Sometimes, even on the same thread, a number of posts have my avatar @ 150 x 150 px, whilst others have it at 60 x 60 px. What gives? Is this a bug?

(Of course the larger version looks pixelated)

Also, some of my posts contain only my name, rank, avatar and the '[MORE/REPORT/SHARE]', whilst others shew my join date and number of posts.

???

This is all intentional. The larger the post (text, quote, image/s) the larger the avatar will be. If you simply reply to the thread and only type up a line or two of text, the avatar will be small, along with no info under your name. If you quote someone, post a photo, etc. The avatar will increase in size along with displaying info under the avatar. Watch my avatar as I quote your response and just post a simple reply with a small amount of text.

Test: Simple reply with one line of text. (You should see a small avatar and no info underneath).

Seriously though, wonder what I can do to avoid the pixelisation. I don't have any SVG images for avatars. -?

You can upload a larger avatar. AMASS!'s ingenious software will scale it down.

As a matter of fact, I want to change my current avatar —I just haven't found anything I like yet. :rolleyes:

Feel free to grab something bigger than the old 80x80 and AMASS will automatically scale it down so that when it's enlarged with bigger posts, you won't see pixelation.

There needs yo be an option to turn off avatars, and signature lines from being displayed, please. Avatars are so big and they are rather 90s Web material.
