Na'vi Blue

Ed,

Someone somewhere remarked that they did not like the color of the BBS site. Heck, it's cool! Na'vi blue! The only color better would be pine green!

I have been reading on how the site works. Finally we have a site that you can post pictures using it instead of a third-party e-mail program. Cool! The avatar image feature for the users is a nice concept but is almost useless. I have several avatars but almost all are above that measly 6kb limit. Most of mine average 16kb or so. Reducing file size makes them too fuzzy to use. Most are 70x70 or 90x90 pixels in size.

Also I resize all my images for posting at 640x480 at roughly 150kb in size. This site has a 5 meg limit? I don't think I have ever gone much over a meg, even with multiple images.

I was hoping to get into the woods to do some measuring tomorrow but I don't think it will happen. Car problems.

Ed, ENTS

I have no idea why this posted twice?

James,

I changed the avatar size to 12 KB, the 5 is the default on the board.

Ed,

That should help. Thanks. Are they any way you can change the minimum character number on a post or reply? The minimum is 50 which makes simple answers or replies impossible.

Hey, Ed!

I like that new Na'vi blue button on the main ENTS website. That's cool!

Will there be a link button to the old Google site to view archived posts still located there?

James,

Don't you mean hideous blue? There is a button link back to the Google Group at the bottom of the page with the word Archive written in big red letters over the old button.

James, to reduce the size of the image- in addition to making it smaller in pixel resolution, you can reduce the number of colors which should easily get your small images down to the size you like. You can do this with Photoshop or Paintshop Pro and many other programs. When I did it with my image it hardly looks any different.
