Avatars on user pages? (self.notabug)

is this possible? desirable?
Better support for participating without it may come in the future.

Right now go1dfish is avoiding image hosting like the plague, because of the cp hosting potential. It's also much heavier on the network in comparison to text.

i never said hosting images. Avatars can be hotlinked
then you can set up an ip harvester
so? if you have any expectations of privacy on the internet you are an idiot
go1dfish could literally be harvesting everyone's IP and you wouldn't know

I could, but I’d have to pay Cloudflare for that or shunt people off to a different domain on Cloudflare.
As it is, I don’t see real ips.
There's plenty of existing image hosts, so that "feature" isn't really needed anyway. This is classic reddit and I love it.
Just realized I haven't responded to this yet. As other commenters have mentioned I want to avoid image hosting, and I also agree with the other guy that classic reddit is a good thing.
But what I do think would be cool would be giving users space like control of their profile or just the ability to style it, accompanied with user settings to disable this and define allowable external image hosts to avoid the ip harvesting concern.
as i said in a diff thread on this topic (im op) i meant not image hosting, but hotlinking

You’d be able to do this with the style sheet approach and it would be a more general solution.
I’ve always thought stylable user profile pages on Reddit would be cool as long as they can be easily disabled.
No. Please no.
