Any word on why this isn't done here?
Because I don't like them? Seems like a good reason to me.
I have noticed a lot more sig pics lately.
I wouldn't mind getting rid of those as well, but then I'd have to deal with the uprising of all the folders..
a good way to implement them, if ever, would be to have it as part of a forum profile option whereby the default profile is set to omit avatars from display.
But then as the administrator, I'd have to look at them all the time to make sure they were acceptable (or disable user-made avatars).
Of course, that (hiding avatars) isn't possible with the default phpBB install.
Being right doesn't matter if no one listens.
