This thread exists so I can gather an idea of how fast our typical members internet connection is.

I have DSL, so I'm all for the larger avatars.

EDIT: I didn't see the poll. I voted the typical home connection.

Slow down pilgrims.

Just checking out peoples connections. Not planning broad changes to the rules. We have to worry about KKW itself serving the images to users, and how much bandwidth that consumes. Wait and see how things go :)

Calm down dears, it's only a survey!

I voted 1 meg+. I personally think 100x100 and the slight size increase from 20 to 25K should be feasible, but I'm still a no-no on animated avatars. Partly as when EVERYONE starts using them they get annoying blinking away on the side and actually make the forum look crap, and partly because of the bandwidth issues.

Just my two pennies worth...

Yeah, we're all high speed users, load up those seizure giving animated avatars immediately.

Animated avatars could be nice for 5 seconds but can get annoying as hell for the rest of the time. People should consider resizing photos when they post them on threads (I could care less, but for those 56kers, I'd assume it'd make browsing easier).

Where did all this avvy resizing talk become serious? It's worked for what... 2 years as 80 x 80?

Its not serious. Thats what I'm trying to tell people.

I said I'd have a look at it. Anyone who knows me will know that this means *nothing* will happen. Unless I see striking evidence that we should upsize the avatars, I wont do anything. It would be up to Baz.

We have come up with about 4 seperate designs. Didn't like any of them, so they got binned.

My connection says 100mbps, but I really feel that it's lying to me. When I download I seem to average about 40 k/s...which is crap.


Stupid internet.

voted wrong, got 1mb down, 128 up. Don't really care for the upload, I don't use it very much. Animated avatars sucks, glad they're not allowed.

Can't you use a different image than your LJ one... My LJ one (which I only use to comment on a friend's LJ) is an animated album cover changing thingy. Wouldn't dream of using it here.

She can, she merely asked why it was restricted and if it could be resized. Sheesh people...she's been nice about it, so why all pick on her?

No, she said that 2 or 3 posts ago. In her last post, she says just "Ever since LiveJournal became so popular." And yes, I was just answering to that post only, that's why it's quoted.

Yes, and I was answering YOUR comment. She's already said she wants to use the ones she makes for LJ...because she makes them herself?! Read Jethro my boy, READ.

And your LJ one is gay so it's not allowed anyway...

Too bad, make ones for KKW then. Is it that demanding to use Paintshop, Photoshop, or my personal favourite, Window's Fax and Image Previewer, to resize an image? And you stupidly enough can't read what I quoted. Stfu.

Also, shut up "My Chemical Romance" fag.

I read exactly what you quoted. If you've actually been following the conversation Flightfreak showed Jasmine how she could resize her Avatar without losing the quality that she initially lost in doing so. Do keep up old boy...

Aww, did I hit a nerve? Animated avatars are crap, that was what I referring to, not the bands featured. Stop being so hypersensitive :p

I love My Chemical Romance, and I'm proud of that fact. I have better musical taste than you anyway bitch so shut it ;)

1. She obviously finds it a pain in the arse to resize her LJ ones, thus, wanting to make the limit higher. And I'm STILL quoting just that bit. Stop digging up posts before it.
2. It's LJ, I use it to comment on other people's. I don't care how it looks.
3. My Chemical Romance sucks compared to any of the bands in the animation.
