I can understand you don't want bigass megabyte whores drowning the forum, but 64kb is really too low. My 100*100 GIF is 189 kb.

I tried resizing it, and I fail to reproduce the animation in the second smaller file. I have no experience with this GIF creation thing.

We're talking about +-150 extra kilobytes here, which have no real significant forum overhead issue.

well if any of the forum admins care about it they will change it
i cant so theres no point to try to see the best limits atm
i know that i would put sig limitations and would probbaly increase avatar to 100kb under conditions

Upload to a thirdparty site, its a free forum so theres nothing to complain about. Using third parties ensures we don't slow down the forum as images don't have to be uploaded from the forum servers.

Yet again, if I give the link as avatar, the forum complains that it is too large in size (which it is currently) or corrupted, which is not the case.

We have a signature limit but no one follows it, lol

"Signatures will be removed if they exceed 400x200
Avatars will be removed if they exceed 100x100"

Remains locked.
