Me too. Avatars take more resources. I just dumped them as a precaustion because the Jay news broke, and traffic started to spike. I expect another major spike tomorrow as the news matriculates even further. And than another massive one next Monday...

So. The server has been going just fine with avatars and sigs. How bout just keep them there and if the site crashes, then atleast we don't have to worry about having another "I hate............." thread.

I find it hard to believe that monster sigs don't take up as much resources, but whatever.

It's not the size of them. It's the amount of server calls, and where those server calls are being pulled from. Avatars are mostly loaded on the site, so for each avatar on each page being displayed at any given time, it's a seperate server call. But signatures are *mostly* hosted on outside sites, and so it's not as server intensive as avatars are.

Me too ... sigs just clog up my reading.

Why are avatars gone now?
