    Unhappy Why can't we use custom avatars


    Ive used other vBulletin forums and members are given the option
    of adding avatars to there posts, why have DevShed disabled
    this option anyone know

    Yeah I've noticed that toooo.... why oh why, admins?

    P.S. that is more like 'longue' type of question...

    coz the forums are slow enough as it is, can you imagine how slow they would be if everyone had custom avatars too

    Yeah, Alcapone your right it's a lounge question silly me...


    And Silky i don't think avatars would slow the forum down at all
    a 50x50 pixel image is not gonna bring the house down
    and most members woudn't use this option


    So come on, mister moderator let us have our avatars

    The Ape, avatar is a little picture that [supposely] represents ya. You can see them used usually right by the name, and you get to pick one image to go with your posts (kinda like signature)
    And you know I mean that.

    Maybe because *some* people might actully use the admin Avatar to try and trick people... Just a though
    Quick, think of something geeky to say before they catch on!

    I agree that it would be nice for the members to be able to have avatars.

    I'll bring it up in the next company meeting.
