Does the forum have a maximum avatar filesize?  Not that I want to upload a large-sized one myself but I've just noticed someone with a 151kb avatar.  As a one-off on a page it's not individually huge, and it looks nice but surely if everyone was to have largeish filesize avatars it would be a bit heavy on bandwidth.

151kb is large? 512k or 1mb sure but anything under 256k shouldnt be a big issue for anyone not using dialup

I just mean that if everyone used avatars that size (or larger if there's no limit on the forum), just downloading avatars on a 20-post page would be 3 megabytes.  If you used the "All" link to view all posts in a thread that would add up to a lot more.  Seems sensible to limit the size af avatars to save bandwidth for both members and the server.

If it becomes a problem, then yes they should probably be limited.  You're also assuming that every post on a page will be different people (very rare) and that every will have a big avatar.  There are plenty of people out there with no avatar.
