Along the lines of a past avatar gallery for those who change avatars, would it not be nice if there was a gallery (much like the "new images" gallery) that you could blend in the BGG homepage ?

There's already this one: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/browser.php?itemtype=avatar. But that's only alphabetically.

Yes, I knew that one, but as you note, it does not let you see new users or new avatars...

To clarify my intention :

I´d think such a feature would add to the overall feeling of being welcomed here when you start using the BGG...

How many new users have new avatars? I mean, its only a month before they lose the badge, and 30 geekgold is quite a sum.

Well another way it would be useful and I think part of the point Arnest is trying to make, is to have people sort of automatically get some recognition, when someone finally gets their avatar like I just did for example after 1 1/2 years. Now it is proudly on display briefly on the front page in a small window, kinda like the recent images as Arnest suggests. This is also like a congratulations of sorts, people browsing the front page can see who recently earned their avatar and what they decided to pick to use for one as well. Maybe it could be just a link on the front page as to not take up more room like: members who just recently got their avatar

Yes, this is what I was thinking of. Screen estate should not be a huge problem, as we can customise our personal page...

I don´t know what would be best, just new users with an avatar or all new avatars. Possibly you could chose that too.

Poor admins
