Time to ditch avatars?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

How much is it costing in bits/month to download the same pictures over and over again.

Next to nothing? Depends, how do you browse the forum?

Where are all the early CEO posters who absolutely insisted on the right to have and see naked tits and ass avatars? They said they left K440 specifically due to lack of naked avatar freedom and god-dammit CEO better allow jiggly tits and ass avatars.

I keep mine because I use them as a visual cue when scrolling fast to ID who made what post (if you don't have one it takes me longer to put a tone and name with the post) and I want to make it easier for myself and others.

They can be witty/etc... and I do change it sometimes... but overall I try to stay pretty consistent so without having to find the text and read it for a username it's instantly recognisable as to who made what post.

I tried to bring it in once, too big, fail, gave up.

I didn't have the guts to request a Mod help because everything was busy at first.

So when there's time, some helpful soul might help me out.
