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.

by no custom armatars do you mean no armatars?

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.

I don't think they're going to delete any of the current ones, but you can expect more armatars in the future. Probably even more human-type ones.

What is wrong with animals? Are you vegetarian? LOL.

So, all the current Armatars will be kept, new Armatars will be created, and a possiblity that Seasonal Armatars will return. Last batch of those specials came out last year of spring.

It would be a nice idea to put the custom armatars though. Otherwise ('-' add something cute like ... an armed cat! : D

You can't. You can only choose from the list, and it'll stay like that for a while.

Carlie had a wonderful thread competition going back in 2009/2010 with those seasonal armatars and I'm hoping they will re-introduce this when the new website launches! =)

I know Cenere made an attempt to get it back, but none of the admins responded on the matter and it is deemed futile for now... but who knows? Never say never!
