Isn't there a way I can customise mine, rather than choose from your gallery (which is a lovely gallery, but, you know...)...? Thanks!! :wink:

Well given that it is commonly found on other websites (reference www.seal.com or www.lennykravitz.com or www.raphaelsaadiq.com), surely there is a way... :wink:

Depending on how the forum is managed or how its set up, A pre-defined gallery of avatars is used to maintain the speed and loading of the forum that is effecient for every user.

most phpBB forums give the admin the choice of Gallery avatars, uploaded avatars or 'off-site' avatars. 'Uploaded' avatars arent a good idea as they take up space on the site/server, so most forums choose the have avatars that are stored off-site at hosts like Imageshack or PhotoBucket. Only problem with giving the members that freedom is making sure no imagery is posted that detracts from that forum. So with large member base, editing each image to make sure its deemed approapiate is a big job, so a pre-defined gallery gives you everything the admin wants.

But on the other hand, the gallery can be added to. Maybe the Admin would make a section of members work in the 'Jam' theme so there's some degree of customised avatars available.

Who knows ...... :wink:

At the moment, you can only have avatars that are from the forum gallery, so it means you're not able to upload your own onto the forum.

But you never know, this might change in the future :)
