I suggest you enable avatars in the config settings of the forum - that way individuals can add some uniqueness to their posts -- like this

Happydog - Avatars jsut kill the performance of a website. On a site thats dedicated to a particular subject where the majority of readers are office based and on a broadband connection they are fine but 5thwheelforums has an equal share of readers that are mobile and do not have access to a fast connection.

Thanks for the repy - guess I'm spoiled by a 6MB download speed - it's been quite awhile since I've done dial up.

I'm curious as to the connectivity of the forum members -- I notice many parks are offering wi-fi connection via wi-lan on premise. It seems to becoming a sought after amenity - for me (a newbie) my plan was to utilize one of the Verizon data cards which offer somewhere between 400-700 kbs connectivity - still better than dial up.

I'm a full-timer and unfortunately the CG wi-fi isn't the norm yet (we don't stay at the fancy resorts). I use the Cingular air card but even that isn't very fast when on the fringes of service (2-3 bars). Though I enjoy avatars and personal pics they do clutter up the bandwidth. :(

I don't have them enabled due to performance issues for those on dial up accounts - sorry.
