Increasing max avatar size?

This is not a critical request, but I think it would be cool if we could use bigger avatars here, like in the old forums where the limit was 100x100. Increasing this limit is quite simple and can be done in the board's Avatar settings.

A limit between 100x100 and 120x120 would be pretty cool, preferably the latter if possible.

I think this is a good idea too. I would've requested it earlier, but I thougt it was the forum software's fault, not just a setting.

I'm not sure why this would be a necessary feature, but it may serve a useful purpose for some users, so I'm on board with this idea.

100 is a fairly 'standard' number for a size limit, so yes. My current avvie, I had to crop it weird (not very, but still) to fit it inside the current limit....

Yes, definitely a good idea

this might just be a thing with phBB, but is there a way to store any size of avatar, but just have them automatically resized to fit in a 90x90 (or whatever size)?
pretty much any other website does this, and i find it a little annoying that phBB does this. :V

(maybe theres a plugin for it?)

edit: try these?

The reason why I requested this is that 90x90 is a pretty small size for an avatar. The only problem I see with being able to upload and display bigger ones is if there's storage constraints on the server.

I like your idea though. Being able to upload gigantic avatars and have them resized before storing them would be neat too, and it would save one the extra step of resizing them before uploading them.

By standard FT-Forum argument policies I must argue that this is counterproductive to teaching users the basic functions of photo editing software.
