    What's the big deal? If the webmaster doesn't allow it, then you can't have it. It's their site, not ours. I'm here for the info anyway.

    tashi:

    Great job!!!

    However, there may be an unforeseen problem. You have included so many avatars for people to choose from, I envision people frittering away hour after hour trying to decide among them all.

    Now you're going to have to come up with something like a Myers-Briggs personality test to help people narrow their choices.

    Getting an answer is one thing, learning is another.

    *sigh That is more than 50 pages of Avatars. I'll need one hour, before I can choose one. Lols, all of them look so good.

    I still haven't decided lol

    too many pages! How about increasing the number of avatars per page? Or like md usa spybot fan said, having a select few?

    Another idea is that instead of having people uploading images, how about having people using image urls?

    Perhaps. Did so for the penquins.

    I had the impression md usa spybot fan was making a joke. However such a decision would be based on user input.

    A large choice seems preferable to having none at all, and bear in mind that one person's preferences might not be another's.

    I wouldn't like to remove a person's favourite.

    Sorry not likely, that was the point regarding such as being a security issue and why we didn't, and probably won't, provide that permission.

    There are also other matters at hand to address, rather than spending one's day checking each new member's avatar to make sure it is appropiate for a family forum.

    Stock avatars are a nice solution, I hope people will enjoy the option.

    Cheers.
