You can't upload your own armatar. You have to choose from the list they have. To do that, click control panel > armatars > click desired armatar > scroll all the way down and click update armatar.

Also, custom armatars were suggested for AG3, but the admins said no.

I Prefer that, Because if people could use custom armatars, there would be no Secret, And What is Happening in Newgrounds Might happen Here In Armor Games ( User Icons that has No sense)

Why not?
because the admins (and myself, and lots of other people) don't trust the people of armor games to put pictures that follow the rules, if you look at the first post in the faces of armor games thread then you'll see that they weren't really expecting that to last long because of all the non rule abiding pics that people might post

don't trust the people of armor games to put pictures that follow the rules,

That's not the reason. The reason they've given was copyright laws, but look at a bunch of other sites; Kongregate, NewGrounds, Tumblr... [hundreds of other websites that allow you to use custom pictures].

The issue isn't trust, it's that they're incredibly outdated and don't like change.

We have this discussion before... and im sure we will have it again... but all in all it is like it is, AG say "No" and thats it (equal which reasons they have).

I don't think there was ever a hard no to custom armatars. They just didn't want to discuss it but users still wouldn't stop talking about custom armatars even though it was stated multiple times that there should be no discussion about custom armatars. It's not no custom armatars, it's no discussion about custom armatars because it's something to be addressed at a later date after initial launch of wahtever features it is that they're working on most importantly. There just aren't going to be custom armatars at launch just as there isn't going to be a new community at launch. People just need to stop suggesting or discussing it because it's far too commonly suggested and it's on the backburner.

I guess this discussion will be held over and over again, indefinitely...

Wait untill the new AG3 website is launched and see what Armatars will be available people.

There has been mentioning of Dan looking into changing/adding the current set of Armatars into the new website, but this has been put on ice because they have to get AG3 ready for launch first. The armatars are of later concern...

And that person would most likely be banned instantaneously...can't say whether perma-banned or just banned. But they would get banned

So if you can't, why is it when i play a game like The Last Stand - Dead Zone (and assuming you play'ed the game) you go to the map of the city and you see your the other people playing they have a photo as them selves as there armatar picture? How were they able to do that and its not just 1 or 2 people its many.

Because they are playing through Facebook. Thus, they just use their display pic in-game.
