So avatars might be possible? Maybe if you want an avatar you pay $5.00 a month or something due to the fact that it uses bandwidth etc...

Yeah, it's the only avatar that I'm aware of. There has been debate as far back as October of last year. Arn has explained that it is disabled because.... Well something to do with site traffic, page optimization or something. hopefully there will be a happy medium in the future to allow for avatars.

Are you ****ing mad. It's not gonna cost $5 worth of bandwidth per avatar, per month! I know this site is popular but seriously, if we actually paid that, the admins would be away on holiday too often to actually run anything around here.

Well, considering the fact the how many views the forum gets, a few hundred kilobits per avatar in each page of a thread adds up quickly. So maybe not like $5.00 but maybe like $2.00 or something it's just a thought.
