I have noticed that some longer threads are rather difficult to read through and I think that it would help if all members had avatars.

So this is me urging you to pick an avatar if you have not already done so, otherwise I might start picking them for you in the future. Twisted Evil

I disabled all those useless smileys and avatars aswell as your signature picture. That helps a lot since now it doesn't distract and annoy me anymore time. It reduces the thread length, too.

When you get multipile post of people without an avatar it gets though to read in my opinion because it is harder to distinguish between post while just passing over there quickly. Having an avatar would not make posts take up more space (well a little perhaps).

And I agree about the signature, which is why only officers can have them.

Whenever I need to know who wrote what I just read I look at the user's name. I'm not screwed up when there is an avatar change. I can focus on the informations not being attacked by animated pictures (those are most annoying).

I don't see any advantage in having everyone take such a picture, only disadvantages.

A little experiment: I feel it is easier to differentiate between images than usernames.

That being said most of the 'problems' arose in the cape contest, but putting the designs in spoilers fixed those.

I feel like you misunderstood me though as I only joked about making them mandatory (just like the avatar I gave you now, feel free to delete it). I hint at the possibilities though I guess some might like a forum with a more rigid look.
