Is there anyway that the 50KB limit can be pushed up a bit? Because that really limits the types of sigs that you can use.

Nope, has been asked a million times and the answer is always no. I don't really see the need for larger sigs though.

Unless you feel the need to have a long-loading gif movie in your sig, 50kb is fine. Any photoshop user worth his salt can easily make even the most complicated looking sig under 50kb.

I don't want to have bigger sigs, I just want to be able to use some of the animated ones that I've made.

By larger I ment in kilobytes, not pixels. They're pretty strict about this rule. For the entire length of time this forum has been up the only thing they've given to the users requests is that you're allowed is 2 lines of text below your sig instead of one.

Yeah, someone tried asking Bond to increase the limit.. All he got was a 2nd line for sigs with images..

Has the avatar size been increased... because I just noticed that this person's avatar is 80x80.

I mean that it displays at 80x80 when he posts, but previously if you had a 80x80 avatar it would still be displayed as 64x64.

I think they just forgot to switch the Default IPB avatars to 64x64.

No, it is one of the avatars from the "IPB Community Pack", which come with the forum:

I gather as a result, they are not subject to the 64x64 avatar size restriction. (I think they might be set by different restrictions) :o



I love beer.

This is off topic but, whats that little thingy on the top part of your window? Some sort of enhancement? Whatever it is, can you point me in the right direction, i'm, always looking for crap to put on my desktop. ^.^

The little thingy is nView Desktop Manager interface controls. If you have nVidia drivers installed, go to Display Properties > Settings tab > advanced > (Your graphics cards name) tab.
Then you look for the list on the left and select "Desktop management", enable it. Then you can expand the Desktop management section, there's tons of stuff you can do in here. For the "Little thingy" I have. Scroll down to "User Interface" and you can enable/disable things that will appear on all windows, within that small thing.

At the moment I have enabled:
Full-Desktop maximise (I use it because I have 2 monitors thus if I want to just maximise a window to one monitor instead of both I press this button).

Next Display (It sends the window to the next monitor connected to your PC).

Collapse to title bar (It sort of minimises the window to just it's title bar at the top of your window).

nView Options (This is the greenish button, it has shows a drop down list with loads of options such as Transparency, Always on top and send to dekstops/monitors).
Screenshot of the Desktop management settings for user interface:

Please keep the off topic talk elsewhere or in PM.

Anyway, Q's right. It is the default 80x80 avatars that IPB offers.. And yes they bypass the 64x64 restriction. Though the "avatar holder" will limit them still.
