    Yes, it is the photo under the name to the left of the posts. Examples would be in this thread, on that page where Groovy Granny, two_wheels, Sarahlabyrinth, and Quasiquixotic all have quite large avatars. (Managed to find a thread with many of them on the same page, haha).

    Since it seems to be possible it would be nice to know how, I want big avatar too!

    Good examples! Drilling down, it relates to the "1000 posts + 1 year membership" user permission tier. The standard is the 100x100, though with the extra tier it gets bumped to 150x150. I'll have to consider modifying the permissions list pages to reflect that difference.

    Actually I'm pretty sure I get a bigger avatar because there is a cat in mine and the internet loves cats

    Aha! Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but Iíve been wondering if the differently sized avatars have something to do with user permissions, and it looks like thatís the case. 1000 posts and 1 year for 150 pixels - noted, Gumball. It also looks like you managed to unlock the deluxe avatar tier, Estrid.

    They unlock the fancy tier by default.

    Wishing Iíd found this thread before trying to - very unsuccessfully - upload more than ten versions of my avatar, with different pixel and file sizes, in an attempt to inflate it a bit. If the servers go down, you all know where to point fingers

    It's so odd, I don't think I ever paid attention to the size of my avatar.

    Just be glad that you were spared my would-be thread: "How do I make it bigger?"

    Itís only to make the stars come through a bit more, tie it together with the username. Yours already stands out nicely, lapushka

    Thanks! Yours is pretty special too, IMO!

    Thanks!

    Wondering if the user permissions page will be updated, but it's no biggie (had to).
