No offense Pro' but the question was asked 3 weeks ago, it's not important I know but even a canned response might be nice. And 50 websites you say, there was me thinking Nintendo Life was special. Hassle him lots!!! :)

I know, and we do try to respond to user questions as soon as we can, but in this instance it's obviously just fallen through the cracks. Nobody's perfect.

I am not ignoring you. I just do not post much.

I was going to say "I don't really notice a difference" but I guess that's why you used my avatar as an example...

If you had been reading you would have seen that even Jpeg's get their quality downgraded.

I think it would be cool too if the avatars were larger, theres a lot of unused space around the avatars

Did you hire Ant temporarily for this job rather than him being on staff? Because now it's been a month, and there's still no official response..

Sorry I have to disagree with having larger avatars, its annoying when an avatar takes up a lot of room, and the user only gives a single sentence answer, it just takes up unnecessary space.

there's nothing that's certain... of that you can be certain

Sorry to drag up old topics, but this is bugging me now. pixelman made me a new avatar, as seen here:

Untitled

However, when it's uploaded to the site, it loses some of it's luster, as you can see. I would just like to be able to view my avatar as it was intended to be viewed. Is there any way this can be addressed?

I don't know who Bridget is, but it greatly resembles Cammy to me at this level of detail.

Ant is the site's technical director. I don't know how many times I've said this, but he has stacks of other sites to run as well, each with a pretty sizeable to-do list, and this just isn't a a priority at the moment. There - I said it.

I am not ignoring you. I just do not post much.

on further perusal, you're probably right. both of them have much crotch-shot fanart, and they both are blonde with blue clothing. my bad. :3

That's alright, you're not expected to have too much literacy in female crotch-shot fanart, being a lady and all. I, on the other hand, should be ashamed that I'm not even aware of this other fanart vixen.

EDIT: theblackdragon has explained that this Bridget character is a male, not a vixen, and not something any of us want to see in that pose. Good thing it's actually Cammy. I'm gonna be pissed if it turns out to be Bridget once the image quality is improved.

i agree the image quality is pretty bad. my avatar is actually a close-up on Chuck Norris' sperm... though you can't really tell from the shot here.

Just to chime in , I am very happy with the image quality of avatars.

This site balances user idenity perfectly - an avatar and a sig, but niether are overdone. Some forums go SO overboard, and it detracts from the game disccusion.

I am happy with things the way they are, nice balance.

@orlick: Perhaps you don't realize the request... we're talking quality here, not actually changing the dimensions or anything.

For instance. Here's a nice, healthy Jenna, enlarged for clarity.

Here's what NL does to her, again enlarged for clarity.

If bandwidth's a problem, simply resize the avatars to 60x60. I compared the PNG and JPEG avatars and there was only a 0.3KB difference..

And yes, I know Ant's busy. Not demanding this or anything, just something for the future.

I don't see how better quality could hurt, though. Forum avatars only become a problem for me when there isn't a limit on the dimensions. Oversized avatars are annoying. Animated ones can be pretty annoying, too, if they're too flashy, though thankfully we don't have to deal with that hear since gifs aren't used.

Edit: Super Pixel Man beat me to it, and explained much better with actual examples. I feel so useless.
