Overview:

This product simply allows you to select usergroups which will be required to define an avatar before being allowed to browse the forums.

If you require users to define an avatar regardless of the number of posts they have made, they will see the following:



If you have given your affected users "grace posts", then once they have made that number of posts, they will see something like:

Okay, let me know how it goes!

The only changes I had to make to port this was choose another hook (the one I used for the vB4 version doesn't exist in vB3), and wrap the error messages in eval(). Piece of cake.

I have Default Avatar installed, just to fill in the blanks for those without an avatar.
Though they have an avatar, create by addon, your addon says they don't have an avatar, any way to only get this to only show message for those with dead avatar image links?

Although I haven't looked at the code for that product, I suspect it displays an image after the fact, when none is to be found in the traditional manner. This product checks to see if a user actually has an avatar associated with their account (but not an image shown if not). I'm thinking one would use either product, but not both.
