Twitch does it with newly registered users by assigning them a random bipedal-geometric character granted they haven't uploaded a personal avatar yet.

It boggles my mind how some users can spend 10+ years on this site, yet not have the decency to upload a personal picture that defines who they are as a poster.

I don't really see a big point in this. I'd see it as a wasted effort.

Member of 10+ years here. I haven't added an avatar, not through a lack of courtesy but because I don't see it as being defining to who am I as a poster.

EDIT: Oh, I checked and apparently I have added an avatar. I had actually forgotten about that.

I can all but guarantee this will never happen.

For one thing, if a user doesn’t have an image that defines them as a poster, why would this site try to use some random-image selector to define that user? For another, this site doesn’t really thrive on avatars the way other sites do - that’s by design. Many users prefer the simplistic layout over the more convoluted layouts of other sites.

I short, I can’t see this ever being a thing here.

I personally don't care either way....

But more often than not, older users were not accustomed to having the option to add a pic at all and I'm sure many of these users still prefer not to have one.

Remember TC, not everyone cares for this site to be like facebook or twitter. I still prefer that pics not get inbedded in threads except in rare circumstances.

This is satire right? Why should I need an avatar crapping up a profile I never had an interest in having in the first place? If anything I wish we could remove the default "blue person" avatars it places altogether.
Don't try to think we can understand each other. For some reason, people think that they can do that. Remember that they can't. Never completely. Never enough.

This site hadn't had avatars when it was created and it doesn't need them now. In fact that I can't see your avatar anyway they may as well not exist.

Some people just don't want an avatar.
In addition, assigning a random image runs the risk of assigning someone box art from a game they had a bad experience with.
