Avatars

Here's the deal: this software doesn't allow for a limit on avatars. Your choices are ON and OFF. Which do you people want?

I have no problem with people being original when they're posting on boards (except when they use 5 different font sizes and 7 differnt colors in one post), but there have been too many cases, in my opinion, of the use of avatars causing too much annoyance to so many others that I can't see it being worth keeping them.

But, since I don't use them, it isn't a huge thing to me I suppose.

The vote here was inconclusive, at best, on the issue of avatars.

So here's what I did: I found another option that allows me to limit avatars based on a user's "status." So I set it so that if you're a regular, you'll quickly get to use your avatar (I figured a regular won't be an asshole about a 600-pixel-wide image)...

Once you get your number of posts up to 100 (three stars), you get to use avatars. Before that, no dice. Some folks are already there, and a lot of others will be before too long.

I hope that's fair... and that people don't start posting idiotic one word posts just to inflate their total so they can have they're little avatars. Cuz then I'll just shut them off for everybody.

Don't use 'em myself - don't intend to. I can pretty well live with whatever you decide. But, if someone starts inflating their post total so they can have "little" avatars, I wouldn't be bothered. However, if they started putting on one-word posts so they can slam some 800x600 animated GIF down everyone's connection....

WHAM! POW! To the MOON!

(or however that goes.)

Seriously, do as you feel best. It is your site, after all...

about the one word posts simply so thay can get their avatars up:

as moderator, couldn't you simply delete them and knock their total post count back down? Or does the software allow that? I know this would probably be a time consuming process for you but it's worth a thought.

I like to think that people here rather enjoyed seeing Stacy Keibler flashing her ass to Nick Patrick every time I made a post. The 100 post idea does sound like a good solution though. I doubt there are more than a handful of idiots who would make stupid little posts just to reach the avatar quota. If anything it should increase valid and meaningful posting.

don't know... if I'm asking then I guess it's because i'd be interested to know what would you prefer. You see, this is still a communuty albeit an internet one, so one should *dress up* diligently and make the best out of his account...

All for the avatar as long as EVERYBODY is kind enough to make them the same size so there are no problems.





What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
