As I am sure you've noticed, the avatars are kind of going crazy right now. However, it looks like the new avatar size will be 170 X 170. Don't go crazy making icons just yet, though, because I am waiting for Yuku to confirm that.

Second, Yuku has just released the new profile skin editor. The skin editor is a feature many of you have been waiting for. To get you started, they have added a basic skin editor tutorial. http://tutorials.yuku.com?topic=61

Enjoy! Let me know if you have any questions! Image

Really? I actually think I like them better. The new profiles use 170 x 170, so I think that will probably be the new size. So, it would be like Stefan's avatar:

To be honest I don't like them either, they're just massive!

If it turns out that they are optional, we can do a poll or something. I haven't heard either way, though.

Yeah, I think if that's the way it has to be, everyone will get used to it. 100x100 looks small, but when we were on ezboard, it was like, 50x50, which I can't even imagine, lol.

They are working on them. I don't think they've decided if they will change or not. We'll see, I guess. I'll keep checking in, though.

At first I hated them, but when I was making a new avatar I was glad I had some more space! Now I like them.

If they decide to keep them we should change the size of the usernames too. They are so small compared to the big avatars.

I think it looks ok, but yeah, I guess we'll see once they decide which way they want to go. The new profiles have 170x170, old profiles 100x100, and board specs are for unlimited height and 170 width. ::shakes head::

I want a bigger avatar. Image

They probably changed it to get everyone to upgrade to the new profiles. lol

BTW I think I saw some avatars with a larger height than 100px before?

Stefan's avatar pops out. I guess we should make avatars 150x150.

Did they just add a share on twitter button or was it there before? Nice feature, now we can share the topics on twitter without using shorturls and stuff, right?

Yup, they fixed/added a few things:


Hello friends,

 The following changes have been pushed to our servers:

* The WYSIWYG post editor can now fully be used in safari and chrome

* Kudos are now called points. Any mention of kudos has been changed to points.

* A share option has been added at the bottom of the editor, in public forums. You can use the share option when starting a new topic, or when replying to an existing topic via regular reply or quick reply.

Image

Share via Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo or MySpace

Image

Simply connect to the desired option and share.


Bug fixes in this push:

** Some avatars on boards are going out of proportion : Fixed (If you still see your avatar too large on the board, please re-upload it)

** Login at boards redirects you to the very bottom of the directory: fixed

** Some avatars on the profile page go far out of size: Fixed

Thank you
Yuku Team

Right now, if you reupload an avatar, I believe it will go back to 100 x 100. It is still not final, though. It's considered a bug. I don't know if 100 x100 is going to be the final size. I don't believe so, because the size is larger in the profiles.
