I'm just wondering...

Why are there no images like avatars or siggy banners?

Is there a reason, the beatiful artwork that could be has been stripped away from this wonderful site?

Images take bandwidth and that costs money. This site is mainly supported by Miz Scarlet from her own resources plus the donations that some of us make. To afford to offer a free service we must keep our costs carefully in check.

I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.

Moreover, we also have to keep our efforts organized.

Most of what would end up posted would likely not be "beautiful," would often be copyrighted to other people than the poster, would often be inappropriate for this site, and we'd end up spending a lot of time cleaning up and removing images, rather than putting our time and energy where it is supposed to go: to answering questions quickly and accurately.

(As well, this particular version of UBB does not support avatars in the first place.)
