Photographic Avatars

I like the way this forum is set up, so that you can only make a photographic avatar of yourself.

This encourages people to put their photos on their posts.

The cartoon avatars that many forums have just discourage people from showing us what they look like.

It's okay for people not to show their photographs, but I don't think we should be discouraging them from doing so.

Hello...

Welcome to the site.

Thanks for the note. The idea with the use is two fold. One, it helps to create a better vision of a community and two, it helps to keep the site looking more professional.

Please note however, I do not see anything wrong with people also expressing themselves with a cartoon or a hobby they may enjoy. However, it is just something that I personally feel also can hinder the appeal of a site when not kept in check. I like the idea of the feeling of knowing someone. A face with the name.

Again, welcome.
