    You must keep the avatar on a server somewhere, and link to it from here.
    You can send the avatar to me if you'd like, I can host it for you.
    My mail-adress is in the profile . . .

    PS: I refuse to host image-sig's, only avatars!

      I've never used a forum which didn't allow it. I always thought they looked nice.

            You appear to be accusing the moderators of trying to 'hack' your site. I'm ninety percent certain that the password you gave to use on this board is stored in an encrypted state, and is not available to the moderators. That's the way most forums software works.

              That's right, Percolator. We can't view passwords, only reset them to something new, ask any phpbb admin.

                Give Dalai a gold star. I also run some forums using phpBB and yes, the only thing I can do is reset the password if needed.

                        All that I'm saying, is that passwords etc. in a database isn't secure, even though they are encrypted. There's lots of tools to crack an encrypted password.

                              there's far to much homoerotic nudging between modetwo and omega going on.
                              I'm not so bad... Once you get to know me.
