There arn't just size problems with avators... there might also be people who make avators that arn't exactly allowed.

Hehe, at 50 X 50 Pixels, you'd have to have some zoom to put nasty stuff there.

Like Stupoo007, who put a picture of his ass on there for his avatar. That's one of the oldest avatars on GCXL too.

Why, don't you have the avatars be submitted for approval and if they are no good you say so and trash em but a good one with a generalized feeling to it like nothing personal should be put into a list so that ppl can just pick from some.

On Ikonboard (and there's probably a way to do it on UBB, too), the admins give the members a list of possible avatars. That works out really well.

There's a better way. Don't allow avatars. I have yet to see a non-stupid avatar on any message board.

I like the avatars idea. I've seen it done with a list of avatars that can be chosen, and it's just a nice add-on feature (like post counts and registration dates)

How about avatars with ranks? Once you hit being registered for a month and have maybe 50 posts you can upload an avatar..

Actually it's a WAY old feature.
There are several choices, to display ones name only, name+location or name+location+#posts.
For some reason up untill now the webmaster has choose the first.

And at this notion, UBB 6.2 is out, GET UPGRADED ALREADY!

And btw, UBB is the original.
All those lame copycats like vbulletin, YaBB, ikonboard and whatever have stolen from the UBB code to get where they are now.

Avatars are nothing but trouble unless there's a defined set (look at Tekken Zaibatsu, everybody picks a Tekken character and it not only prevents obscene avatars, it prevents "Who's your favorite?" posts).

I hate avatars. This new stuff is bad enough. Everything's so crowded now. I used to love this board's cleanliness.

I think avatars are more bother than worth it... all the old boys (and gals) would most likelly pick some cool OMF pictures and then every picture would be used at least 3 or 4 times, and all the newbies would add in tonns of stupid pictures from tekken, gundamwing and tuff.. not sayig those games are not cool, just unfitting.

I too wouldnīt like avatars, not only because some are too large, but also because every picture means additional loading time.
(Iīm lucky having a fast connection, itīs a matter of principle)

Besides, how long is it funny? Just look at the sigs - there are a few who use it regulary, I (for example) showed it at the beginning, now only once in a while - because it starts to annoy.
(unless you change the sig every two weeks)
