The profile picture already is small, so the problem of a picture loading up shouldn't be a issue. I've seen forums still load up properly because they have a standard to keep profile pictures within certain width/length in order for topics to load up fast, and GFAQs already has step 1 accomplished. It just would be nice to give topics a bit more personality instead of just seeing the account's username all the time, why not just go all the way you know? I think it is just slightly lame I have to click their username just to see whatever their avatar is, I think it defeats the purpose of a profile picture.

I hope it is at least considered even if my suggestion gets opposed.

And IIRC the mods repeatedly rejected that.

Honestly that is a shame, what exactly is the reason? Is it technical or is it because of the users?

Personally I like the minimalist layout the site has, and I couldn't care less about others' pics, but if people want it added I wouldn't be opposed to a toggleable option.
I'm only abrasive to morons, take that for what you will.

That would be a nice compromise.

im not sure I understand why either.

if you click the little upside down triangle next to names, it will pop up with a profile picture (if the user has one).

why not just have that as an option to show if you decide to turn it on?

GameFAQs will lost its identity without its Avatar. Like wildFIRE, its spread and consumed entire NATION. Not to mention the other ATTACK!

Just to be clear, is this a legitimate anti-sign with a joke reasoning or a joke anti-sign? I'm not sure either of these are OK, but the second one seems worse.

It doesn't matter, an anti-sign is an anti-sign
Don't try to think we can understand each other. For some reason, people think that they can do that. Remember that they can't. Never completely. Never enough.
