Forum Avatars - RIP

Recommended Posts

That's pretty awesome, we'll get PNG forum avatars.. will they show on our posts? Do they have to be gaming related or can they be from movies or "selfies" as the kids call it.

I wish there was a hi-res alternative to GIF for animated graphics...

Will animated GIFs be allowed?

Just wait for the new forums. On second thought, we'll just ban anything new anyway. :lol:

Preloaded forum avatars will be going away with the migration to IPB. People will be able to set custom avatars after the migration.

This is great news. Though if I may ask, will this come with any kind of restrictions on the user-side (size, resolution, sharpness)?

Props to Larry for all the hard work on quality control that helped maintain OCR's avatar consistency across the aeons. :nicework:

I sure hope so. Can you imagine what this forum will turn into if people are allowed to have 1920x1080 animated .gif avatars?

Forum avatars are cropped and resized when you upload them. There's a filesize limit on uploads, and then a resizable box that you use for cropping. Avatars can't be animated.

Content that's allowed in avatars follows the same general guidelines for sigs. Basically no porn, no gross stuff, etc. If you can't put it in your sig, you can't put it in your avatar.

This is exciting! When will this be implemented?

This thread will be updated when the forum upgrade is imminent/a new date is locked down, so keep an eye over there for the heads up.

Time to get updating your profile pics, as the end of an era has arrived and forum avatars are no longer in play!!

 

My personal thanks to any & all who chipped in over the vBulletin years to make our forums a lot more fun, especially to Larry who coordinated the overall effort and put some serious time in. Have we moved on? Yes. Do I think people will ultimately prefer the personalization afforded by profile pics? Yes. Did we have some fun w/ our itty-bitty avatars over the years? You betcha. :nicework:
