post #8251 of 14830
Can I just say that I hate the generic avatars? It used to be that people either had no avatar - in which case you had to read their user name - or a personal one, that helped you quickly identify the author of a post.

As it is now, you may think you know who posted something, only to have it contradict what that person usually would say, forcing you to back track only to see it was somebody else with the same avatar. Bloody annoying.

I may of course very well be the only one who thinks this, so feel free to ignore...

I agree about the avatars.

Once I saw a page with 5 replies in a row with the same generic avatar. Was hysterical.

Hysterical good, or hysterical, bad? Anyway, it's an ongoing discussion, but I do agree that people should be able to choose "nothing". Helps render times too. I didn't have an avatar for 9+ years, and never really felt the need for them, nor even really register them most of the time. However, they seem to mean a great deal to a lot of people, so, we represent your interests.

Its not all or nothing Fok. Its, if you don't want a picture of your own, you have nothing. Some of us want lovely self portraits. Take myself and Tagut for instance.

This will only help a little with the problem, though.

As long as generic avatars are available, many of the 100.000 users will have identical ones - leading to the current situation where they subtract from the forum experience rather than add to it.

I'm aware that many forums provide generic avatars to choose from, but that doesn't make it a good idea. The thing is, that a graphic presentation of 'who's talking' is a fast way to recognize who's who. With generic avatars it's like watching a bunch of clones talking, forcing you to check their name tag at every turn.

The generic avatars were supposed to be deleted, but I lost track of that issue and we probably just need to bring it up again to get it done. I think they are awful myself.

Neither, just lulzy. It looked like someone was talking to himself.
