LOL! Hey! I resemble that remark... err, I mean... I resent that remark.

We can't fix it right now because Marc is in his cage and we lost the key. We have to have a locksmith come over on Monday to let him out. Anyway, I'm sure when he gets back he'll take care of it.

In the mean time, I think we need to turn up the heat under chodder and melt his cheese a bit. Such a brat.

I believe that the reason that you can't view the avatars throughout the posts is that we're trying to keep this site more professional looking. I know that Marc and Sean are working on a lot of things.

I have been asking non golds if they can see the avatars and it seems that it's almost a 50/50 deal. Half can see them and half can not see them.

When I signed up Sandy at Inreview, she could see the avatars. I sent her a private message and she recieved no email to say it was there.

So, I went to her options page and changed it to where she would get an email if a Private message was sent. After that, she could not longer see the Avatars.

I changed it back to "don't get the email for PM's", but she could still not see the Avatars. So, Maybe it was just the act of changing something in the options section, that activated sometime and shut the avatars off for her.

Does Sandy's ID get a prompt when she has a new PM ? Try that and come back with a sitrep on the avatar, sir !

Want to lobby for a Gold Family Plan, whidden ?

No dresses for the Lawdog! It would ruin my toughguy image.....

A gold member family plan is an excellent idea! 3 dollars a month for the first family member, 1 dollar a month for the spouse. I could do that.

Actually, if Sandy winds up liking Inreview a lot, we will pay the 3 bucks a month for her as well, so she can see the Avatars.

It hard to miss 3 dollars a month.

I would like to find out eventually whether non-golds are supposed to be seeing them or not.

Okay - I'll clear things up. At one poiint we discussed allowing only Gold Members to view/have Avatars. While we never officially initiated that - a bug allowed it to happen - oh, 50% of the time.

I've fixed the bug and as a result, here is what you must do if you cannot see avatars:

MY INREVIEW > OPTIONS > Save Your Options (even though you have changed nothing)

That should get avatars back for those who wish to view them. Anyone else who already sees them can ignore this.

Hey Marc, it worked for me too. But I have a request. I am comfortable with them now, since I have a T3 and the images don't take time to load. What if I move to a 56.6 kbps modem and I don't want to see them anymore to have faster download of the page? Can you devise an option so that we can turn them off too? Thanks.

Thanks, whidden / adityamahesh. I'm grateful for your approval and appreciation, it's what personally motivates me to keep going and generating new ideas.

The concept of brown nosing is hereby null and void here. Members or staff - we're all just people trying to make something we mutually enjoy a better place. Expressing support of anyone's work is better said than not. Thanks again.

Now that brown nosing has been nulled, does that mean I can keep applying to be a mod? Kidding, I don't have the time to be a mod even if you made me one.

I was thinking... why not have it that if you are already a gold member then all you have to do is pay another dollar a month and that will allow you to have an animated avatar. So people will be like oh I want an animated avatar so then they go gold and then pay the extra dollar just to get an animated avatar. I have no idea as to how much server animated avatars use up so I don?t know if it could handle it. Plus you just got that upgrade so maybe it could? eh, just a thought. You?re not making much money out of the deal but at least it?s something.

Oh did I mention staff should be able to have animated avatars? People will think how cool it must be to have one and want to upgrade

As is it... I don't think that people should be allowed to have the animated smilies in their signatures.
Marc... can you code that, please?
