Yes, that is correct; though I don't know how that relates in any way to armatars.

With the whole custom armatar thing, if your worried about copyright issues, why not have it that there are several templates, and that you can have say a background, a middle and a front, but only from a selection of things, kind of like the armatar selection we have now?

This would mean that not as many people would have the same armatars, giving everyone an individual look, while still keeping within copyright infringements. Just a thought, though now I would really like the idea of that

That's similar to the armatar contests they had a while ago where people would draw armatars and an administrator would decide whether or not to add them to the site; that's how we got seasonal/holiday armatars.

I like the idea of it, but without a person like a moderator or administrator to manage it, I don't think it will work. If you just give users the ability to draw things and add them as a picture then it's likely a few people will ruin it for others by drawing obscene things and spreading them around the site.

custom armatures would be a really cool improvement. as said before though, hard to keep bad pictures off the site. i would guess that i just depends on how much of a workload the armor games team wants. you could go all out n make it so people can upload pictures or maybe just have a design page where people can draw their own. if the latter is chosen then it can go through a confirm sorta process where you submit and people approve. going even further, you could set up a collection of pre-approved designs made by the armor games staff or designers, and people could unlock new designs and add them to their armature. (kinda like on COD for the insignia thing). not sure if this was really relevant to the topic but just some ideas :)

That would be a great idea, and it's what I originally meant when I said for the custom avatar thing. It's funny because I was thinking of the COD insignia thing when I wrote it as well :)

That sounds like a neat idea, but it all depends if they have someone who wants to manage that sort of thing, like a moderator or administrator.

Depends what you mean by that. If you mean images taken from websites then they've already said no to that because of copyright laws and such. If you mean drawn armatars then that's taken into account, but they'll need someone to manage those, which means it won't be there at launch or anytime soon. Also says "no custom armatars" in the threads title, so...
