    In this day and age of super speedy interwebz I'm sure that no one would mind terribly if we increased the 32kb limit a tad... I'm not saying make it unlimited, or go back to linking to other sites... just a realistic increase based on how much faster our internets has become. I'll put a figure on it and say a 100kb cap, what say you 'Russ master of all we survey'?

    Yes, this is because I have an avatar that I just cannot get below 32kb no matter what I do, I have tried and I have failed, my only recourse is to change the rules.

    32kb is quite big for a 50 x 50 image. Either the animation for it is far too long or the quality is far too high.

    Post a link to the avatar in question!

    But this the challenge to your imagaination.

    You have to come up with something under 32kb.

    I spent days, nay weeks, designing my avatar. I could not think
    of anything at all until I had this sudden flash of inspiration.

    Can you guess what my avatar means?

    I have no idea where you got your avatar from or what it means

    Is it an ode to the rather deformed Christmas tree you had back in '93?

    I would REALLY love to have a way to turn off all the stupid avatar animations. I know I can keep hitting the Esc key, but really it shouldn't be necessary to have to do that every time the page is refreshed.

    I'm running Adblock Plus, but can't see any way to turn off animations in it. I don't want to turn off every animation, just avatars. Can you help?

    I assume he means blocking the image as opposed to stopping the animation.

    Right click image > Adblock Plus: Block Image

    Great! Just means if the avatar is animated, it becomes a blank square. And I can apply it to each one that annoys me individually. Many thanks for that!
