Make People upload profile picture before posting topic

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have noticed that a lot of new people do not have a profile picture. It sorta makes the forums look bland. or at least maybe a bank of pre made profile pics of some sort, Maybe some of the Linus Tech Tips logo or the LMG logo or something along those lines.

No, I think that it is relatively low effort to find a funny or good profile pic and upload it. maybe a "profile setup" process before you could post

Requiring a profile picture would help combat spam before it gets to Mods or actual spam filters.

I also don't remember people by their name I remember people by their profile pics.

Which is why I hate when people change it :P

 

But yeah when there are way too many default grey heads it makes it hard to follow a conversation honestly

I think it's like any of those graphs with a "valley".   Change it too infrequently and no one will remember you when you do, but never change it and there's no problem, or change it so often you become that guy who always changes it and people expect/recognize that :)

I think having multiple default ones would be good, but I don't agree with forcing people to upload one.

It'd be great to have a lot of default ones then... if we get too many people all using the same one, that's arguably worse than everyone just using the grey head :P

We could possibly have randomized patterns so they're all unique and easy to tell apart, but unfortunately I have a looonnggg list of other stuff that needs to get done right now :\ But I really like this idea so if I have nothing to do one weekend this might happen.

Don't try and force me to upload a Avatar I'm fine with the default one.

Resistance is futile.  Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be differentiated from our own.

No, that would add so much friction to the sign up process and would stop lots of people who are just making and account for one question. 

We might be able to use gravatar though, which would help. I'll look into that at some point.

Don't really care to. Sometimes you just have to deal with things. If this forum tried to tell me I had to. That would be the last day I visited it.


It's always a good day if you woke up breathing.

Just generate a random avatar from a random linustechtips themed database, the database could be filled with suggestions that submitted by users them self.

But why? Why would it stop you from enjoying the forum?
