Avatars?
Posted by Alex on Saturday, November 08, 2003 10:27 AM
OK, is there a way to to upload an avatar, something like Andy has under his name? Can't find how to do that - or is it that Picture URL field in User Profile?

Thanks!

The Picture URL is for the Profile Page. The Profile Page is the page you go to when you click on a member's name or on the "Profile" Icon.

We currently don't have any avatars for the Scale Auto site. I don't know if it's been discussed or not. The picture Andy has under his name is actually not an avatar, but something unique we do for the editorial staff members to indicate who they are.

On another forum we have running, it was extremely helpful because we had people visiting who didn't know who some of the staff members were. When that person posted, they were "questioned" as to the validity of the information they were posting.

Avatar is a small picture that identifies a user in the forum.
David - is there something like that planned for this forum? I think this is a good idea.

That decision is up to Jim and Andy. If they decision is to have avatars on the site, I have a bunch of generic avatars. However, I personally would like to see avatars which are relevant to the hobby vs. avatars which are from video games (non-racing games), cartoons, anime, Pokemon, etc. While it's easy for me to say that, I don't have very many which meet that criteria at the moment.

It would be cool if there was a gallery of boxart to choose from as avatars!

I also think avatars would be a great addition to the site. And I think they should be realative to the site. Cool

I agree with grouchy and krabby,
but if we must have them, they
should be open to choice,
ie: anything you can find or
create but limited in size, to like
that of a thumbnail sized photo....
what'cha think Question
