It´s easy, D-Tail, just allow only a small picture and file size limit. Wink

MRC has about 1404 active users. Assuming a 50 Kbytes limit, it would spend about 68 Mbytes of server space. And that not considering that not all avatars would reach that limit and not all users would use an avatar. And about forum design, an 80x80 pixel image would perfectly fit below our names. Wink

Yay for codebox, works on the blitzforum as well, apart from a max height there should also be a max width, namely not larger than the width of the message area on any user's resolution.

Assuming a worst-case 50kB limit, and 16 messages per forumpage, that'll be 50*16 = 800kB in a worst-case situation. The problem with avatars and signatures is deliberate misuse. I mean, I'm sure we've all seen forums anywhere on this planet where ppl have a signature larger than the average message-body. It's incredibly ugly and won't improve MRC in any way.

I know that, but as I said, just limit their sizes. And yes, I hate images in signatures.

And about MRC, the best improvement with animated avatars would be simply fun. I am also a member of the Retroremakes forum, and we have loads of fun with many avatars in there.

But, I won´t insist anymore. Smile

Well it was merely my opinion, ofcoz there're more ppl who have a say in it, most notably snout, for obvious reasons.. tho iirc his opinion was also 'no' .. Tongue

How about regular interviews? With an MRC crew member -electronically (chat) or on a fair- interviewing an amateur MSXer or former professional.

Internally we've had that idea for a while already, I discussed quite some potentially interesting Dutch persons to interview already with snout, months ago. Who knows, next year. I don't think this concept will end up in the round bin, but there's also no telling when exactly there will be an interview.

ps.. lemme guess: you've seen the poll, and thought: 'oh yes, there was a whole other MSX era with ppl, more than a decade ago, who made magazines'.. HannibalRunning Naked in a Field of Flowers
