When you have less than 50 posts, you are not allowed to upload files, yet you are allowed to upload avatars. I came to the realization that the logic behind that is fucked up.

In order to fix this, I propose enacting a new rule that disallows people with less than 50 posts to choose their own avatars. Yet they will not go without avatars. You see, people with more than 50 posts will be able to upload and change the avatars of the people with less than 50 posts to whatever they want. This method will work the same way as title changing.

Here's what it boils down to...

If you have more than 50 posts, you will be able to select your own avatar AND you'll be able to choose the avatar of people with less than 50 posts. If you have less than 50 posts, you will not be able to change your own avatar.

Might this make Newbies go on posting sprees?

You know, in a desperate attempt to get 50 posts!

Wouldn't they already do the same in order to reach 50 posts and upload files?

Then they'd become a spammer (thus ensuring they'd never reach 50 posts) or banned accordingly.

Wouldn't changing other peoples avatars encourage people uploading constantly, like custom titles with bandwidth?

After what stew mentioned (and I had completely forgotten about), I'm not sure if I'm going to do it or not. It would waste a hell of a lot more disk space and bandwidth than I'd want to deal with further down the road.

Damn you, stew. Damn you!

Darn... That'd be quite unfair to some of us, because I'm not a postaholic and I guess reaching a post number of 50 will require me of a long time...

You could store each of those user avatars centrally, so only one 3rd-party avatar file is stored at once for any one user.

Why don't you just have a set avatar for them? Or have a small group of four or five avatars and the one most apt is given to them until they get 50 posts.

I for one would enjoy seeing a newbie with a big picture stating "Fresh Meat for the Grinder" as his avatar.

Actually, that's probably the most plausible idea to aim for with this.

Change of plans: WE NEED NEWBIE AVATARS!

Time for a new thread!

EDIT: Screw it, no new thread, just post obnoxious, newbie avatars here, if you come up with some ideas.

I made a thread a while back, "Post here and your post count drops by 500", it's in the Hall of Shame, check it out. Since they willingly made their post counts negative, they will be subject to the same "less than 50" rule.

Can you make it so that we can only have one uploaded avatar for someone else at one time?

Like, we get a folder, and it can only have one file in it. When we upload a new one, it deletes the old one.

So we would have a directory /users/ice/newbavatar/newb.gif

And say we wanted to change someones avatar, it would automatically use the file in the /newbavatar/ folder. This is hard to explain.
The position being taken is not to be mistaken for attempted education or righteous accusation, only a description, just an observation of the pitiful condition of our degeneration.

I voted for the worst idea ever, although it's not really the worst idea. Trust me I've seen worse. Just it was the only negative option.

I kinda like my avatar, but my post count will likely never reach 50. My vote goes to "worst idea ever", unless I can get some sort of immunity to this.

Well, there's another way to do it. A way that isn't based on post count, but rather on the amount of time you've been registered. Like if you've been registered for less than a month, people can change your avatar, regardless of how many posts you have.

Having it based on time seems more fair to me.

I don't like the time thing.

Like, we have people like Pascal who never post yet have been registered forever.

I was registered at the IGod for like a month before I started posting.
