Could the board be updated to allow us to either upload or link to images to use as avatars.

Thank you.

Thanks for your input. I have not yet added this feature due to security concerns. I may be adding it in the future after further testing. We do currently offer 100's of avatars to choose from.

Thanks, I'm just used to the NWI Times board and have had my avatar for quite a while and I am a bit partial to it. I really appreciate your quick response to my query.

Let me cast my ballot, too, in favor of being able to upload our own avatars. While I like my shiny new 3D Stan avatar, I'd love to be able to upload a picture of my choosing. (On other boards, it's usually just me. Not too creative, really.)

Of course, I can understand the security concerns & all the extra work involved in policing what kinds of images get uploaded... So I understand if you choose not to go for it. :)

I guess by "security" I was thinking mostly in terms of the policing... making sure people don't upload avatars that would be inappropriate for a publicly available forum... If there are true security concerns, I don't know enough about php, phpBB, or their vulnerabilities to know what those concerns would be...

Did you ever go to the MBS forums as I suggested to see how a very popular forum is run? I never heard back from you on the Times forum.

I like your avatar. High Quality. Nudity is natural. All women have boobs. Feed me mommy.

Neo - I like the old one :wink:

But, since this is a forum where youngsters can get in, I appreciate the fact that you changed it.
