Only Scott can add patches. Only Scott and Ward can turn the avatar access on. So, no, we didn't get owned at all.

Why does a user named GBPackers have a Giants sig, and not only a giants sig but a Jim Finn sig of all people.

I will show Scott the off-site avatar hack. If for some reason it falls through, I will make an announcement letting everyone know.

I'm completely and totally unfamiliar with the price of webhosting, but how much more money would Scott have to pay for users to be able to have avatars? If it's more than a couple of dollars a month then I wouldn't expect it to be done. But if it's relatively cheap, there is no reason not to give the people what they want. After all, if those people who want a cute little image next to their name didn't come to this site, Scott would be making a lot LESS money.

I could honestly care less one way or another. Just throwing it out there.

the bandwidth costs are usually more scalable, but on a dedicated server, that shouldn't necessarily be the issue.
The storage cost of having avatars would be negligible. Storage space is extremely cheap when it comes to webhosting, and images hardly take up any space.

As for the cost of bandwidth, I doubt it would make much of a difference. I would personally get rid of images in signatures and just go with avatars.
