Avatars - The Super Duper Serious Thread

Im going to take the thread here:
http://forums.toucharcade.com/showth...rofile+picture

And make it a little more organized, sorry bout that James (superbad).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We all know that TA has an awesome forum. We all hang out and love the forum for how addicting and easy it is to talk about our favorite thing, the iDevice. We have an awesome selection of boards, cool people, and just all around nice set up.

ONE major thing is missing.

I love the fact that our accounts all have profiles. Makes TA forums be a sort of Facebook/Myspace for iDevice Gamers.

The Profile Pages are really nice, well organized and just look cool and fun to look at. They are welcoming, if you will.

The ONE thing missing is Avatars. I hate have to look at my nice profile look to the right to look at my friends or somebody elses friends and just seeing a Box with a giant "?" inside of it. It bothers me because it hit my feeling of cleanliness in the profile pages. It just makes it feel like somethings missing and the page is incomplete.

There are two solutions to this problem.

1. Just activate avatars and let the site be complete.

2. Add a premium account method. Maybe like $5/year that gives us premium status, avatars, and maybe a few other ups. Would bring more money to the site than its already making and, would give ur avvys!!!

So now, Please, give us avatars one way or another.

Phil.

And the thread just went downhill.

But really, I do like the idea of avatars, but I also love the clean look of the forums without them, I'd tend to vote no for Avatars, or at least have the option to disable seeing them.

But I do think the same way as you. Avatars would be nice, but I want an option to disable seeing them.

It can be another image, not a real pic of yours.

A previous thread sort of explained the reason why no avatars are allowed...

The gist is two fold: extra memory on the servers and additional moderation on avatars.
