how does our avatar show our contribution level? nobody even knows when they change. post count is what really shows contribution level.
are you guys part of any other forums? every other forum i go on allows custom avatars.
i really think we should be allowed custom avatars. because then you start to associate people with their avatar and its more like a face, its easier to identify people individuallyBuddhaG wrote:How about this?
After a certain post count, upon which you have established yourself as a deadicated member, you would be allowed to put up an avatar of your choice.
Personally, I like my current avatar and there are some really fucking cool ones that have been picked by the admins that I would like to have.
Also, I like the current system because it shows seniority and that is important here. You need to know which guys have been around because we have to respect the vibe previously established before we (newer members) joined.
So, I do like the system but think that after a certain period we should have the privilege of customizing our avatars.
Okay thats my 2 rubles.
The avatars change DEPENDING on your post count. I haven't been through all that many, but posts 1-5 I had the black "RUKIND" guitar pick avatar. Then 6-10 is the skeleton "RUKIND" avatar. Then it was "Wall of Sound", than "Vince", and now, mine is "Tiger". I believe that at 75 posts, mine will change to "TC" and then to "Rosebud" when I get to 100. From looking at other poeple's, this seems to be 100% consistent, so your avatar does reflect your contribution level IMO>

I don't think it is a big deal, and kind of like the "rank" system that is going here. That, and if you want your own picture on your posts, it would appear that several posters have them in their signature, so you have the option to customize with a photo. I don't think I understand what you feel is missing here.
