Posted:I think the general deal is that if everyone were allowed to have avatars, it would slow the site down way too much.

Oh well.

Posted:I'd love one. But if it means that each page is going to take three minutes to load, then that's not really worth it.

And think of the poor blokes who are stuck in the stone age on 56K modems! Oh, the humanity!

i have 56k modem and things load quickly for me, never have to wait for anything on HOP.All HTML (i.e. Text) on HOP is run through special compression software on the server before delivery through the internet. All browsers have decompression software already built in, and this uncompresses the HOP pages for display.
This means if the HTML content of a page on HOP is 60Kb it will be compressed to less than 1/4 of its size and will load as fast as a 15Kb page. Compression and decompression times are almost undetectable.

Fast is good
This means less bandwidth to pay for and faster downloads. However this compression only works on HTML and does not work on graphics or video files etc.
Avatars could load up the bandwidth and slow the discussion pages lots if many people had them.

Hope that all makes some sense.
