    Quite simply, my suggestion is to preset one of the Gravity promotional avatar as the default avatar for members who have not chosen their own avatar. (As far as I know, the default avatar depends on your gender, whether male/female/unspecified). I believe that this will help to make the forums more presentable.

    A fair suggestion, I'll certainly get one set up, although the current ones are probably a little bold. Give me a few days and see what happens :emoji_relaxed:

    That looks good, if maybe a little bland.

    Well the idea behind a default avatar is that it is bland to show that the user hasn't deliberately chosen that avatar and it is something which is provided as a default.

    That's true. We'll see what the others think.

    @Ferby - Try make the background a bit darker/more grey than the G & the rocket.

    I've uploaded the new default avatars. It is likely that both your computer and the server will have cached the old images, so they may not be visible for a short while. I'll do my best to get them visible shortly.
