[i:82076af8e1]Earlier today, CoX forum-goer 'Monwolfen' realized there was a sudden and surprising disappearance of user avatars.
"I was surprised!" said Monwolfen when questioned, "I was reading, and suddenly they were gone!"
Later on, authorities entered the scene and began to search for clues that may have explained the surprising lack of personal-image.
"We think that someone must have stolen them," one random investigator was recorded commenting, "But other than that I don't know; do you want some pizza?"
Our reporter has failed to communicate since then, having spent the last several hours at a bar, drinking some rather interesting drinks, meeting some rather interesting people, and eating some rather good pizza.
Tune in later for an update on the story. Next up: Why penguins are fully capable of leading a massive army in a devastating attack against the world as we know it. Stay tuned![/i:82076af8e1]

[b:82076af8e1]Hehehe. However, for me at least, Avatars have indeed vanished.
Just wondering if this was a global thing, or 'my-computer-is-being-screwy' thing, hehe.[/b:82076af8e1]

Avatars are a bad idea when ppl deside to make the avatar a full wallpaper and it takes up the whole page.

That's probably why restrictions on avatar sizes exist on most forums

[b:8b0d43d1e6]Yes, but this forum had image restrictions; I'm quite sure I had an avatar twenty-four hours ago. After I made my CoH/CoV screenshot topic, I suddenly realized that my avatar had vanished.

[color=red:8b0d43d1e6]*[/color:8b0d43d1e6]

But really; image restrictions were enabled, and I didn't see anyone using a wallpaper-avatar, so why were they disabled...? Even if one person was using a wallpaper-sized image, couldn't that person have their avatar removed directly, instead of someone turning off the whole avatar option? It's not like everyone uses avatars to generally annoy others, hehe.[/b:8b0d43d1e6]

[color=red:8b0d43d1e6]*[/color:8b0d43d1e6][b:8b0d43d1e6]Well...maybe it's just me or something. Maybe I'm going mad...I could have sworn though...huh...[/b:8b0d43d1e6]

Avatars have never existed on these forums, or so I don't think they have, as Nemerle confirms so.

[quote:8732b20d42=\"gustav\"]isn't this an avatar ???

[b:790a833d3d]Indeed, that's a signature, heheh.


Well sheesh...I must be going slightly mad. Not surprising though. Anyway, cheerio mates! Sorry for being so seemingly random, lost and confused, and generally insensibly insane.[/b:790a833d3d]

Avatars have not been enabled for over a year in this community. Just an FYI.
