Default signature and avatar sizes are too small!

hi, i'd like to say something i know bothers other people too,
the avatar and signature sizes on wi are just too small. it's very hard to create animated gif's that would be small enough, and if you do make them small enough they come out ugly because you have to reduce the number of colors
please please please raise the maximum size just a little bit! 30 kb for a signature is just nothing

i think 100 kb for a signature would be fair. 250 kb would be just PERFECT!
and for avatars, it would be really nice if the limit was 75 or 100 kb.

and please, even if you don't allow larger files, just please let us upload the images to other sites and hotlink... because we could really do some nice things that just can't be used because of their size.

Yeah, we all know that the sizes are too small I have a tough time crunching gifs down... And they end up looking bad by the time they're 48KB.

This has been rejected(for now), many times. A few things the mods said (Webberlily, I think) was that:

--It would slow computers down.
People argued that they can just turn off avvies and siggies... But then Webberlily came back and said that some people might not want to do that because they like seeing images, and they just cannot handle bigger images.
--And it is always proven skilled to make an avvie in a smaller space and KB size.

Well.. Yeah. I support. But it might not happen. They said they are keeping it in mind though: http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...96/index5.html

thanks a lot for the response - i'm new here and i didn't know that was discussed before.

i'd like to comment about what you said.

about the slowing down thing: people in this community play webkinz. and if your computer can play the heavy webkinz site without being too slow, it can play a little 100kb gif... couldn't it? the webkinz site takes about 120 kb when you just log in. check your task manager!

i also think computers today are a lot stronger than they were a few years ago, and therefore, sizes can go a little up from time to time. i agree 800kb for a gif image is too much. but 100 kb really isn't.

and any way, having avatars weight more than signatures really doesn't make any sense... the signatures are usually bigger... the signature limit can be raised at least to the same limit as the avatar... if computers are strong enough to preview the avatars correctly, they could view the signatures just the same way, couldn't they?
