  • Why were avatars disabled?

    I was just trying to update my profile and I could not find where I could upload an avatar. So I did a search and discovered that avatars were disabled way back in 2007. I'm curious why that was done, not that it matters much. Every other board that I know of has them. I find them entertaining.

    I'd also like to suggest that a new section be provided that deals with the board itself. Most board have them. That's where I would have posted this thread.

    We try to keep the software lean and focused on a searchable, public posting of questions and answers. Any social features we can disable are generally disabled, as at best they can be entertaining, but at worst they lead to new vectors for spam and disruptive behavior and a drain on resources for monitoring them.
