Avatars, anyone?

[ Edited ]

I'm happy to tell you that we have just added Avatars to Nokia Support Discussions.


Avatars are icons that you can attach to your user profile. At the moment there are 80 pictures to choose from; 30 Nokia products and 50 other images.

Have a look and choose the one that suits you best! Note that many users can share the same Avatar.

Here's how you add an Avatar to your profile:
1) Click "Edit my info" on the right
2) Choose the "Icons" tab
3) View the folders and just pick the icon you prefer.

Your chosen icon will then be automatically shown on all the posts you've made. You can change your Avatar whenever you want. (Do note that other users may get to recognize you by your Avatar so changing it may lead to a small identity crisis :smileywink: )

We'll be adding new ones regularly so if you have any suggestions for products or images to be included, feel free to post here!


Starting from the rank of Professor, you can use any picture as your personal avatar. Please make it to be 60x60 pixels. If you need any help with editing or uploading a picture, just send me a private message.

Re: Avatars, anyone?

How about letting us add our own. I am a member of various discussion boards and they all let us add our own avatars, so why not the Nokia Board. Scared?

Hi schtooo,

I was sure someone would ask this sooner or later :smileywink:

Well, call me a chicken if you like but at the moment we indeed don't allow users to create their own icons. However, this might be possible for some of the highest ranks in the future.

By the way - are any of the boards you mentioned run by corporations?

Re: Avatars, anyone?

Actually no. This is the only Corporation run board that I am a member of, the others are all user or fan boards and are moderated by the creator. However I am aware that some avatars have been banned or deleted for various reasons, and this type of issue would have to be monitored on these boards as well. I do not know how difficult this would be, but it would be worth looking into to allow a little more personalisation on the boards.

We should allowed to add our own icons subject to Nokia's scrutiny. This will add personal touch and make this forum lively

I also think that we shall choose our own avatar. Corporation board or not. What ever we post is about our personality, so our avatars should be. We should be accepted so as we are so long we don't hurt the corporate image.

I'm also a member (not very active, in fact) of Nokia Forum. There, things are differend, more professional oriented. This one is a consumer oriented, and consumers are consumers...

YUP!Agree wid it.
And even, sometimes I notice the avatars of products are not updated as soon as they are announced.I cant add E90 till now.
Also, there is fear we may post inappropriate avaters/icons:smileysurprised: so, I think automatic protection should have like everyone post a thread containing explicit it is replaced by *bleep*:smileyhappy:

Re: Avatars, anyone?

OK, we get the point :smileywink:

We are checking this internally and trying to find the best way to do this properly. If we decide to do this - and I'm not yet saying that we will - then most likely this option will be enabled from certain user ranks onwards.

We'll keep you posted.

Thaenks for reponse.

Y mean as ranks get higher user will have the ability to use his own/personal avatars:smileywink:?

That is nice.And is more likely to a reward to a user who works hard and gets higher.

Re: Avatars, anyone?

New avatars added for
N91 8GB, Nokia 5300, E90, N70, N73_music and N76.

Since the pictures are pretty small it may be difficult know exactly which phone is in the picture. You can see the name of each picture in your browser's address bar once you've selected it. So if the address ends with ...e90.gif, you've got the E90.

(And yes, we are still working on the possibility to add your own avatars.)

Yes! If I could add my own style of avatars it will be great! The phone models' pics are limited only to the avatars given but if we can add our own customized GIF pics of related phone models....
Yeah!

Certainly! Please posts requests here. (We don't automatically add every new Nokia product as it's a long list.)

Re: Avatars, anyone?

And I asked (if memory not betrays) vandelay in PM when we can add customizable icons.
You said you are on the vacation and come late August and do that.
Please, add that option, it would be great.
I have stunning pic of my N91 and want to see that right beneath my name . :smileyhappy:
