What Are Your Avatar and Attachment Size Limits?

    In the past I had limits on vb4 but not on Xenforo. What would you suggest for file size limits to regular registered users? Should a premium usergroup have bigger sizes?

    I'm sure I set attachments to 2 meg and haven't touched the avatar settings so that is default whatever size (kb) that may be.

    Because I can't limit my users attachments (how many they can upload), I only allow url's and so far, it hasn't been a problem.
    Having a pet forum, you can expect everyones posts having LOTS of images. Very rarely will someone post a topic without an image.

    I'm a bit nervous about allowing.zip files, there could be anything in there. At least with images someone's going to report anything dodgy immediately.

    I agree.

    In post #6 I show allowing them, but have since removed zip from the allowed extension types.
