the community is not sarcastic... there is only 3 persons here who are permitted to play the game of stupidity... and we are on the edge of permanent ban each day...

I don't want to steer away from the topic. This is an issue that effects many people and we're lucky that SLR722 was willing to bring it to our attention. I still think we need to make a poll to see what other people think.

hum, personally i think a poll have no place for this here... the more you give the availability to a feature for guests, the more they will request more features...

this site is for LICENSED vBulletin OWNERS... period.

and this was not sarcastic.

Hey, we're only talking about an Avatar. It's not like the world is going to end if an unregistered user has their own Avatar.

Plus, it might be good PR for vb.org. I'm not saying we enable anything else... just the Avatars. That's all SLR722 really asked for.

SLR bought his license 10 minutes after complaining about his avatar... and then updated his avatar.... SO, why would vb.org have to comply to SLR-like users who will anyway buy their license to use the site?

SLR didn't want unlicensed members to be treated like 2nd class citizens anymore. I think we should be sympathetic towards his feelings.

As SLR stated, "Its unfair that unlicensed users have access to nothing, at least give them an avatar, where then will they have any dignity."

He just wants unlicensed members to get the respect and dignity they deserve.

If all it takes is an Avatar to do that, then... why not?

No wonder I've been getting no respect around here!

Hello.

/

To you. I had my licence for a long time now, and I said originally I was not showing up as licensed and that are non licence members here not allowed avatars, three minutes after my post vB.com updated the API and vB.org recognised I was a member and enabled the avatar upload form. So not 10 minutes.

Are you being sarcastic?

All members should have all privallages on here except source code, and downloading modifications. The avatar feature is a standard feature on loads of BBs and gives user his alias, online identity.

You know, if you are not happy with the permissions given, you can always try to start a similar site and bring 25000 active members to be managed peacefully with 10 volunteers... you would see why there are restrictions...

the problem with most suggestions made about vb.org is that they can be easily applied to a small forum of 100 members... not with the size of this site. because usually, the persons who are suggesting have no idea how can be a mega-big forum.

Good point. But you assume many things. New members may have forums with over a million posts.

Stop posting here now.
