    Does the CPA support avatars, you know, the little pictures that go up under your name. This thread is more to the administrators than anybody else.

    No, we don't. They take quite a bit of time to load on slower machines, and while they're pretty, they serve no particular purpose. I don't really like the feature on MtGNews, and I don't like the idea of implementing it here.

    We don't need them.

    What I hate is that on MTGN, everyone just HAS TO HAVE a (poorly) animated one.

    If the CPA doesn't support avatars, somebody might want to remove the avatars section in FAQ

    Well... First of all, we wouldn't know HOW to get rid of 'em. Second, the system DOES support them, we just keep them turned off.

    :confused: Are you laughing at me? I don't use avatars myself, mainly because most of the time they are an eye-sore. I just had a question on them when I was going through what the CPA supports. And I wanted to know why if the CPA could support avatars(which it doesn't), that nobody used them. It really bothered me.

    We do support them (their in vB), but their bandwidth hogs and we're close to our bandwidth limit anyway, so I don't want to have them enabled here. I don't really wanna have to pay for more bandwidth.

    maraud234, I wasnt laughing at you...

    I was laughing at Zadok's post...none of the assistant admins really know how to operate this thing..I find it funny.

    It's one of those areas that only Ed has access to, that's why... although I could see why you'd think I wouldn't be able to figure it out, given my nick :)

    Why do we keep asking about avatars? It's a little icon on the bottom of your name. Here's an idea: write more in your sig, not too much more, but more.
