you know how your title is locked until you reach 1000 posts? Well I think that your avatar should be locked too...and your avatar should relate to your current title.

Soooo

if your title is bantha fodder then you get an avatar of bantha fodder

so on and so forth until you hit 1k and can do whatever you want. :D

I don't think I even need to point out the downsides to such a scheme.

Sure, its easy for you...Mr.3304 posts...

Some people don't feel the need to/don't have to time to spam, thus they got low post counts, but still deserve to pick a custom avy IMHO.

NO.

How would anyone recognize me without my avatar? Besides, just looking at about 10 generic avatars would be very boring after 2 minutes...

Its a long enough wait for a custom title....plus this would increase spam even more than now

Mr. over 7000 posts!

We need to overthrow the gove--er, the big names!

I think spam would plummet if we did away with forced entitlement all together.

Oh what?! We both posted at the same time DarkLord 60. After I was taken back to the forum after posting the latest post was under your name. Cool :D .

I really don't think that would be a smart move, the spam would be incredible... but, you can start another profile, and do exactly what you said:p


Even though that's against the rules;)

Sure.

Except to be fair, of course, you will need to have your post count reset.

I'm sorry, I just don't like that idea. I love customization by being able to have my avatar as homestar everyday. Ranks would be great if it were based on post quality. And a moderator can promote you. I don't even think posts counts should even matter so much as that we have to lose our customization rights because we don't post a lot or just joined. How else can I get my personality across? If I may suggest, maybe custom title can begin at 500 posts, and name glow after 1000. Please don't hurt me.

Naw, Glow at 500, custom title at 750.

We hurts him:)

I don like it just because I hardly ever even look at the usernames by the posts. I know most people by their avatars.

dont hate me because ive been here a year n a half...or Z...

yalls just jealous *glances over at post count* nuts eh, I barely post like once or twice a day too.

of course you can always disable an avatar...help save some of the bandwith here you know, cause this isnt the fastest website.

Don't like that idea. No offense. People spam enough as it is to get the custom title...let alone give them a goal of an avi?

no thanks

I've seen it at SW.com

The Hyperspace members have avatars and colored names. I don't really like it because it makes the non-members all look the same. I can't tell who's who!

Thats what I was thinking. The site can get super slow. Most of you guys have crappy avs anyways, so what do you care? If you really want an icon so bad, go sign up for AIM or MSN Messenger. :p

It doesn't matter to me either way. I have over 1000 posts, so nothing will happen to me either way. ;)

Yeah. Not too smart an idea.

And for the record, it is Redwing who has over 14000 posts, not Darky.
