    I haven't seen this thread before but I thought it might be a good idea!

    As forum owners, what avatar dimensions do you like? Personally I'm a fan of 180x180, I like an avatar that isn't too small but isn't massive either, it's one of the first things I change on the postbit as I find the default 96x96 for XenForo too tiny! (Especially for gifs!)

    I think that's possibly a little niche dependant. Personally I don't like sizes that cause a lot of white space below one line replies. 180x180 would generally be too big for my forums but I wouldn't go below 96x96. I think 120x120 is the largest I've used.

    The ones here (which I think are 96 x 96) seem ideal to me.

    Roleplay forums tend to run larger; 120x250 isn't atypical there.

    96x96 looks nice ;)

    Size should be relative to given space for it I think. Sometimes they are round and the dimension is small. Which makes them harder to see. Esp on mobile.

    I generally use the 96x96px for the postbit section, with a maximum upload dimension of up to 200x200px avatars.
    The most recent customization I've made uses the larger size 192x192px dimensions in the postbit though:

    It's a little different and I like it anyway...

    Every design forum I've made has been 200x200, I like this because it really makes it pops.

    192x192 here, as the people show photos they have made.
