Is there an easy way to disable avatars?

I use this board at work and people walk by and see 3" x 4" pictures of scantily clad women ... and I doubt they think it's a Mets board.

I'd rather not disable avatars because there are some really cool Mets theme'd ones that I thoroughly enjoy ... just wish that the board would require people to keep their avatars to baseball and/or the Mets ...

no offense to the guys with good taste in women ... just a plea from a guy who wants his cake (this board) and to be able to eat it too (see the cool Mets avatars without seeing the chicks)

Yeah, there is.

In Internet Explorer:

Tools > Internet Options > Advanced

scroll down to "Multimedia" and uncheck the box that says "Show Images".

I've mentioned this before. I usually tune out the avatars, so if I'm at work I'm completely oblivious to the fact that their might be a half naked woman on my computer while I'm reading someones post. :lol:

I thought Ed cracked down on the half-naked women avatars?

yeah, we discourage them for sure.

You could always take it upon yourself to PM the user, nicely, or a mod/admin if you see an avatar that you think is inappropriate. I don't catch them all.

I can understand the frustration...

I wish phpbb had that feature available to us...
