  • Why canít I select my own unique avatar?

    We chose to limit the use of avatars to information that is helpful to facilitate the exchange of information between GUA members.

    It is useful for members to understand when you are interacting with one another, where other members are located. It is also useful to know when you are interacting with Kodak or with elected members of the GUA Board who represent your interests.

    Currently there are restrictions on the use of:
    ē Avatars Ė small symbol that appears in your posts, beside your name
    ē Smilies Ė small graphical symbols of human emotion
    ē Polling Ė small surveys to poll fellow members on specific topics
    ē Reputation Ė assignment of status to specific members based on post count or post usefulness

    Yeah, Yeah, just like the government limiting our freedom of expression...

      Hey - recalcitrant past-user association president - shouldn't your avatar be the GUA logo - are you flying anonymous? Hmmmmm - highly suspicious

      I didn't think your government was limiting your freedom - just listening to your phone calls.....

        Amen.

        ... And why can't we choose our display name? Maybe I really hate my email name that was assigned to me. Maybe I want my screen name to be "Grand Pappy Joe".

          Hi Jason,

          Actually - I can take care of that for you We just needed a default for launch and folk usually remember the first part of their email address.....but if you'd really like to be "Grand Pappy Joe" (interesting choice ) I can make that happen for you...

          Let me know,
          Lesley

            It's kind of like a hunger strike for real avatars, except you don't go hungry.

                No I am not in or from Italy.

                However, since I canít select a personalized avatar, I have opted to select the flag of the country of where I would like to be. So at this moment, I am wishing I was back in San Gimignano, Italy, sipping a glass of the rosso vino del casa (poor translation Ė I know) overlooking the beautiful Tuscan countryside.

                Tomorrow, who knows Ė maybe Brazil (they have a cool flag).

                Salute Ė Cheers Ė Bottoms up!!!!

                    Jason may be on to something. Especially the wine drinking part.

                      Good to see there are personalities behind the (non)avatars.
