This may have already been suggested, but maybe allow people to have a small icon under there name for the forums. I've seen it at alot of other forums, and it's kinda fun to put a picture underneath your name. Or maybe for default, put a flag of their nation underneath their names. Could be interesting to learn all the different flags of different countries. Just a thought.

I rather like the flag idea... (I'm always looking up the flags for other countries.)

hmmm flags would be good, I think icons (avatars) would be better. If we had to choose one.

I personally always disable avatars on forums that have them. I think they add too much clutter and detract from the content of the messages, which after all is what I'm really interested in.
It gets particularly bad when people start using animated avatars.

You just want a ninja face under your name...

awwwww... I wanted to put an animated avatar... It is a chance for people to show their creative side, show some personality and colour!

I also disable them straight away, partly because they get on my nerves very quickly (the same thing over, and over again), and partly because i tend to access from obscure places using sloooow dialups, so it trebles the time taken to get to what i want.

Small stationary flags, or even small pinpoint maps of where people are would be an idea, but i`m just as happy without

fair enough, but each browser out there has the option to disable 'linked' images. In other words, images not on the same server as the website. This helps a lot when browsing on a slow connection.

If we had a polling system we could vote on avatars!

I vote that everyone give me a portion of their bandwidth so I can have highspeed internet too. (That's what I vote for!!!)

Also, what about signatures on posts? I like that, its like the motto thing on the profile, just it automatically tags it to your posts if you want it to....?
