i love to see the colorful pix and as the one who loves graphic, talking about milan in this forum will be more cool by having graphics on it..
i couldn't agree any more. but the problem is that these graphics simply became too BIG any ppl stopped carring if other users need 5 minutes to open a page because of their signatures. few weeks ago a user, i don't remember who it was, had a 600Kb gif image in his signature. that takes 3-4 minutes to download on a dial-up connection. and then it has to be downloaded every time i, or any other dial-up user, open a page where that guy posted. nobody wants or needs that

maybe the admin should think, how to limit the size of avatar and sign..
i think this wd b better,
for e.g., everybody must have 60x60 sized of ava, or something..
the size of avatars and sigs IS limited in the forum rules, but you cannot FORCE somebody to have a small avatar as the forum script doesn't allow that. that's why all the problems
