There seem to be a few members who have head their avatars become huge images that I assume are related to the host site they used. When I clicked to open a page that a huge avatar poster posted on I got this message along with a request to fill in a username and password:

It looks like there is some problem with images hosted on TinyPic. The images have been changed to different larger images. I've found reports on the web of Tinypic allowing old images to expire and reusing the URLs. If you see anyone who is using TinyPic let them know they should remove their avatars/sigs and use a different image host.

I've disabled all sigs/avatars for now. There were too many members using Tinypic to host their images and they were causing problems by stretching the pages on the forum.

I've turned back on sigs and avatars. If you see someone with a tinypic sig/avatar please post their username here and I will remove it.

If you need a new site to host your images on, I would recommend http://imgur.com/

jagman777's avatar. He had the Tebow avatar that was popular on the forum a few years ago. I wonder if everyone else who still has that avatar now has the large flip-flops that jagman is rocking.

If their sig/avatar is on tinypic, but is still normal. Just send them a PM and tell them they should changes image hosts. You can point them to this topic for more info.

Only post usernames of members who's sig/avatar were changed on tinypic, so that I can remove those and keep them from causing the pages to stretch.

Thanks for the help.
