Been up all night, working hard and... towards the end lofting a few and should just let this pass, but I can't. Recall this: Who would have thought goog would be dragged through the courts for street view. After all, that's only a few harmless pics.
Avatars are NOT evil... never said that. Legal exposure, however, is everywhere and keeping track of TEXT is hard enough much less adding images (and who can track all of those?). (Remember recent youtube lawsuits?)
Believe me, gals and guys, I'm NOT against avatars, I simply do not think they will add to the Webmasterworld experience, nor will they make WW more "cuddly" or "cute" as we are neither of those in the first place... else you (the greater out there you) wouldn't be here in the first place. "You" have been to all the avatar rich places and keep coming back here, else we wouldn't be having this conversation, and I have to ask why? Could it be that this is a place to get answers rather than strokes?
How did I get stuck on the avatar question? My want from Brett and co is getting customization of font and color back, and that's all I wanted (with perhaps a bit of fluid layout so I can zoom this for my aging cataract laden eyes)
I've given all the cautions regarding avatars I can give. Sign me Buzz Killington
I like that my baby nick was Buzzy until I got old enough to throw fists.
