Social Groups Avatars


It appears the Social Groups section appears to have big ? pictures or avatars associated with each member for the members list.

Are you going to allow members to upload pictures for their Social Groups membership (I highly doubt it since LQ doesn't allow forum avatars)? If not, perhaps it needs some cleanup to only supply a text list of members, the pictures take up a lot of real estate and I'd imagine once there's a lot of members, these will take up more space than necessary on the specific group pages.

Contributing Members and mods can upload profile pictures, which will be shown both in their profile and in places like Social Groups. It's possible we'll expand this to senior members or some other groups in the future, although we have no definitive plans at this time. We have no plans to offer forum avatars at this time.

I already knew this about the profile pictures but it just seems sort of a waste to see a row of ? pictures when viewing a social group, was wondering if we can disable that or clean it up some? I'd imagine the % of users that are contributing members and or moderators is very small compared to rest of us.
