I also reckon if someone has a certain amount of AP, say 1,000, they should have an option to choose their own Armatar. I'd like to have an Armatar that suits my username, and I'm sure many others would too.


There are multiple possible meanings, so I will reply to each meaning I see.

If you mean Custom Armatars, they are currently restricted to admins with no apparent AP requirement.

If you mean Choose your Armatar, you can always choose your armatar from a list that grows as you gain AP. When you reach 10,000 AP, you will have access to every armatar except for inactive seasonals and custom armatars created by admins.

Great idea I think it would also be a good idea to be able to upload your own Armatars as well as the presets

Not saying it is a bad idea but I hate forums that have gifs.

I mean seriously. Have you ever been on the EA FIFA forums? There's a gif as their avatar and about 20 in their signature. It doesn't lag at all but it looks bad and one of the reasons I like AG is because it looks so clean.

Could there be some way to have it be a gif on your profile but a normal jpeg or whatever in the forums?

Just have an option to turn off sigs.

Kongregate allows gif avatars, not many people use them, but the ones I see aren't annoying. With how small armatars are displayed in the forum, I don't see it being distracting/annoying.
