I believe TJ turned them off for performance reasons now that we are in "On Season" mode.

I'll tell you, though I'm not really complaining per se, but I've really been losing interest in this place and I think the loss of avatars is the reason. I'm making just 3-4 posts at a time, almost forcing myself.

Here's why (I think), follow me here: Avatars are like faces, and since I value the social interaction here as much as the football, the loss of avatars is being at a get-together where everyone is wearing a mask. You see their name-tags, but you can't see their face. It's become very frustrating for me.

I've got to admit, I miss the avatars too. They really express the personalities around here.

Yup, they needed to turn off the 250 X 250 avatars for performance reasons yet they let the 600 wide X 100 high/300 wide X 250 high sigs remain..........makes perfect sense to me

Actually Hogan, siggies take much less bandwidth because they are not hosted directly on the server (or at least mostly not)

For example, your latest sig is hosted on Photobucket and not here.

Avatars are all hosted directly here and very few are linked to other websites therefore, the bandwidth hit is MUCH higher.

Well I won't feel subversive if I make a big sig then ...

And so, why not host sigs on Photobucket and ImageShack?

Yeah, why not? You said "very few" are linked to other websites, why not use them more?

Or is there a monetary number Taco needs to upgrade the server speed?

Heck, if you ask me, we could make it mandatory to make all avatars and sigs off site IMO. That's what sites like photobucket and other photo hosting sites are for anyway right?

I would think there would be a option for linking them offsite as opposed to uploading them straight on here. Maybe TJ can find that option and adjust it.
