Is there anyway we can show our avatar on normal posts instead of just Private Messages? I think this would be helpful especially when Summit comes around so people will be able to recognize us.

Any thoughts for or against?


Thanks!

Wouldn't bother me, but I wonder if it could become a storage issue.?

Every Private Message seems to reference the same url for the persons avatar image so I don't think this will cause issues with storage.


Thanks!

Hi Mickey,

You are right - the current setting only displays avatar on private message, but not on public posts, because most people do not have their avatars set and that will show as broken image.

Please let me know what you think. Smiler

Cheers,

Kerry

Kerry,

Is there any way to put a default avatar in for everyone who does not have one? That way you won't get broken links.


Thanks!

Mickey

Hi Mickey,

From my research, it seems not possible to set a default avatar for those who do not choose one. To be confirmed, I will check with Groupee (the message board software company) regarding this one. Will keep all posted. Smiler

Cheers,

Kerry

Hi Mickey and all,

I just received confirmation from Groupee: This functionality doesn't currently exist and there are no plans to implement it in a future version.

Cheers, Smiler

Hey kerry. I'm revisiting this thread. I think this should definitely be a new feature request for Groupee to add to the product. It seems that every other piece of forum software gracefully handles the absense of avatars by putting a generic image up. It is weird that Groupee does not do this with their software.


Thanks!

Mickey
