I'll have to remember that one.

I must aswell. :bear:

Not entirely relevant to the question though, as that post was made 7 years ago and doesn't reflect the current size limits. We are still assholes though - it's endearing.

Whew! Had a heck of a time with this!

Does a website that hosts literally terrabytes of video need to limit avatars on the forum to 16kb? I took an avatar I am using literally everywhere else, resized it to 100x100, and saved it as a jpeg at the lowest possible quality and it was 32kb.

After reading this thread, I learned something neat, and that was that gif has some good compression capability, something I did not know beforehand. I assumed jpeg was pretty damned good.

But really? 16kb? It does seem a little "excessive" if that's the right word.

100x100 at lowest quality is 32kilobytes? That's kinda weird :<

What Nya-chan said: I can't imagine you'd have that much trouble getting a 100x100 avatar to compress to 16K or less with JPEG. If you're talking about the Applejack avatar I currently see, you might try PNG because of all the flat colors.

But I'm a little surprised that, with as long as you've been here and as long as this rule's been in place, you're only now mentioning it. More importantly: you're still alive? What the heck happened to the DDRMAX Project?
