Avatars Return to DiabloFans.com

Well, it's been quite some time now since the hubub of the big annoucement, and at last things have settled down to a level where myself and the other mods feel that the risk of server strain is worth returning Avatars to everyone.

As of this moment, all avatar privileges are restored. There is a maximum width and height of 150x150 pixels. For now, only staff members can upload animated avatars (to help ease server strain), but this may change in the coming weeks and/or months.

A WORD OF CAUTION: Do not abuse these privileges. This is a strictly "abuse 'em and lose 'em" situation. Should there be a rampant mistreatment of the avatar system (pornographic or insulting avatars, etc) then they will all be removed once more. Let's hope it doesn't come to that.

Enjoy, everyone! :D

    I recommend implementing a certain post requirement for animated avatars. Possibly something like 1000+ posts.

    A good idea. My only hesitation with setting something like that up right now is that VBulleting essentially sucks ass and I'd have to make a new UserGroup and move everyone with over 1000 posts into it. It might just be easier to wait a few weeks, see if people decide to behave with the avatars and if so, grant them to all. :)

    Whatever is easiest for the staff is fine with me.

    I didn't think my opinion was all that important.

    Off Topic:
    With transparency, my avatar looks sick.

    No - book cover art from one of my fav authors - Brian Lumley.

    Acid has another pic from him too.

    Agreed Goodguy, your avatar looks badass with transparency. And agreed Jetrall, best to make sure nobody abuses the avatars before bringing back animated avatars, though I would of led by example and had nobody with animated avatars. ;D

    Seriously though, glad to see avatars back. Now I have to make a new avatar...
  • #19 Doppelganger
    I'm wondering if i might be the only one holding an animated avatar at the moment.
    Sounds nice to me.

    PRE-NINJA EDIT: Anakyn, lol, how did i overlook you? (but you are of course a mod, and i'm not ;))

    There were a few users who had animated ones, back before avatars were disabled. So theirs would also still be active, if they were to post.
