    Hello everyone. I'm new here. It's so great to meet all of you. :D

    I love this forum and have spent the last few hours reading everything
    I can get my mouse on.

    I was just wondering why we dont have avatars here. I've posted at the
    HGTV message board so if you frequent there you may have seen me.

    My avatar is this one. [​IMG]

    Welcome to the board. We are MUCH more entertaining than HGTV! Or any TV for that matter.

    My understanding of the reason for no avatars is that many posters here have slow connections and the avatars make it harder for them to participate. And also, it eats up bandwidth and this is a very active board.

    I wasn't aware of an HGTV board, I need to check it out.

    Personally, I don't like avatars. Annoying in my opinion. As to why they don't allow them here...not sure. The dial up folks (and those of us that find them annoying) would have the option to not display them from our user cp.
