Banner and Icon Size Limit Changes(PLEASE READ!)

Postby grumpybear » Fri Sep 28, 2007 2:35 pm

Okay after a discussion the other night we have decided that a change is needed in icon sizes.

The banner limit will remain 600 x 200 and under 500kb. NO BIGGER

Icon limit is going to be decreased from 200 x 200 down to the forum standard 100 x 100. NO BIGGER

Now for some of the reasons...

1. The use of over-sized icons and banners is causing horizontal scrolling for some people.

2. The text in posts is starting to get lost in a sea of graphics.

3. The board is starting to look a bit messy in some threads because of the huge difference in peoples icon dimensions.

4. Some people still have to use dial up and the bigger the graphics the longer the page takes to load.


If anyone needs ANY help you can always PM me or joan we would both be more than happy to help you. Or you can leave a help request in this thread and one of us or another helpful person will take care of it. Artists just let us know if you are taking care of a request so joan and I aren't scrambling around to fix something you are already doing....lol

I'm going to give everyone till next Friday 10/05/2007 before I start PM'ing anyone about it....lol

With more and more members joining everyday it's just something we feel would make the board easier to read and follow.


From now on the banner and icon limits are going to be enforced, by him >>>>>:ag: well him and me.... :dpmo:....lmao

If anyone has any questions feel free to message me...I'm almost always around...

Jen

So does that mean the avatar and banner sizes go back to the way they were before?

The limits are 100 x 100 for icons and 600 x 200 for banners no bigger.

I bumped it back up because I found a few people with icons and banners that were too big...just wanted to be sure everyone knows
