:?: Are you going to load any avatars to select from or do we just need to make our own and load it from a url?

Yeah; we're planning on putting the default avatars from some of our games up as soon as we've got the time. We were focusing on making the forums work nicely today >:)

Goooooooooooooooooooood.

Now, are there any avatar limits?

I'm not making myself an avatar to upload here and get an error message saying the size limit is 6kb.

Only one image can be displayed at a time, its width can be no greater than 100 pixels, the height no greater than 100 pixels, and the file size no more than 6 KB.

6kb is the phpBB default.

You know this can be extended, right? I have no problem with the dimention limit though.

I know it can be extended, but I'm happy with 6kB >:)

Let's be nice to the dial-up lepers >;)

Of course you're happy -- your avatar is only a 1.19 KB, monochrome -- 3 frames based gif animation :P

Fine, I'll figure out something >:)

I use dialup, mine is close to the limit, and it's shiny! :D

Few colours: dithered 256 scale. Says it all.

:? ... it's in gif format... if the limit was bigger I could have made it more smooth... give me a break!

Easy now! No-one's putting pressure on you! :)

That's just the penalty of using a full gradient between 4 colours...

Dial up? :) (I was on that until 2 weeks ago)

Actually, mine is amazingly 5.8k and is grayscale...so 6k seems almost a bit low - think what would happen if you gave it color? :)

Okay, okay. Maybe 6kB was a bit low. It's set to 12kB now.

Oh, and anyway to change the posts/page - I don't see any option in Profile and I'm used to much more then 15 posts/page. Probably some PHPBB addon somewhere that does it...I should hunt it down since I'll be sticking a PHPBB on my website eventually.

EDIT:
Hunting through google and phpbbhacks.com turned up nothing interesting. Probably too much time to write one myself (or yourself), so ignore this :)
