I have the avatars

working, and there are limitations, so we all may be happy.  The picture cannot be larger than 80x80 and the file size cannot be larger than about

6Kb.  The one I am using is about 1.3Kb.


No one is required to post an avatar, obviously, but I also want to know how you all feel about them?

I don't mind them as long as they are uniform, meaning it is of your car or another B5.  I know there are really only about a dozen of us, so it

shouldn't be a big deal.

I've added a poll that will go away in about 7 days.  I think we'll know for sure in that time.

Avatars are cool and give you a

visual when you are viewing posts.  It's understandably diffucult to use them on high traffic sites like CB5 and especially VWVortex, but there's no

reason we can't have fun with them...

Not to mention I am offering space to

store your avatar or you can have it linked from a remote location.  I'd be happy to help folks out with creating avatars and optimizing them to cut

down bandwith.

don't have a pic

of my B5 that looks good at 80 pixels

I think this crazy cat pic is cool though.  :)

should we move this thread to the "test" area?

Changing avatars:

If you are uploading the images to the server and decide to change your avatar please make sure during the change process you select the box to

delete the current one.  If you don't the image is left on the server with no way for you to really use it again.  They don't take up much space, but

I'd rather not get stuck with a bazillion images and only 10 or 15 are being used.

Also, I can retrieve an old image if you didn't delete it, but I would need to know the day and approximate time you had uploaded it.  Otherwise

it'll cost a beer for me to go through and figure out which one it is (the images get a unique name when they are uploaded).

Back to cleaning my room.

Jay...as far as I know...I have been

deleating my previous avitars.  I click on the box, then submit, then re-upload a new image, then submit again.  Thanks for the heads up though

Are we not going with the car theme?  

I'm just curious.  I probably won't change, well, maybe slightly.

I like em'.  

All I have for now is the VW logo.  I hope to get my baby cleaned up and get her picture taken for an update.

Jay, I need some help! OK, with the avatar that is. I have a picture I want to use, but I can't seem to make it work for the size limit set.
