What's the current forum icon size limit? Last I remember it was 200x200, what's the maximum size now?

Yes, it's still 200x200. i don't think the forum lets you upload anything larger than that.

I personally see people with MUCH larger icons. For example, when @Rhea posts, it shows an image much larger! I’ll post a screenshot in a few

I've only ever seen icons 200 wide, but I've seen much taller images from various users. Rhea being one of them as an example. I think Reacher's is larger as well.

Mine appears bigger (sometimes) because I stretch mine out vertically. I have my dimensions at 165 x 200.

That's odd. My icon is 200 tall and smaller than yours when I just overlayed it.
Forum says mine is 166x200.

Hmm strange. My forum icon dimension says 200x200. It wouldn't allow me to upload anything larger then that.

This is pretty interesting, because the actual display changes from that. It's kinda cool

i believe this is a forum glitch, as your avatar, along with many others, exceeds the 200px height limit, even if you did resize it

and rhea's true size is actually even larger

i've been noticing this for awhile now, but only with an avatar's height, not width

I remember trying to recreate this a while ago but wasn't able to do it
You guys are resizing on the forums itself I'm assuming, opposed to resizing in a paint program and then uploading it? It'd be interesting to know what the original file is & how exactly you're uploading it

Im pretty positive it has to do with the original resolution of your image and then is created by changing the in forum dimensions ( usually by setting the height to the max limit and then making the width smaller so the image is stretched, which I assume confuses the forums when in play with the original photo dimensions), as I was only able to achieve this with those things in play. BUT, it was only occasionally so it's definitely a glitch!

I did resize the image in my paint program before uploading. It was set to 200x200. The forum would not let me upload anything higher then those dimensions. It appears completely normal on my computer screen, so I am unsure why it is so much bigger to others. I agree with a possible forum glitch?
