Default Use own hosted image for header/bg

I gave this some thought today, and now I'm going to throw it out to the FFR public to get an opinion. I think that instead of forcing us to upload the header/bg to FFR's server with a size cap, we should also be able to specify an off-site URL.

I don't know how it would work out, which is why it's just a suggestion.

Which would then also have to check the file to make sure it was under the size cap? Far easier to just have the cap on uploads.

I think it was meant as instead of linking to profiles, could the url be set to other sites, so that the graphics and whatnot could go by those guidelines, which if it weren't linked to the FFR server or whatever, might be larger or easier to work with.

I don't like the size cap on the backgrounds, it limits my options for epic backgrounds... I had more in my current one, but I had to cut stuff out to reduce the size...........

I talked to an admin about this and he sites security as a big reason for not allowing outside URLs. For example, someone could have the "image" point to a script that sets a cookie on the user's computer. It's just safer for FFR and everyone on it to have the site have full control over what is shown.
