This is another re-take on the Armatar discussion because we need to clarify a few points.

First, this topic is to discuss how the AG3 beta manages armatars.

Secondly, if you just want to ask for new armatars, discuss it with Dan.

Third, we are still discussing whether we want to allow custom armatars in the future, because of copyright and licensing issues that will come up from that, so that idea is ON HOLD.

If messages in here aren't about the interface we've built, how we could improve it, etc., then I'll probably trim the message.

Questions about how to unlock armatars, etc., are totally welcome and I'll provide answers as I have them. As of the time I write this, the understanding I have is that all AG2 armatars will be unlocked on AG3 by default, and we will unlock seasonal armatars through some process eventually.

We are also going to start asking game developers for one or more armatars related to their game, which users can select, but I don't think they'll be locked in any way. We've talked about unlocking special armatars based on achievements, but since achievements aren't finished yet, we can't go into much detail on that.

And maybe you should do an Armatar contest and the best 100 armatars.

The admins would have to approve that and actually be active in the community. Unlikely.

An Armatar Contest? I currently live near the AG company. I can just drive over there to send in as many pictures as I want!

Good luck, but like with most things they'll probably ignore it.

AG is so ignorant...

But an armatar contest will probably just be hosted by a mod or admin (if we end of getting one) and be sort of an annual thing in the AMW.

It means users can't upload their own armatars.

So, Armatars will stay the same, and Custom Armatars will be back? That's great!

...

At least make an effort to read the opening post and the title. "No costume armatars". If you mean the SEASONAL armatars, they may return.

Custom*

Let's see how long we'll have to wait for an edit button. Hopefully less than five years.

I think there's a good idea to unlock armatars for "game points" that you unlock getting scores in different games

The new Armatars will have things from the online games here, and popular games here as well. Also, it will have the old ones like now, and probably Seasonal Armatars.
