    I wanted to start this thread to log any feature requests that forum members might have. For example, increased avatar size.

    If you have other requests let me know. We may not be able to implement everything but we'd at least like to hear what you would like.

    Thanks!

    Limit was increased to 200k. It might get reduced if this significantly affects page loads.

    It still says a 130KB image is too big for se reason

    Apparently Its because my gif is 200X200 instead of 128X128

    It can be a bigger less lossy file if it's under 200 pixels

    Hey @mark5280

    Is there any chance that you could put a validation step in the user sign up, one of those annoying tick box/type/pick all the trees captcha things or an e-mail validation?

    It might halt the rise of the bots a little. Is pretty damn annoying at the moment lol.

    I haven't seen ANY posts from bots... thanks for keeping me blissfully ignorant of the forum's seedy underbelly, @mcherry

    They tend to come when you Americans are all in bed!! It’s between maybe 6am and 12pm our time when I’d be commuting and/or on morning break and is annoying when you want to peruse the forums then lol!

    @mcherry does do an excellent job of cleaning them up!!

    Actually, believe it or not, bots are better at captchas then people are.

    I always find making a custom validation works 100% better as the buts are likely not programed for it.

    For example, you could ask the question. "What is the name of this record club" and then the person would have to answer "Vinyl Me, Please".

    @mark5280

    When you ignore someone, is it possible to make them go away completely. I don't need the threads they are posting in to let me know they posted:

    Not a suggestion, but who do I need to talk to about changing my screen name?
    To commemorate my return to the ranks of vmp subscribers I'm thinking a rebrand is appropriate.

    we're still waiting on a response to tightening spam filters, so it might be awhile.
