Now I fully expect to have a little controversy on this issue, but I think it's about time that the avatar resolution limit got increased to 100x100. The Width of the left column when posting is, I believe, hardcoded to more than that already, so it wouldn't change the formatting of the forum. The increase in image quality you get from making the jump from 64x64 to 100x100 is significant
, and the small amount of extra bandwidth wouldn't be a burden on the forum, but on the avatars' hosts.
Now, I appreciate that from a technical perspective I'm more than likely being naive here, and there's more than likely some technical (or other) reason that this hasn't already be changed. However, from my point of view, I'm struggling to see one.
Could somebody tell me why the avatars are being kept at 64x64 and, if there's no good reason, consider the posibility of upping it?
