    Default Why no external avatars?

    Why are we stuck with only the avatars in the system? Why can't we link to outside files? Kind of curious.
    Want compression? Buy a race engine.
    Lossless audio is the only kind of audio.

    Why can't we link to real avatars?????????

    Lots of reasons. Bandwidth for one, not being able to control what they are, having them cause pages to load slow or stretch them. It's just nice and simple this way.

    Brett - Is there something in the FAQ about this? The avatar question seems to come up almost as often as a Sam vs Dave thread.

    I applaud Brett for the way he runs this site. All that extra bandwidth and stretching of pages is unnecessary. For me at work the Army takes forever to load.

    BTW, when I started this post DTNA was on the radio.

    I wished they were at least 80x80 but ok. I don't have uploadable avatars on my board either
