    My only problem regarding this issue is that I tend to perceive people's personalities through their avatars, rather than through their posts. I.e. if a person has an avatar I think looks stupid, or that I don't like for no apparent reason, I will draw a parallel to the poster. Of course this changes after reading a lot of the person's posts, but I do initially judge posters by their avatars.

    Guess I'm just a shallow person.

    Ed.- Of course this works both ways so if I like the avatar... I often also like the poster.

    Then we're both shallow...
    I mean there's nothing else to go for when judging people on an Internet forum but the text and the picture, right?
    It is indeed very much connected to the person.
    Hence my suggestion that any avatar you use should be recorded and saved together with the posts you used it in and haunt you (and the rest of us) until the final hour.


    Btw, your latest avatar is cool.

    That isn't possible with this board software. It would require custom work. A LOT of custom work. The user module isn't associated with the posts directly.

    How are you supposed to tell people apart if they have different names and different avatars?

    I agree with you. IMO it would be better if the the avatar picture wasn't changed for all your previous posts when you get a new one, but it is kind of a small issue.

    However, if I had to change something about the GUI(General User Interface;) Tonuzaba) of Bullshido, it would be the dark background. Well, I have kind of grown acquaint to this site's design, and I wouldn't change it for the world now, but I remember when I first entered this site. I thought it looked a little...how do I put it... a little shabby.


    Ed.- Oh yeah, and thx.

    in a perfect world people would just use a pic of themselves. exceptions would be made for horribly overweight chicks obviously, but girls dont use the internet anyway so its a moot point

    Who the **** would do that?

    You mean like if the two of you got the same name and avatar, why not already give it to everybody here?
    Several hundred MegaJesus San's with those cartoon character avatars, differing only in the number of posts and Membership tags... Hmmm....




    No, thank you.

    I have no idea how to accomplish this unless people manually keep a record of their avatars in their profile.

    Sounds like another human dream shattered by the ones and zeros...

    Dweidman - is there any way to incorporate a new part of software into the board's current one or would it need complete change? In my mind I can imagine a simple solution: a "do not change the avatar picture for this user in any post of older date" command line... ;-)

    Phrost - how would the manual record-keeping work? It wouldn't show on the actual avatar, would it?
