Why do a couple of people have avatars and everyone else doesn’t?
Has someone been hacking the woot computers?


#2

#3

No he’s not taking about the sig block.
I have see a couple of people who have avatars (in the left panel).
“Cop” is one that I recall.


#4

i was thinking this is how they show mods?

the fAQ states it has to be turned on by a moderator in order for the feature to be available.


#5

ahh ok…I’m thinking you are correct…maybe…I sure haven’t found a way to put one up yet.

gotcha…maybe it will be a woot award for getting 1000 posts…anyone else think that would be a cool idea??

I had the option for an av (line in profile) the first few days, but I think the feature was disabled…COP and Bravo! got theirs up, before the feature was shut off…unless, they hacked.

this seems the most likely explanation thus far.

We’re working on getting that back up with some limitations on size.

I think it would be exactly the opposite of a good idea.

I wrote a little windows “web bot” yesterday to run my count up in the post-whoring thread. It should take me no more than 90 minutes to get to 10,000 if I wanted to, but after just two dozen, I felt dirty.

Now how much do you think jerks would pay me for a copy?

And how much good do you think there would be for the community in that?
