I've made some updates to optimize avatar images which should help page load times in the future.
Also, the timer to bump your player or team post has become a bit more strict. In the past we've had the timer, but didn't actually enforce the time between bumps since there weren't enough users to really bury new posts. The new rule is 2 days between bumps. This helps give everyone a fair chance to be on the first page and not to get buried too quickly.
