I'm seeking some opinions on custom avatar uploads to your forums. Do you allow it? If you do what KB/dimensions do you keep it under? Most of all, do you know of any security risks in allowing these uploads...?

Thanks in advance for your help in this. Shocked

For me, it really depends on the type of site. On most sites I allow uploads as long as they are under 6kb and 80x80 or under. On a few I limit users to what I provide. General rule of thumb (for me anyway) is "on" for personal sites and "off" for business sites.

If its a setup for somebody else, I always turn off uploads and off-site avatar linking off and let the person who will be webmastering the site decide what's best for him/her.

I feel more comfortable, security-wise, with uploads than off-site linking.

I allow them on my site, I limit the size to 90 x 90 and file size around 25k I think because my members use animations and fancy ones.

I maxd mine at 150 for 3 different sites, seems to work pretty well. People still have a bit of room to play without it going over board.

So from everything you guys (or gals) have put, you haven't had any security problems with this and don't see that there would be any either?
