Avatar Categories

For greater ease of finding the type of avatar you are looking for, the avatars have now been divided into the categories below. Please select the appropriate category, depending on what type of avatar you are looking for:

Male Avatars - This would be human males (or elf, dwarf, humanoid males, or possibly some other entity clearly bearing a strong resemblence to a human male).

Female Avatars - Like the male avatars only with resemblance to a human female being the defining characteristic.

Misc Avatars - This is the catch-all category for any avatars that don't really fit well into the "male avatars" or female avatars classifications. Examples would be various animals and creatures (whose gender is not obvious to humans at a glance), abstract art, or inanimate objects.

Avatar FAQ's (Frequently Asked Questions):

Q1. Why 90x90 pixels? Why not 80x80 or 100x100 or some other size?

A. It seemed like a good size to match what a lot of forums allow. Some forums will allow larger sizes (but generally still allow you to use 90x90). Others may have a lower size limit. In the case of a lower limit, feel free to resize an avatar to fit the limit. If you don't have any software to do that, you might want to try The Gimp. It's free, available for multiple operating systems, and has many other fine features.

Q2. Why are the avatars in gif format? Why not jpeg or png or some other format?

A. Gif offers a combination of good compression and wide acceptance. Also, I find that gif images are often clear and crisp compared to jpeg.
