Greetings!  I'm working on the new site layout, and while our current avatar size of 125x125px has worked well for a long time, the design would work better if avatars were no bigger than 100x100px.  So, I decided to take a poll.  Please vote with your choice.  This pull will run for 7 days.

Pretty much everyone's avatar is currently bigger than 100x100, but it's not really that big of a size drop.

And, since one person has done this already:  If you vote "other", and don't leave a comment explaining your idea, your vote will not count.

May I ask how the 25p difference would make the design work better?

For others as an example, my avatar is 100x100p.

It's an issue of alignment, really, and getting all the text to fit properly in the new design.  The extra 25px under each avatar would allow things to fit a lot better in the header area.  It'll make sense when I get a prototype completed :-)

If it all fits I'm okay with a reduction in size. Most sites already have the 100x100p set up.

You know, I never realized that it was 125-max. I had always thought it was 100, which is how I tried to size my avatar.
So, since I am used to it, and if it is better for the site, go with the 100-max.

Actually, Hale was helping me with the design for this, and we came up with something that doesn't require shrinking the avatar size.  So, umm, thanks for voting everyone, but this isn't necessary anymore.  And, we have a layout now!  Yay!
