I've discovered why are avatars are gone, they've been impounded till we renew our memberships, it doesn't matter when you join, all memberships lapse on the 29th of January. This is to coincide with the removal of Blagojevich (wow I spelled it right) from office.

Anyways you can paypal me the money and I'll make sure all of your memberships are restored. It's like $99.95.
