The removal of the ability for users to have avatars hosted offsite is a decision which I am strongly against. Hosting images offsite allows board admins to ration the amount of space they have on a particular server more effectively. For example I allow people on one of the sites I manage to post attachments to their posts. At the same time I also only allow them to link their avatars from an external source (like imageshack or the like). This allows me to ensure that the only space being used on the server is for attachments (since some of them can be up to 2-3 MB in size).
The removal of this ability leaves me with the choice of either forcing my members to use an external service (gravatar) or to change my policies on upload limits for attachments etc.
Who use gravatar anyway. I like my own avatar and the animation ones are taking out, what?!
I use gravatar as I post on some sites that that is all they use for avatars.
