I'm sure someone will reply telling me to disable them, but I'm paying for a subscription to use my own, so I really don't feel that that's a viable solution.

Just wanted to point this out.
You think thats bad. No matter how hard I look at my posts an avatar never appears.

The only thing I'm throwing a fit over is......the vague thread title. Avatars are silly anyway. Just turn them off.

Re: I'm sure people will throw a fit...

From reading the comments...did everyone change their avatars to mine? If so, that's amazing.

Funny that hardly anyone has Avatars anymore.

No, it had nothing to do with you, at least at the beginning. We just picked one avatar to all change to, to confuse the non-Premium people.

It wasn't aimed at any single person, just a general thing.

I think it's funnier that people were actually willing to pay for the privilege at one point.

I don't think many of us paid/pay specifically for the avatars. The other benefits are just as worthless as avatars, but they're worth $5 a year imho.

The extra $5 I pay because I'm too lazy to cancel; and write it off as a tip for the enjoyment I get out of the site.

I didn't pay for the Avatars I just wanted to give back to a site I spend much time on. But it felt the site didn't really wanna give me anything back for my loyalty.

No, I mean after the fact...it looks like once I posted that, everyone changed to my avatar.

I've won 2 DVDs and a BD set just in the last few months from contests open only to premium members. The avatar is just a bonus.

I can't remember for sure what a number of us did. It was either we changed our avatars to El Scorcho's who was briefly suspended during the April Fool's ruckus or we changed it to a Bulls suck avatar because I think you had a Bulls avatar at the time.

As the one who coordinated the prank, I was actually grateful that you took it to a whole new level just as the impact was starting to fizzle out. As a result your reaction made the whole thing epic!

A lot of us did switch to your Chicago Bulls avatar and there was a hybrid version that gcribbs kept as his avatar for about 2 years.

The only thing I really regret about that day was that El Scorcho posted a remark that was out of line and got suspended for it.

As for the benefits of being a premium member, I can justify it simply by the fact that I've won nearly $200 worth of DVDs, Blu-rays and a few other cool things liike a book and a soundtrack LP on red vinyl.

We did all of those things although not necessarily as a group. There was also the hybrid Tarantino & Bulls avatar that was pretty cool.

I remember the Tarantino one and it confused the hell out of me. Funny all the same though.
