Whoa :eek:

Eli Hodapp aka the TA FP contributor has one.. does it mean we get it too in the near future?

I looked at my User CP and there's an Edit Avatar Setting but currently not active.

Darn arn. Why do you have to do this to us. If it is that easy to enable avatars, why not do it?

Yeah, I want to use an animated gif of a guy in a bear costume dancing on a table as my avatar. Is that so bad?

On a more serious note, I think no means no :(

because it takes server space.

avatars are usually around 1MB each times the number of all TA users = about 1GB space... maybe?

Maybe. I'd send him a new HD if that's all he needs.

The bigger issue as I understand it is the Pandora's box of extra moderation allowing site-wide avatars will open.

hmm.. that's true. you'd never know when someone posts something offensive/vulgar

maybe assign an avatar mod. im leaving it up to arn/blake. fingers crossed :D

Just want to voice my opinion against avatars, it will add to much clutter, the signatures are already too long as it is.

Ah I was wondering why the only option was No Avatar :cool:

Makes sense I suppose as like you said it takes server room and then you'll always get the stupid 'I like to show people I like to look at skin' avatars -.-
