Is it possible to suppress the appearance of a particular member's avatar? There is a funny one that I also find mildly disgusting, and having gotten the humor and the joke, would just as soon not look at it again. But I don't want to suppress seeing other people's avatars!

Also, I don't want to actively complain (or identify which one this is) because I know humor varies and don't want to impose on others.

I've been rumbled!  Wink

More helpfully - would an ad-blocking plugin or greasemonkey script for your browser not do the job here?

Holy smokes. Roll Eyes I didn't even use the infamous Riven trick, and folks are taking this personally. Wink

BTW, I bought my wife a "got corn?" cow mug (Nate's avatar) and she loves it!

Firefox... right click on the image -> view image info -> [x] block images from www.example.com (affects the whole domain, mind you)

As a user style:

You should mail the user a note that you dont like to look at his avatar. I would not want to annoy people with my avatar (and if he wants to annoy people, you will enlighten his day with your mail Wink). btw is this eye annoying Cheesy ?

Phil, I am on my phone right now but as soon as I get to my pc I 'll change it.
(I cannot think of other avatar that fits this description better than mine, and even if its another one I'd do it for nate)

And just in case it s not clear, the kid in the pic is me, not just a random kid

Aww, I didn't mean you had to change it just for me teletubo. It's just quite odd, makes me wonder about your sense of humor. Wink It isn't really offensive, so please don't take it down just for me.

Done.
I'm not really bothered for people disliking my avatar, I must acknowledge it was a little bit of bad taste. I apologize for that phil.

(And if my new avatar bothers someone, please feel free to tell)

I think I was 3 or 4.

And the troll was my mom for shooting this photo Sad

I didn't change it only because of Nate or phil, I was actually a little bit tired of that avatar.

Suddenly I feel very offended by your current picture, teletubo. Please switch back to the old one.

I like theagentd's avatar since its probably the best frame of bad apple
however its a very big image getting scaled down here which unfortunately makes it very aliased

LOL! OMG, 17 more posts, some pretty outrageous!

I'm moving on to other threads. Have fun, y'all.

(I have to admit, I'm curious, and somewhat worried, about what you will come up with next, teletubo.)

 Cool

What?! That you'd even think I'd have an aliased signature is WRONG! You clearly haven't seen my earlier graphics related threads. xD And why would downsampling produce aliasing in the first place? Are you saying that both supersampling and MSAA are fake?

But anyway: Bad Apple!!! Yay! Awesome song is awesome!
