OT-Avatar Frustration

Submitted by Ziff72 on January 31st, 2010 at 9:42 PM

Not sure if I'm just struggling technically, but I'm frustrated at not being able to enlarge the avatar's. I come across an interesting avatar and I want see exactly what it is and I can't. Am I missing something or is this a technological blind spot??

I'm fairly certain the pictures that people select as their avatar get converted to a much smaller size (100x100ish) before they are saved on the server or whatever that thing is called.

I was all excited that someone else wouldn't like the movie "Avatar" either...I'd like to get a couple of the pics too--especially Homer with the sniper rifle.

I don't know if this will work, but it helped me find a picture for my wife a while back. It has to be on posted somewhere on the web though. You probably have to download the pic of the avatar first. Good luck.

I tried it for Nantucket Blue's avatar below and got some larger versions (but only marginally bigger).

Men often have trouble enlarging their avatars because they can only get it up for smurfy-cats, ostensibly with highly enzymatic genital secretions that stimulate the epidermis, but lead to long-term desensitization. Must be the diet.
