You have to choose from the list - there's no option to upload your own (or, at least, it's been disabled.)

Yeah, I don't think they monitor the site very well, so forcing you to pick from the list makes it easier for them.

Actually A3DSAIL, it is monitored quite closely during regular waking hours, the problem is porno and offensive avatars as well as those containing malicious code...or so I understand.

All Mods are volunteers with the majority on the East Coast and Midwest. Sometimes things can sit for hours before they are caught.

But thanks for your opinion.

Personally I like the fact that there are limited avatars. I haven't picked one myself as I have never seen the need for one at least not yet. Some of the avatars I have seen on other forums are either crude or just plain terrible. The ones available here though are nice and I personally hope they never change the avatar rule.

The original thread is ten years old, guys.

I would prefer to use my own personal avatar. I did use Linus (from the Peanuts comic strip) for several years but I would really prefer one that no one else could use. That stated, the possibility (probability) of someone using a disgusting avatar is a real problem so I would expect that any personal avatar would have to be submitted to the PTB for approval prior it it actually being published.

On my local television news board I use a picture of Douglas, my rescued Balinese-mix cat and on a competing DIY-type board (where I haven't posted in more than a year) I use a picture of the 1906 vertical steam turbine-generator in the historical museum where I used to volunteer.
