I will give everyone 24 hours to reduce the size of your avatars to equal to or below 150 x 200 pixels and then I will remove your avatars.

The large avatars take too long to load for dial up users and by default deflate the posting spaces.

~If you right click your avatar after posting and click on properties, it will tell you how big your avatar is.


Thanks.............

Thanks to your help I see that my avatar falls well into this setting. But how did you do it? And is it possible that you give 48 hrs. instead of 24 hrs., seeing that tomorrow is Sunday, and that traffic is usually slow on weekends?

Good idea, by the way. I'm a dial-up, and sometimes I can read a whole thread before it is fully loaded. Reminds my of the 2400 baud days. (Yes, I am [u:ec049f278b]that[/u:ec049f278b] old. ):duh:

Let that be a lesson to you, a soft answer gets two results:

1. It turns away wrath; and

2. It makes people say, "Huh?"

Reminder about Avatar sizes

I just thought I would bring this back up for those new people who have joined in the last few months. Please limit your avatar sizes as noted above. The large pictures really jumble up the threads and make it harder for people with dial up to load the threads.

HELP!!!

I reduced the size of my avatar by half at photobucket. Re-entered the url and it's still showing up here the same as before. 155x219 and looks the same on my screen.

Mind you, there really is no excuse for dial-up anymore. I may as well attempt to gain access to the net through my abacus. :bs2:

150 x 200? That's great, I was originally told 150 x 150. I have 7500 more pixels to visually delight people with now.

If you saved it to the same server with the same filename, it's likely that IE had the old file cached and wasn't replacing it with the old one. If this happens again, click [b:b9807c6ee4]Tools > Internet Options > Delete Files > OK[/b:b9807c6ee4]. This will clear out the cache and will allow you to see the new files when loaded.

Okay, it looks different than last night.

As for dial up...some of us can only AFFORD dial up...it's cheaper. In fact I may not be on here for a while soon, due to the fact that right now we can't even afford the phone line...(myohmy...7 mouths to feed!)

Actually you are right. That change was also made. It should be 150x150.

I don't know how to reduce my avatar size, help! [/quote:772246bf08]

Do you have photoshop?

I could do it and send it to you.

What's your e-mail?

150 x 150 or 150 x 200? the larger height doesn't appear to cause any problems. PS, your avatar is nearly 180 high.

I have no clue what anything you said means! How do I get that picture into my avatar? Last time I had to put a URL address into the avatar line on my profile. I tried right-clicking this, left-clicking, no idea what to do. Thanks for yr help though.
