Half the board is still using the little mangled avatars from Hick's brief layout experiment.

Is it that there's something hugely important about the avatar and you can't recreate it? Or are you just too lazy? :flirt:

I'm happy with my avatar...along with many other PD posters ;)

maybe some of us are more secure with our avatar size than others and feel that we don't need to compensate by making it bigger...

Hahaha, that's a good point.

For me, however, it is more simple. I, and most other people on this forum, don't ever read my posts, so I've never actually seen a problem. I thank you for bringing it to my attention now.

Well, you can always just get the bigger picture of your current avatar.

Oh I could do it for sure. But I'm superstitious as all get out and don't want to jinx them this season. If I change it and they don't win it you'll all blame me and I don't want that.

2012

When Stanko Barac is king of the NBA? Or after the world ends on December 22nd?

Kyoto ends several days after the Mayan apocalypse, so I'd say 2012 is a solid bet all-around.

Oh, and my avatars are always filthy. It's a privilege to read my posts - not only for the insightful knowledge, but to view my avatar. You're all welcome.

I'm a big believer in superstitions when it comes to sports. Don't change it!

The truth is, we are going to blame him anyways.

I can't find my avatar to get the big version back. Plus I kind of think its funny to see how unintimidating the small version is.

I have the avatar feature turned off so I don't see them to begin with. I also, just added an avatar after not having one for a very long time.

enjoy

Well, I for one am an old phart and noone has ever explained to me how to size my avi's. I rely on MagicRat, Hicks, or Able to handle things for me. Like this one....my concept was explained to MR and he created it.

I know nothing about how to do those sorta things tho...so suffer.


Besides, I can no longer find my full sized Elmer the Hunter.

I have it turned off also. I first did it because of work, but now that I'm used to it, I like it, much easier to read posts without all the distractions

I don't read names I look at the pictures so it's a necessity for me.

I rather agree.....If I wish to know how UB responded in a thread I speed thru the posts until I see his avi flash by and then I stop and go back to it. That is much quicker than looking for his or anybody's name.

Does this make you happier? :-p

I couldn't find the original image the last time I looked for it. And I rarely log onto PD anymore anyway.

Because it doesn't automatically resize pictures anymore.

I've tried a good 10 different pictures, and they have all been too big.

I adopted the Jazz for the playoffs, and I'm still looking at Carlos Boozer's big (little) head. :(

Hicks

This is your friend; enter 175 width for PD's max size: (Obviously going to have better results when downsizing; not really recommended for squished avatars).

I would change mine if I had the original picture but I deleted it and it was a one of a kind and I am still in love with Chunk so he needs to be represented.

EDIT: Thanks Mal for that link. Made the upsize that much easier
