Hi, I'm back!
The max kbs of the Profile Pics we have is 300. IMO it should be increased to 500 kb-1 mb or more.

The display size for profile pics is, what, 200x200? 50kb should be more than enough, even 200kb is overkill.

Think about it this way; I don't want be be loading 20mb of profile pictures every time I open a new page of a thread on here, and nor does anyone else who wants to view the site in it's full desktop form on a mobile.

Try reducing the size of the picture you're uploading.

Man, just 450 kb.
At least you should have 500 kb limits.

Again, why? What possible reason could you have for creating a 200x200 pixel image that's half a megabyte? There's literally no reason why anyone would need this.

Just a friendly FYI, it's actually 100 x 100 for avatars instead of 200 x 200. When you post or send a PM reply, the avatar to your left gets resized (by the forum software, I'm guessing) to that size

 

Granted, it doesn't really matter much since it gets resized anyway..

Turns out they're 200x200 in profile, and resized down for everything else.

He's probably hit the 300kb limit trying to use an animated GIF avatar.

Still, that's big for a Gif so dimensionally small. Plenty of members with sub-300kb Gif signatures which are much larger dimensions.

There's no need to up the limits, most members are actually using the mobile version where's no sigs or avatars anyway.
