    Avatar Captions

    I've seen other people use this function on other vBulletin forums.

    In the User CP under "Edit Profile" in the section "Additional Information" is where this field is usually seen. I think this would be a neat little addition to the forum here if you can activate it. I can't see how this could be easily misused.

    The end result is that your avatar has a little caption below it.

    Think the notion here has always been "use the sig".

    Heath has always been one to challenge the status quo.

    The facility exists in vBulletin software, it just seems an odd thing to disable.

    What's the point of it though?

    What's the point an avatar really? Its just a little bit of frivolity.

    But to answer your question, it could be used in various ways. The obvious would be to explain your choice of avatar, the second would be to add a caption for comedic effect.

    I'd certainly be in favour of an avatar-explanation.

    Do you mean an explanation of my avatar in particular, or are you generally in favour of the use of 'avatar captioning'?

    Well I'm really not sure why you've deserted Heath, TBH. It looks even worse than Cameron sans-pineapple.

    My pic will be back at some point, but I saw "Smash Palace" the other night and I felt it was time that Bruno got a deserved tribute.

    Sometimes takes a while (there is just a bit to be getting on with on a daily basis, in addition to the boss and Mr Twyman having jobs and lives), and the boss was on holiday when you first posted this thread.

    Yeah. I read that in another thread, so I thought I'd give this a bump in case he hadn't seen it!!

    I'm personally on the fence with this one.

    What do others think and depending on the response, we can consider it for addition with discussion among the moderators.
