Greetings Selene and all,
To help those who have slower internet connections and servers, this board offers a way to remove all pictures and load the board with just text, and is simple.
Go to the "User control Panel "(upper left of the page, under the banner) then; Board Preferences, Then; Edit Display Options.
You will get this page;
Here you can select what is showing up on your computer and save lots of time browsing.
It allows you to remove avatars, signatures and all, and can be switched back if you like.
Of course sanity in posting pictures is a must, for all of us, but this can help speed things up
