    If quizzes are quizzical then what are tests?

    My avatar has vanished and I'm unable to add a replacement.

    Has this function been disabled for any reason?

  6. It´s locked to 19.5kb only :S

    I can´t even get a .jpg image that is 200px wide to 19.5kb.
    All that is left is massive pixels :)
  7. You could:

    -Shrink the image
    -Save it as .gif or low quality .jpg

    its 19.5kb for a reason. Xenforo displays avatars as thread icons. You can imagine how the page loading speed will be for people with slow connections if we allow avatars up to 1mb :)
  9. This one is 150px and 30+ kb.


    19.5 seems to be a little extreme :) I can´t get that picture lower then 31kb in .jpg

    Here it is in 47kb

    50kb seems like a more reasonable figure, that´s only 0.050 of 1mb

    Making the picture even smaller like 100px makes little to no difference.

    No its not a more reasonable figure as I tried to explain a post up :) Its needs to be less than 20kb for a reason.
  11. 20 avatars (1 page) * 50kb = 1mb :)

    45 pictures in one page "Funny pictures thread" = lots and lots of mb :)
    plus the avatars..
  12. 12kB

  13. explain this one :)

    Thanks Senad btw!!


    An image that is 42 kb works perfectly, it just depends what picture it is for some reason?
  14. no explanation? :)
  15. That one now works, and others of similar sizes don't? Bizarre, no clue how it would do that.

    BTW, doesn't look too good for 42kB, give the link to the original, and I'll save it better :p
    My Impreza on the left here is 9kB

    EDIT: oh, never mind, looks good, the small version seemed blurry before
  16. yea it´s weird right? :)

    Anyway, i´ll take your picture now, i just wanted someone to confirm that 42kb pictures really do work but it seems to depend on something else.

    That pic was also 500pix wide :S
  17. This one works, 42,0kb

    and this one does not :) 37,4kb
  18. Maybe Bram or someone else was changing it in the settings just when you were trying it? No clue :D

    Anyway, 500 pixels should be fine regardless. The avatar upload thing even says at least 200px wide; 500 isn't that extravagant. You'll hit the size limit first in most cases.


    LOL :). No clue.
  19. I doubt that :) he seems very firm on the 19.5kb :)

    tried again and it allows 42kb but not 37kb :) Interesting to see what is causing that.

    My guess, is that 42kb on 500pixels / 2 = 21kb on 250 pixels. So 200 pixels is less than 20kb. (This might not be the right thing when resizing the image, but the coding of the page, can be sat up to read it that way).
