Unfortunately, because of bandwidth restrictions we've had to take the avatar gallery offline.  Although our monthly limit is 30 GB - more than enough for the forum and site, the Avatar Gallery has already sucked up a whopping 22 GB of transfer this month.

So, until we can find an alternative solution, or until we can pay for the extra bandwidth - the gallery is offline.  We'll let you know when it's back up.

It was fun to have it. An idea for bandwith reduction: what if one would limit the avatar size say to 20 KB (or a lower value maybe 10 KB). How much bandwith would that spare? Bigger avatars make anyway no sense... And delete all avatars from the gallery with are bigger than this limit.

I'd rather not remove all the big avatars - as some were really interesting.

Besides, I've found an alternative host - and I'm hoping to get that online in a few days :) Thanks for all the support!
