Default Avatars?

Wondering if regular members will eventually be allowed them? I know right now its the way to tell a mod. Is there a way to put a moderator tag on mos an just give everybody avatars?

Yeah, at present the only option to set an avatar we get on the CP is "no avatar." I guess it's to stop those spambots setting non-worksafe avs or something, but it shouldn't be too hard to set up a "confirmed users" usergroup for people we know are actual people and giving that group the right to set their av.

Avatars would be great. No avatars makes Sexual Harassment Panda a saaaaad panda.

It was brough up once i believe in randomness that avatars were being used to identify mods a while back. I think it was mt that said that.

Besides, can't the mods' accounts be edited in the administrator's CP so that "Senior Member" is replaced with "Moderator", much like how Bunni's says "Administrator" under his name?
