    Same here, that's why I agree with RED_BARON about the auto-scaling thing. Mine's set to 1028x768.

    That's a matter of JavaScript I think, but shouldn't be impossible. So yes, you would get 100x100 icons shown, downscaled from 200x200 (or 300x300, depending on the choice)

    This is still just an idea though, needs Ralle's approval and implementation

    No need for Javascript, just make all the widths fluid by using % values in CSS.

    I wonder if all the existing Threads, Subscriptions, Messages, Walls, Albums, etc will be imported to hive 2?

    If those vanishes, I think its time for me to say goodbye to Hive.

    I'm more of a mind that without change the world becomes a mighty boring place, but hey,
    I'm not going to intrude upon your opinions, you get to keep them for yourself.

    Not really, no. A very frustrating image, or a very beautiful image, will subconsciously either distract you or irritate
    you while you try focusing on something different, as long as it's also visible simultaneously with the text.

    Well, pardon me for misunderstanding, cause that was
    exactly what I got from reading your text. Oh well...

    I am surprised the 1920x1080 group isn't larger.

    Well, my 1024x768 screen is enough for me to mod and game. xD

    Anyway, I think avatars look fine this way. I've browsed in 1920x1080 screens and I think they still look fine. Bigger avatar + bigger sigs would just look way messy.

    If Ralle would implement bigger sigs or avatars, I suggest giving an option to hide avatars and sigs. (Correct me if this suggestion is already implemented)
    There are times where I'd rather read the user's actual post rather than stare at their signatures.

    EDIT: 1,500 posts. :D

    Imo you need the avatars, they are there to help you quickly identify the owner of a post

    Signatures perhaps - but avatars? Never.

    Okay, time to make myself clear:

    What I proposed was the option to upload higher quality avatars, and downscale them depending on the screen size, with no scaling at 1080p. By downscale, I don't mean autosize: reducing an image's size by a random % results in ugly distortions. I'd rather fix the size for certain screen widths. So if you have a screen that's 1440px or 1366px wide, you get a 150x150 icon, and 100x100 for anything under.

    1080p can be either 200x200 (better for fitting) or 300x300 (better for downscaling, since it can be divided by both 2 and 3)

    There should still be an option to keep smaller avatars for larger resolution computers as well.

    I probably wouldn't end up liking the idea of having anything higher than 150x150px avatar size on my 1080p PC.

    Well autoscaling is just an option, we could have both autoscale and manual configs

    For avatars I will go with the default in XenForo.
