Why dont we have any image avatars?
I've seen forums with guidelines when it comes to avatars regarding size and such.

This has been gone into before I think... and I believe that the answer is that the more stuff that ppl have to download the longer it takes, the harder it is to maintain for Malcolm and the less time that Seven gets someone to play with him...
I think that we have a lot of freedom here so I for one am quite happy the way that it is...

It also helps serve to let people know who admin and mods are at a glance...but the download time is the primary issue.
I am on another board where they are allowed and after a survey it showed that a majority of the people on the board used the don't show avatar option for that reason.
