Just for reference, if you put command (apple) shift and "3" at the same time you get a mac screenshot, :roll:

Why not? Heh. (realizing this is an old thread and was old when I got here)

Having recently done work with images and databases, it's not that hard. You only store each avatar once, and then you have a field for each post that links to the avatar used to make that post.

The only difficulty is when avatars are hosted off-site. In that case you make it an option for users to disable this feature.

Clear now?

BTW, I liked how I could host my own CGI avatar, even though it wasted my CPU time with nearly 1.3 million square roots per request. :)
