Make Avatars Mandatory

Postby DoomYoshi on Thu Nov 09, 2017 2:44 pm

Concise description:
  • Every user needs an avatar
  • Those who abuse avatar privileges or are guested get a shame-a-tar
  • There will be stock avatars for people to choose from

Specifics/Details:
  • Basically, people can no longer long in or take turns until they choose an avatar
  • The stock avatars can be one of five, or they can be randomly generated for each new user

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • community is everything on this site, as the community dies, the site dies
  • this will be something that helps everyone in every way

No.

yes - but they should be so horrid that it would force people to choose something for themselves say, a bag of dicks, for example. 9/10 on this one, DY... =D>

Horrible Idea.

DoomYoshi wrote:community is everything on this site, as the community dies, the site dies

This idea does not improve the community and it serves to detract from it. Certain users might like every user, but forcing every user to choose an avatar isn't community building.

So how does it detract? Name one benefit that avatar-less users provide to the community. All they are doing is showing that they don't care.

Don't get me wrong, I love the idea of every player enriching the site with beautiful and creative avatar images... but forcing red star dullards to pick banal ready-made pictures off a list is not the answer.

Then scrap the default avatars. Have one default avatar that says "I hate society" or "Hilary For President" or something equally revolting.
