Default Can we have avatars back?

Just checking - to the administrators.

Is the traffic OK for us to re-activate our avatars? I figured we would be running at normal volume until the draft.

Just checking....

I will bump this, but i have to add something in:

I do not have avatars & Signatures turned on due to me being a slacker and viewing the OM at work. Even though none were rated "R" - it doesn't look as bad if i get my hands slapped as it does with the soft porn pics.

It slows down the whole board, especially when traffic is high (over 100 users). But, we shouldn't have that problem very much for the next couple months (until the combine and draft).

So, why is it that they were taken away? Is it really because too many people were on?

I've never understood all the complaining about avatars. I see them AND signatures. I always have. Do you guys really not see them? I wonder if your settings are messed up.

I did hear once that only the really, really good posters were being allowed to keep them, but that could have just been rumor.

I don't really understand why avatars would be turned off but signatures would be kept around. I find them far more annoying than avatars.

It's because most of the avatars are uploaded to the OrangeMane server.... while most posters' sigs are remotely uploaded to webhosts like imageshack or photobucket... and then linked here.

TJ explains it in the stickied thread, but traffic to the Mane was heavy enough Sunday night and Monday that the board would have crashed if avys were turned on at the time. I think most posters would prefer to have an accessible... if avy-less... forum rather than to have it even occasionally unavailable.

TJ also said on the other thread that he's looking into ways of bringing back avys.... perhaps on the condition that they be linked to photobucket or imageshack like most of the sigs are. He'll get it sorted out.
