Default Avatar Size?

Poll is public and also multiple choice. Choose all that you agree with.

Okay I know this has been up for discussion before but I would like to know one thing. I'll use the Linux pre defined avatar as an example.

This avatar has the following sizing.

Width: 90 pixels
Height: 76 pixels
Size: 50.58KB

Now if we want a custom avatar were limited to the following.

Width: 65 pixels
Height: 65 pixels
Size: 14.9KB

If your concerned about space just make people upload there avatars to photobucket and link the URL rather than uploading them.

IMO with the resolutions people run at, 100x100 would be far better. Our avatar's don't fill the user area very well at all right now.

I am half-and-half on this. I would like bigger avatars, but I doubt I'd use it.

I don't really care either.

Plus, I'd have to remake mine, and I don't know how I even did it.

I don't really care either way. I'm glad we at least have custom avatars.

i dont think the size of avatars makes any difference if you cba in either finding a custom avatar that fits or resizing one then an avatr obviously isnt that important to you
