Opera.

I agree.  There is  some interesting stuff in the avatars, I wish I could click on them and make them larger.
