    Premium benefits

    Current Avatar and Signature file sizes are limited to 20kb and 50kb respectively.

    It would be nice if Premium offered to raise this allowance to something a little more generous.

    Since an actual person (one that isn't paid a dime) has to check that you aren't abusing the file size limits I can pretty much guarantee that is never going to happen. That or they would have to pay someone to code a program that checks file size and hope that it's smart enough to not to recheck static links from imgur etc.

    I actually think this is a feature they'd be likely to implement. File size restrictions aren't a big deal. (Although to be honest, if OP's avatar/signature were any more spinny then I'd have to ignore him. Not sure the bigger size would make for better pictures, in this case.)

    What's it matter if they're already checking, regardless?

    My first choice of an avatar was this:

    What makes it "dumb"? It's a simple illusion animation. Stop staring at it if it's that much of an issue to you...

    Sorry for the extremely late response. It's bad because this site would generate lots of additional traffic depending on the check frequency. That could potentially cause certain image hosts to outright ban hotlinking images to this site and others doing that. Granted it appears this site copies the image to their own CDN but it's only that way for avatars and not signatures.

    You can also block it with your AdBlocker like I did.

    Just a comment on the subject of premium etc...if you don't want people running adblockers on your site, get more reputable ads.

    I work in IT, and you still have WAY too many shady ads pushed through this place. I'll whitelist this place when the time comes that I don't have to worry about malware and other shady crap coming from your site. There are other things like browser extension redirectors that aren't enough to trip a malware detector but they're still changing the function of my computer, and are still bad in my book.

    Short version: Stop getting bad ads, and you'll get whitelisted. Till then, not happening.

    If we get larger sizes, please learn to press shift when resizing your image. Us peasants are tired of seeing stretched out anime signatures.
