I didn't expect you guys to go as far as protecting avatar image from being saved

extremely easy to circumvent which of course I won't mention how

but still, not bad ATS, kudos

every now and then I kick myself for not starting ATS myself, ahhh....lost youth, better luck next time

Use chrome mate, updates every week or so automatically. Unless you have privacy issues, google isn't to be trusted lol.

You can copy an avatar but you can't copy a background picture
When we use a background, we must use a clear GIF as an avatar so the entire background shows. That clear GIF is what you copy in that case.

If you come to the Avatar Creations thread, you'll find some wonderful avatars (some claimed & some not) you can copy. The wonderful artists there will help you find one for your very own if you'll but ask.

Another thing, that works for firefox at least. Click on the lower righthand corner of the larger avatars that are backround images, then choose "view backround image" to bypas the clear GIF or PNG spacer.

It depends on WHERE you right click on the avatar.

Avatars have two overlapping sections equating to 3 areas...

Why in the world would anyone still be telling people to use Google Chrome? If you must use Chrome, I suggest using it's fork by SRWare called "Iron". It's built around privacy.

Now, on topic: I haven't noticed the new avatar thing. (Mainly because I never tried to save anyone's avatar.) I tried now in Firefox on Mac by right clicking and view image. I got up a gray image.

I tend to make my own avatars, however for those not interested in spending the time to do so, LadyJae posted a link to ATS's wonderful avatar thread.

Haven't heard of "Iron"...

Is it safer or better than IE?


The latest NSS Labs report is in, and the findings show that Internet Explorer completely dominates all other browsers when it comes to preventing socially engineered malware. For those that aren’t aware, socially engineered malware is a form of malicious software that attempts to trick users into installing it, and thanks to Internet Explorer 9’s SmartScreen URL filtering the browser prevents 92% of it; and up to 100% when you include Application Reputation to filer untrustworthy executables.

IE9 decimates competition at malware prevention

Internet Explorer leads the way in guarding against social engineering attacks. The clear winner is Microsoft's Internet Explorer which successfully blocked 99.9 percent of the malware included in the test. Both it and Chrome -- which blocked 70.7 percent -- use a combination of URL filtering and application reputation technology to provide content agnostic malware protection (CAMP).

Comparative analysis of browser security - Webroot Community

Internet Explorer blocked 99.9% of the SEM that was used in this test. Internet Explorer provides SEM protection by using a combination of SmartScreen URL filtering and App Rep, a technology that requires no knowledge of whether an application is harmful or benign. Chrome, which placed third...

The background is not the avatar. I bet you are right clicking in the middle of the larger avatars, and saving nothing but a clear .gif image....right?

Now, take your cursor and in the very bottom right corner of the longer avatars, right click and select "view background image" (if you have firefox). This will diplay the background all by itself.

Easy peasy.

Considering it's built on privacy from ground up using Chrome, I'd say yes. I'm not a user myself despite having toyed with it previously on a couple of occasions. I suggest searching the web for some user reviews and more information. Also check out the Wiki link.
