Why no avatars?

Post by energy » Thu Sep 06, 2007 3:22 pm

I seem to recall this being asked a long time ago, but searching didn't bring anything up. So the question is, why can't we use avatars here in the forum, when we're allowed to put a much bigger picture in our profile?

The main issue is that someone will upload inappropriate pictures as their avatar. I have to review every one, and there's been a fair share of ones I had to delete.

The forum software doesn't have any feature built in to allow them to be reviewed. But I suppose there's a way to make the profile image show up as an avatar.
