Just wondering guys. Is it possible to allow .swf files for avatars?
I love playing with flash and feel i could do loads with a flash avatar.

Thanks all.
Yeah sure it is. But do you want to? Flash is certainly going to be more of a problem to control. Example is someone can place a video game as their avatar. They can create something that's an ad. They can make it so a popup occurs. Flash is too powerful to allow members to insert them into your site in this way. That's why you don't see anyone else do that.
I see your point. What about user based or group based permission to do so?
Sure you can do that but it would then require a plugin.
Ok thanks i might ask around the traps and see if anyone wants to create it.
