I have to say, I don't mind the 50 x 50 size limit. I've been to forums, on other sites, that have some strict limitations. Such as the following:
1- A small army of Moderators who cannot come to a consensus on what constitutes spam. Imagine getting banned because what you posted was fine by one Mod's standards, but not by another one's.
2- Being limited to posting attachments that are only 400 x 500. (That's not that big). Shrink the pic down so it'll fit, if it looks bad, well; too bad.
3- Not even being able to use your own custom avatar!
4- Being able to look through your post history, but not being able to tell if there are new posts on a thread that you've posted in.
5- Having only a handful of smiley icons to choose from.
6- No "Edit" button!
I mean honestly, the way the
forums are set up; best out of all of the ones I've seen! ...... And it's free! I don't mind the 50 x 50 avatar.
