lmfao no don't put the avatar in a mini-profile field, you don't need to. just basically turn off the option to upload avatars in the admin panel (should be one of the options under the individually member group settings) so you're having everyone self-host instead of being able to upload to the site itself and take up the space.
and i mean i was just thinking it'd be a touch easier to do the sites by using all a tags instead of bs since you don't have
to put in an a tag if you don't want.
also you guys should probs deal with guidelines for advertising in sigs. and sig guidelines in general lmfao
edit: ALSO HIGHLY GOING TO SUGGEST SOME ORGANIZATION TO THE AD BOARDS. i'd personally recommend adding subcategories for based on / original in the real life and then adding a few of the more popular ones as you get them for both
sections (ie, harry potter, dc / marvel, supernatural-esque sites for rl based on; small town, college, supernatural, historical for rl original; pokemon, sailor moon, panfandom for animanga based on [i'm out of touch for what's super popular there rn oops]; supernatural, superpowered, high fantasy for animanga original [again, super out of touch for what's popular here too]). just because otherwise you run the risk of sites getting more or less buried since there's no real good way to sort the ads out right if you're trying to thumb through them.
i used to be an ad mod, so i just am super fussy with advertising stuff, oops
