Re: how to improve the forum

I don't think there's any need of private messaging since you can send email, chat on im etc...
And phil did disable images in signatures because he think it would be too distracting and that most people are interested what your sig says and not how it looks like.

Re: how to improve the forum

but if only 5 people use the forum, who cares about the "distracting" sigs. besides phil is barely here.

Re: how to improve the forum

i know. besides sigs and better avatars will make the forum more "colorfull" or nicer. i also think a shoutbox sounds cool

Re: how to improve the forum

i am here smile Just because I don't post as often as you guys doesn't mean that i'm not reading the forums wink

About the avatar - if you dig waaay back in my 'to do list' that has long got buried under a mounting pile of other priorities it had making the avatar bigger. But to do it, the code needs to handle your large file upload, dynamically resize / crop the image to the correct dimensions and then save it on the server. By having the restrictions it's just getting you to do the resizing yourself. This saves our bandwidth and server space. I'm not too fussed about either though most people don't have avatars. Essentially, it'd be a fair amount of coding for me to write it in myself, but i'll dig around and see if i can find a forum mod that'll do it.

Images in sigs - I still think that forums should be about what people write, not what annoying flashing colourful thing they stick below what they write, but if you guys really want one i'll have a look for a mod/forum setting

Shoutbox - meh, loads of effort. use msn wink

Re: how to improve the forum

haha, gutted - just looking in the massive options page and there's a setting for avatar size and dimensions! Oops tongue
Anyway, you can now have an image up to 140px wide and 100px tall. Max filesize just under 30kb.

Re: how to improve the forum

is the image the wrong dimensions? For the signature image it has to already be on the web somewhere - JaXeRiR seems to have got his from the site http://www.usersigs.com

Re: how to improve the forum

Again - is the image under the dimensions of 140px wide and 100px height and under 30kb? If it's not, the upload will be rejected. This is the most likely cause.
Other forums probably dynamically resize the image for you, this one doesn't (yet) because I can't be bothered to write the code when I don't see much need...
