Hey, guys,

I just noticed that some user avatars can no longer be seen. Why is that?

a lot of people hosted their avatars on photobucket, which abruptly cut off hotlinking unless you pay some ridiculous sum

@celebi: But the links to my Photobucket uploads work fine. Does one have to make a new account to have their avatars be seen?
