I just tried it for curiosity's sake, and doing so produced nothing but the fabled Little Red X:
I'm considering switching layouts just to be a rebel, and I'm getting the same problem. So now that a popular member with influence has this problem hows bout we fix it.
Now that I'm using Firefox, I can see the same problem Turtlekid has.


Or are you trying to say that the default theme is better?  To which I reply: dude, not everyone has the same taste in color schemes and avatars.

To be specific, this is, or was, the "change theme" page. Seeing as it doesn't work in Firefox or IE, it's not a browser-based problem.

I'm biased towards the current default theme to the point of trying to make other websites look similar, but I would not object to small images below forum members names.  It's the huge blinking GIF signatures that annoy me to the point of ignoring the forums that use them.

I actually really hate the aforementioned GIF signatures as well; give me a witty quote over the flashy animations anyway.  But that's a moot issue, since images still aren't allowed in signatures with the better-lit theme.  

I do, however, like seeing avatars under the names of posters.  For one thing, it helps to differentiate between people with similar usernames  (<+Man-Frog> the worst part is that I keep getting Tv_Themes and Trainman confused); for another, and I believe this point has already been touched on in this thread, avatars can add personality to the user.  Without avatars, all you've got in the way of individuality are the custom titles, which, while a cool feature, are involuntary (and thus possibly not as reflective of the User's actual personality).

That had better be your real avatar in three seconds, because that's awesome.

I thought you'd run that through an actual bling-gif site and smiled until I realized that your entire sense of humor consists of stealing stuff from Encyclopedia Dramatica.

That's only half. The other half is images from 4chanarchive.org.

Let's just admit it: the change layout page is never going to be fixed. Unless someone gets MacGyver, MacGruber, McGarnicle, and The Guyver on the case.
