    Who's avatar are you trying to scope out? Mingo's? I saw one awhile ago with some hot chick fly fishing in a white bikini, was it that one? Which one should I be looking at?

    since most are uploaded as thumbnail size, there's not much to expand on. you can't make a 100x100px image to blow up to 600x600px

    Evan, seriously, you are a computer guy...how do you do it? I need to make out those...fly patterns, yeah, full screen size, not pixelated and grainy. We can put a man on the moon and we can't make an avatar bigger?

    If the image is uploaded small, nothing you can do. If you want a bigger, but pixelated view, you can hit "ctrl" and "+" a few times, jsut zooms in, ctrl 0 goes back to normal by the way.

    Ed, no. It requires an image be 180 by 80 pixels or smaller. While the gallery allows the upload of a large image and then creates smaller sized images, including a thumbnail, the forums avatar utility does not. That means what you see is the largest image available. Besides, it's function is for identity, not as a gallery link.
