You know.. those little images that people can have below their names. Is Javaranch going to allow that? I'd sure like to have a pic of my pickup truck with the confederate flag and a crate of budweiser..

seconded If you like --- you can put a nice picture of your confederate flag / budewiser on your profile so it can be seen in all red-necky glory by anyone who checks out your profile. as for the "why? -- avatars get out of hand. They certaintly wouldn't lend to the nice, peaceful, relaxed, professional-ish image we have now. [ November 26, 2003: Message edited by: Jessica Sant ]
We've been working on moving JavaRanch to servlet-based software. At least one of the options supports avatars, and we had it turned on for a while in our test installation. By an overwhelming majority, the JavaRanch staff felt that it should be turned off. They take up too much space, are distracting, and as Jess says, they're less professional lookin' than the Moose.
