A good Avatar size for the forums?

Hey, NeoThermic (and everyone), wouldn't it be better to have a nice, round, even number like... oh, say, 100x100 for avatar size limit?

(There was a sixth option, 'Enemy Within Sucks!', but it didn't seem to make it into the poll. Odd, that. Maybe it's for the best. ;D)

I voted for 80x80 but wish I voted for 100x100.

Due to oddness, you will see a sig if you view the uplink forums or the introversion forums with the uplink skin, and an avatar if you use the darwinia or other skin. I think. Something like that.

Since when was 80 an odd number? I DID NOT GET MY MEMO! I DEMAND A MEMO FROM THE MATH COUNSEL!

Anywho, 100x100 could be possible, but it always looks ugly. 80x80 is a decent size, and I've voted that way :)

Grarghh that's retarded and not only that but the theme breaks my quick reply script whereas the Uplink one doesn't so I have to use the normal reply screen. Gheeey.

Shock horror! You have to use a normal posting screen!

Well its a pain in the arse, my QuickQuote feature is damn handy for when you're replying to more than one post, rather than having to open up seperate tabs and copy and paste the contents you can just click a button and have the contents of the posts you're replying to in one reply box at the bottom of the page. Plus it breaks my endless forumpages script which means you don't have the brilliance of having the entire topic on one page rather than several.

It's one extra click to the post reply page, and the topic preview is below the window, so you can quote many people with a quick copy & paste operation. The problem with quick reply, though, is it spawns an ethos of half-hearted posts and one-word replies.
