    Avatars are off for now. It's interesting it let you define one, though. We'll restrict to a photo in your user pages, though, I think we need to upsize that a bit to something reasonable.

    IIRC, we have avatars turned off initially. We may revisit that decision in the future, however.

    My vote: leave them turned off. I've seen some forums where there is so much clutter associated with *each* post (avatars, sigs, buttons, post counts, membership status, poster's location, poster's favorite color, etc) that a simple "Thank you" followed by a "You're welcome" results in a full web page.

    Yes, please turn (or leave) off everything flashy. This new layout is way too busy. I read these forums for the content and it's now harder to read than it was before.

    Ahh, they've decided no going back to the lovely clean old forum so why not embrace the future? It'll keep the Alzheimers at bay to learn new things.

    (That and the Scotch lubrication/crainial rinsing are my preventitive measures)

    Ken - you might try the "almost no images" style/view. Scroll to the bottom of the page to find the style box on the left, and change from the default. Also, Tom said he'd be working on different "skins" for people to use. Although I'm hoping for a paisley, "psycho-delic" one to take me back to the '60s, I'm confident that at least one of them will be very minimalistic.

    I reckon your avatar is a bit big frank. If they do get switched on then 50x50 or 64x64 should be big enough otherwise download of any thread uses a huge amount of bandwith.

    [edit]just realised those are profile images and not avatars[/edit]
