I think that Avatar should contain more space, 24kb are very few. Maximum 50kb or 70kb...
This is for animated avatars that it make more pleasant place because has more avatars...
What do you think?
I dont think that is necessary
The fact is that, people with Dial Up connections access frihost as well.
When that is the case, having 60 or 70 kb images will cause problems in the load time, since many such images need to be loaded in one forum topic itself
Though a cache will be done, it is not right to put users through such hardships for simply reading a post or topic
Also, even within this 24 kb, people are putting overly animated pics,
If 70 kb is given for an avatar, then the animations would really go over the top
Anyway, overly animated avatars are not allowed.
So giving 70 kb is of no use when you cant use such animated images
