Has David Lindon ever given custom avatars a chance at all. So his excuses for not allowing them are probably unjustified because he doesnt seem to have any good reason for it or giving it a chance at all. Actuially I say he has his reasons/excuses but he just says no without telling us why.
im reccomending you shut the hell up before i am forced to ban you.

there have been hundreds of threads on this subject. if you and your tiny little brain can manage to find the search box, type in custom avatars and the answer will be right before your eyes.

now, i know you are incapable of doing that (if you were, you would have found a hellalot of posts on exactly the same topic, with the answer and explination right there), so ill just say it, yes, it has been tried, and yes it did go horribly wrong, therefore david does noot allow it. it is his forum, if you dont like that, you know where the door is.. alternativley if you carry on posting crap like this, i will help you to that door.

I saw loads of can I have custom avatars threads and they were all locked saying David's allways said no. But David himself has never really made it clear why he says no which is the point I'm trying to make, perhaps it might help if he layed out his reasons formally.
so you joined in july, and you recon youve been lurking for 2 months, that makes it may this year. now, this forum has been in existance (on this board) since 2003, something tells me that you dont know everything that has ever gone on here.

And until he does so, these moderators will always have to deal with these avatar threads.

I like that on (<----) but yeah, more avatars would be better becuase most people know everyone by their avatars.

Like some other members have said,The Almighty subject of Custom avatars is always being brought up,Why cant people just get used to the point that this is never gonna happen!

But,if admin could upload a few more,it would be great (1+ Hascet)

exactly. i dont go onto forums to resize a pic to 80 x 80, set it as my avatar and then show it to people. that would be pointless as it takes a lot of time, the image would be too small, and it would generally suck. if i wanted to upload images id go on the many free image hosts including www.tinypic.com
i also wouldnt abuse the avatars because id stick to what we would be allowed to upload.

x2 - I haven't saw any other sites that had problems with custom avatars and I haven't saw many people hotlink their avatar on another site either.
