Your first click here takes me to a page not found, or was that your intention?

Many on line forums use avatars, this is more for FE and his IT guys to decide on. I have avatars on a number of forums, none of which is my real image. I did enjoy the recent thread inviting members to post images of themselves, something that 4gig has a problem with?

It was just a bit of fun and enjoyed by many members.

I expect that adding another aspect of registration would slow down the whole system and put people off from becoming memebers.

No to avatars, no to glittery sigs, no to huge banners ... one of the things I enjoy about this forum is its minimalist approach. If you want an example of eye-bleeding forum clutter at its worst, have a browse through this one: click here

Well said, minimalist is best. I find some on forums people spend more time on the frills than the subject.

To use an analogy - I look upon this forum as 'The Tree of Knowledge' start bringing in avatars and the like and it would soon look like a 'Christmas Tree'

that the day we have avatars/signatures/machine specs on this forum will be the day that I ride off into the sunset.

I can't bear those sites with pretentious signature lines, such as "Life is a pure flame, and we live by an invisible sun within us" or "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."

Pass me the bucket.

Where did you get those awful homilies from, Peter? The one I linked to? Horrendous, and clearly put up by people who take themselves far too seriously.

I believe they are from some of his t-shirts ;o)
