Not being able to upload your own avatar sucks

Everyone looks the same now, it's so boring and mundane..



I like the design change, but in terms of functionality*, I still think Nexon Europe's forum is better – it allows for stuff like custom avatars and signatures –which is basic stuff, like come on! image

*Besides the HTML support, it's something I've wanted in forums for a long time. Great initiative!

    They should do the WoW thing where you can just use your character as your avatar, Don't know how difficult that is though.

    And that's why there's a report button. You shouldn't hinder creativity because of one bad sheep. I've been a member of the EU forum for as long as I have this one, and I haven't encountered any harmful sigs.

    the difference between the 2 communities is rather large, we don't have a good track record when it comes to siggys

    Not to mention that you'd have to have size restrictions, image size restrictions, image amount restrictions. Whereas it's simpler to just not allow them to be used.

    I can't see the web designers opting out of signatures because of difficulty, it's ludicrous to even propose it. Restrictions like these are super easy to implement, literally every forum has them.

    It's being worked on! It's a thing lots of people want so I'm sure it won't take too long.

    As for signatures... I think it would be neat, but it's not the end of the world if it's unavailable.

    I think if Signatures would have to be earned i think it'll be fine.

    Eh... I'm just glad that they'll be available again. While I am cool with keeping this current avatar of a Dragon, I miss MY dragon.

    Choosing your own avatar is something that we plan on adding. We want to make sure all the core functionality exists, before we start with the ancillary stuff.

    Signatures are something that I'm considering, but it is definitely easy to abuse. Still thinking about this one.

    I was alittle disappointed that I couldn't change my avatar to my normal Kagome picture. I am sure we will get the feature before we know it.
    I can't wait. I wish atleast they would have a female Xenon for me to use.

    Just don't allow pictures or images in signatures. So they won't get too big or abused.

    I'm opposed to sigs all together but if there are no images I can allow that. But there will always be that one guy...
