Avatars

Post by Brian Johnston » 07 Apr 2009, 15:22

I think the links to existing avatars got broken when the site was transferred to a different server. I re-uploaded mine. If you don't see a picture in the square for your avatar, you probably need to do the same.

Let's see if mine worked.

I tread lightly here, but perhaps it would be better to turn off avatars. From my experience at the NOM boards, I know they can sometimes get hard to "moderate". It might be best to start right off without them.

I think the visual images helps connect people and personalities in this anonymous online world. Don't worry too much about moderation on avatar images. We have no problem policing things that are not appropriate.

Yeah, if Hawkgrrrl's avatar cleavage was a bit more pronounced . . . :shock:

Hey, if you've got it, flaunt it. If you don't, find an avatar that does!

Pray that I keep my avatar the way it is?
