I mean, how do people even know I'm a mojito enthusiast with such a tiny icon?

By looking at your name? :P

Your icon is only 50x50. You could resize it all the way up to 90x90.

I'm in support of 128x128, but barring that, I'd like the pixel width to compare to the user box beside the post, and a height greater than 96, because seriously the NES pulls 224 lines easy-like

The userbox is specified using a percentage width (22% specifically) rather than an absolute, but on a typical PC resolution these days that's still at least 200 pixels wide or so.

Ah, okay. I guess the default was 96 as a fudge factor for people on 640x480 VGA displays from the early '90s, or perhaps using safe mode with the fallback video driver, so the page wouldn't look broken. I didn't read the CSS.

Still, why would anyone be using VGA in 2017?

I still remember the days when 640x480 was huge and 800x600 was "wait, what?" . Nowadays you can't run much of anything at less than that, and most programs officially want 1024x768 or higher. Damn resolution creep....

The other forum using phpBB is using larger avatar size so, it's possible.
By the way, is JSR alive? coes he is not active sence locking the DefleMask thread.

Yeah it's indeed possible. Somewhere in the admin control panel there's an option to change the maximum avatar size.

jsr hasn't come here in a while (almost 3 months) but he'll probably be back at some point. Don't worry.
