Question - How do turn off avatars?

I was told that you can turn this off for free? How do you do it? Now that a lot more people with avatars, it's getting annoying... Prior to that, i only remember three avatars, X's ant, L&O's weirdo Mii and the Anchorman... And now, i can't get the Zombie's image out of my head. If i don't do this, tons of kitten avatars gonna flood the site, help me!

Go to the User CP on the top left bar and it will be under Edit Options.

Yes. I think people are still able to see the shiny icons beside our usernames.

I can sense your superiority, even without the avatar.


BTW, what do you have against pilots?
