You know how for our forum avatars we have the choice between every single "Diety" in the game currently, all except for Neamhain.

Why is she missing from the list of choices?

Was her art copyrighted from the artist/designer?

Was there some sort of coup d'état to have her forcibly removed?!

Could all of this had been the work of a disgruntled employee who detested Neamhain?!

Answers I need answers!!

Edit: If this was previously answered I don't see it, Blasted search function refuses to cater to my inquiries!

    That is odd that Neam isnt an option. But instead of them adding her I would much prefer custom pics.

    6 months later and still no custom avatars.

    I think it was their intention to keep avatars generic. With that in mind they shouldn't of lead us on about custom avatars, and I also think that they are hoping we forget about it. heh.

    Considering that Vanilla Forum (the software used by Nexon) has built-in support for custom avatars and that it has to be manually disabled, I think it's safe to say we'll never get them...

    I thought avatar support came in a different (or later) version of Vanilla. Am I wrong in that assumption? Starting to feel like I am at this point.

    On a clean Vanilla installation, the default page to configure avatars is /profile/picture.
    On our forum, it's /profile/avatar which is obviously not the same.

    Also, if you try to access the first link while being logged in, you'll get an error message saying that user photos have been disabled.

    They probably forcing all this mabi-themed avatars so they don't have to worry about people using inappropiate pictures... or that's what I think after so many months :S
    I agree we need more variety of mabi characters if they keeping everything as it is tho!

    There is a lot of characters, enough that maybe somebody should make a thread in the Suggestions (or where ever forum suggestions go) for much more NPC forum avatars. xD

    I think we should be able to have skill icons as avatars too. That'd be fun. More variety, you know?




    Unless everyone just uses FH.

    Wouldn't be the 1st time they lead us on with promises, and dropped it.
    Remember the maid hair was usable for characters in game they removed it "temporarily" to fix a glitch(which they fixed soon after), and said it would be back soon, repeated that for months then a year or so later gave us a couple pon, and said nope never coming back.

    When a nexon employee says something is coming soon I expect never, and if it does actually happen I'm pleasantly surprised.

    Well at least make it official so we can stop wondering. But I want reasons.
