Just logged on and my Avatar changed by itself.

 

Anybody else?

If you didn't have an avatar then you now have your user name's initial by default. It makes it easier to follow discussions...

You should put the scrabble points on those Avatar tiles. Then I might learn the points per letter in scrabble (always comes up at quiz!)

Going to take a little while to get used to the change, certainly bugged me at first!

 

 

 

but default avatars to your first letter is pretty common out there, be a nice change from the bland identical picture for everyone!

It might be useful to have the colour a random pastel ish colour rather than all being the same if possible

Yes, I had this idea but first implementation it is... Once it is randomised then just deleting the avatar will create a new, different one.

Or, it may remind people to put their own pictures in.

 

If I remove my Minion, do I get a T?

Shame its username and not real name because I would change the real name to emoji just for the lolz.
