What's the height (compared to normal people) where it becomes Macro?

Most of the time I figure double-sized tends to start macro off quite well, but 20ft is a nice round number to base things off of.

Well, when I hear ‘macro’, I usually think of around a hundred feet, but I guess twenty feet qualifies.

I dunno, when I think of macro, I think 'beyond normal human scale' 9 feet seems like a good number for macro, but if we're talking about GIANT macro, 20 feet seems more fitting. But in terms of personal prefrence, I like 9 feet.

Hmmmm...I think someone's a macro as soon as they're large enough to kill another person using their bare hands. Or some other body part. :twisted:

As to define 'macro', I went for twenty feet. Some might refer to nine feet as giant, and maybe I do, but I prefer macro as being larger than that.

That makes me macro, with my lethal martial arts skills. 8)
Heh, but you probably mean more like rip them apart, or just crush them.

Well, as the polls show so far, half the people here wouldn't consider me macro at my smallest height of 12 feet, which I'm usually found at....

I generally consider (though there can be situational deviations) that the term 'macro' involves a ratio of at least 2:1. So, with that criterion, and a 'normal' six-foot human, twelve feet in height would be the beginning of the macro realm in that situation.
I solemnly swear I am up to no good.

I consider anyone who can't stand up in a regular-height, single-story room without their head bursting through the ceiling to be macro. If I'm not mistaken, most ceilings are at about 12', so anything above that--20 being a good round number, to be certain--would be considered macro. Below 12', and they're just...hot. :D
