    No it would not be cool 75x75 is totally fine, I hope that by bigger he just means a higher file size, like 75x75 @ upto 10,000 bytes

    which would be cool.

    I personally can't stand big avatars.

    I wonder if the chat system will get an overhaul too.

    one thing about this big update though

    ~48 hours of forum downtime :(

    oh no! :p

  8. Signature length limit? Damn. Mine's probably too big, what with the Thor quote. And I like that quote! Ah well.

    I think by signature length limit it just means there actually will be a limit :p

    a couple months ago some dude came and posted a signature that was like 3 pages long consisting of
    .

    ..

    .

    ..


    it cause MASSIVE strain on the server, and he was promptly banned, but it still caused quite a stir up.

    I guess there is a limit now, but it's very generous, I'm sure the new limit will still be adequate in length, but certainly won't let some massive things get away.
     
  11. Ah cool, that's my mind at ease then, thanks.
