Guys, I have removed HTML support from the chat header pane... which effectively kills chat banners. I do have my reasons.
#1, while I know that some of you absolutely loved the chat banner idea, I've also heard from quite a few who did not. The idea of that header pane is to allow you to quickly see who is in chat, and if you have to scroll down through several banners, that purpose is quickly defeated.
#2, allowing HTML code here is a big security hole. Honestly, it's a hole in the forums, as well - I'll be working to close that, as well. We'll continue to allow formatting code, as well as images in the forums, but I need to remove scripts and such.
On the positive side, I will probably add in signature support to the site soon, so your banners will not be for naught - you can put them there. I just don't have the time to code this right now.
Thanks, and I apologize for those I have offended by this.
