Profile gif size

Recommended Posts

DickSlide    250

I don't know if this has been made but I am suggesting to raise the cap for gif for profile avatars from 500kbs to 1mb like on the old website. Senior @Rolleplease grace me with an answer

I would love to, but I don't think Rolle will increase it. He's already said in the past that it was too much to load up per page when everyone is a HoFer.

I mean it's usually people with shitty computers. Maybe make an option to not have the gifs play.

Nah, his main argument was for people who use the mobile version and it would eat up their mobile data just to load up a forum page.

Then don't log onto the forums with cellular data lmayo. Shit just ruins it when I have to cut off half my gif because it is bigger than 500kbs

Bigger gifs would always be better... but fucking mobile users... 

Solution: Disable avatars for mobile users.

I'll have you guys know, that I came up with all the perk ideas for the ranks we have.

Anyways, hopefully rolle thinks this will work and that'd be great.

The amount of times I have found a outstanding gif to use for my cover photo or my profile picture and it's say it's to much it's just out of this world. I would love to see this added and like the points stated above disable them for mobile users, I like this idea s lot.

1mb is pretty big for an avatar. Fine as is, tbh.

Na, not really. 1mb is usually the standard size on most websites for GIFs.

I haven't had an issue yet, maybe you're just bad at compressing the gif file size? :) I could teach you.

Na, I'm alright. Just nice to have it imo. We used to have it and it's pretty shitty to lose donor perks that you had before. Not everyone here is an expert at compressing GIFs, we already have to compress our MP3s now, I just think it's a lot of extra steps to get something on a profile.

I think it's fine as it is? I mean, 150x200 is fairly small for an avatar, you can get quite a few animated frames within 500kB :) Think of the mobile users with data cap like me! :D

Is there a possible plugin for an option to disable user avatars? Something they you could toggle off/on if you switch between desktop and mobile?
