AJB,

We are going to stick with the current ones for now.

This could change in the future though.

Can someone help me get this image to be usable for my av:

Image

- it's hosted on tinypic
- it's 100 x 62 so it fits the parameters

I have no idea why it's not working for me but thanks in advance for any help

TheGoodDoctor,

I'm sure Someone on The Graphics and Design Forum would be able to help you out.

Feel free to make a topic over there.

For future references I believe TinyPic image URLs should start with oi##. When it doesn't contain the o and is just "i##" then it redirects to a TinyPic page. PMd though

This applies only to signatures and avatars, correct?

I've always had problems embedding gifs tweeted out by @cjzero. I always have to upload them to my imageshack account for them to show up here.

I'd suggest an avatar library and further limiting the size/visibility of signatures. I've also suggested no animation in signatures or avatars, but I know that's on ice right now.

Laimbeer,

We've thought about a library but decided against it.

How do you feel about the sizes now?

Imageshack.us is now using Imageshack.com now as well. Can that be added to the allowed sites?

I've been noticing a few users with embedded Vines in their signatures. I personally don't care, but they are huge, and take up a lot of space. Perhaps Vines should be disabled from signatures?

Take out the ?1 at the end of the URL so it ends with .gif
So use this instead: http://i.imgur.com/5DlSwzZ.gif
