    Looks like Scott has removed them to try to clear the Bandwidth problem up.

    There is a hack that allows you to assign your own 'off server' Avatar, that is Scott wants it I will send it to him, but that does leave things open to abuse though.

    To be honest, everyone's Avatar's are nice and all but if it will keep the forums quicker then screw them.

    Heh, I only made one post after changing into my new custom avatar. Oh well, one is better than zero.

    I haven't noticed any changes in speed this morning. There is still some lag and hesitations. I'm using a T1 at work.

    I don't think the avatars are exclusively responsible for this bandwith hogging.

    How about allowing Avatars for anyone over 750 posts or something? <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

    It just seems like at certain points in the day, the forums are really really laggy. With or without avatars.

    The avatars do have some effect on bandwidth as I'm on a dial-up and have noticed a faster response time while accessing this site.
    Stress.... The uncontrollable urge to choke the living $417 out of someone who desperately needs it.

    Ignorance.... The inherent capacity to demand of someone else that which one is too lazy to learn/perform for one's self.

    User....An individual who, through immense proportions of ignorance, create stress.
