Pat, would you consider making the avatar size 60k instead of 6? According to my calculations that = about 9 seconds on dial up. If possible that would be great, beacause I want to put the pic thats in my signature in my avatar spot.

Thanks,
Richard

we have that at our dallaswakeboarding site and I think it's annoying. It makes the left cell of the table huge which squishes the body of the message

as much as i'd like to use a sick-ass avant avatar, no, big avatars are annoying as hell.

it would be cool if everyone's avatars were gonna be cool, but you know there are gonna be a few people (read: 80% of the people) who have something really lame on there.
