    The main reason I suggested it in the first place is that it allows some explanation of avatars. Quite often the only way of finding out what an avatar represents is doing right-click, save as and hope the file name gives it away.

    Plus, the option of a bit of comedy gold increases.

    I realise that there would probably be a little bit of extra moderation involved, but I'm pretty sure that these can be disallowed in the Mod CP (Admin CP?) in the same way that a signature can.

    So basically Sledger wouldn't get one of those either then?

    I am HUGELY in favour of this as my avatar tends to be owned by others for about three-quarters of the year, don't want n00bs thinking I am Irish or anything

    what about this new arcade winner thing .is it where captions will come ...???

    and if your winner in multiples arcade games it keeps running around ...don't look good though IMO (Eg: Cevno,lKKi)

    and is it taking extra space in the page ???
