What was the reasoning of going to this format? Just wondering.
I liked the old format better because i'm lazy and i'm not going to do all that shite just to upload a picture.
It prevents malware, spam pop ups and hopefully a big virus. Chicken probably realized that hosting Avi's and sigs on this site from some different sites that were shady at best is just asking for trouble. There were already numerous Avi's and sigs inducing malware. That's likely what prompted this security measure. I would do the same thing too if I were chicken. He went to reputable and trusted sites like photobucket, and imgur.
With this site getting bigger and getting more and more members in the process, it was only a matter of time before someone with an Avi or sig that is hosted on a virus ridden site would've totally screwed up TigerDroppings.
ETA: This format is actually pretty easy when you get the hang of it. It's not a difficult concept to grasp.
