I'm going to assume there's a maximum avatar size.

the non 150x150 ness of it makes me a sad panda :(


back to the avatar drawing board...

A blinking test-pattern "LOL?" OMG!  Why don't you just make the same image at a reduced size?  Since everything is made of straight lines, it should be a piece o' cake...

Speaking of cake..happy belated birthday to Pep...mine was just over two weeks ago, and the cake was delish...glad yours was too!

If things are really that slow, then I would make a personal request to visit the Wiki:

http://www.wayofthepixel.net/pixelation/pixipedia

The more viewership the Wiki gets, the more it grows. Knowing is half the battle!!! Share your knowledge, improve on what's there!

Thanks Nvision. Happy belated to you as well!

Might be a bit of a dry subject for some, but I wanted to inform everyone that we've been looking into the current forum structure and will be doing some rule updates. Hopefully nothing that will shock you or blow your world away. :)

I found an error in that tut, in Demystifying the Greats 1

"
Now here's a sphere with a light shining on it. You can instantly tell there's light shining on the top right of it because that side is lighter, and the other side is of course, darker. It FEELS 3d, even though it's still just pixels like anything else we've been looking at...."

While it says top right I can clearly see top left.  Not much of a problem but hey, I'm just pointing it out.

I swear, I was just about to make a post about EarthBound3 or at least I was thinking about it. It should be pretty interesting, although I hope the really long delays and cancellations aren't a bad omen.
