Is there a preferred avatar creator website to be used with this forum?
Tried quite a few. Aware of max pixel size. Just every ulr I attempt seems invalid.
Interesting to see that I am not the only one.

I think when I talked to THE admin he said he is having his web guy looking into it so it should be resolved soon.

We will try to fix the avatars when we do the software update tomorrow (see the global if you haven't already).

So avatars should be fixed but, the one you like might be too big:

One thing to note that picture that your user is linking (https://49.media.tumblr.com/a684d6a0809 ... o1_500.gif) exceeds the allowed avatar width and height. The current max is 180x180 and I personally wouldn't go over 250x250 but you can adjust that how you want in the settings. One other thing I would suggest is having your users reupload the avatars to more reliable hosts such as imgur.com and hotlink off them.


So we can make the size for avatars a little bigger but not huge. What do y'all think?

So even when I set it to the exact height and width allowed it still won't allow it? But okay thanks!

Hey hey hey, I think it might have to do with the forum not coping so well with https?! Try removing the s of https and see if it works!

I enjoy it. I'm mostly catching up after not watching it since Toonami shut down. Now that was a travesty! :(

BUT....if it makes you feel better I am taking a break for a bit. Almost done with the original Naruto run. Not sure if I really want to go down the rabbit hole that is Shippuden. :lol:

The gif was meant to be that suggestion ;)
Watch OnePunch Man :D it's an amazing anime, the first season finale aired a few weeks ago. The thing that stands out about it the most is the superb animation it has, bringing in animators from Naruto, Kill la Kill, Attack on Titan, and Space Dandy, some of which are also amazing anime (Kill la Kill in particular ;) ). Here's an example of the awesome animating in this show.
