Calling our Community members to help us come up with new avatars!

Hey Community,

 

Over the coming weeks, we’re looking to refresh the avatars on the Community. While we're  big fans of butterflies, mountains, and soccer balls, we wanted to include more options- ones that can reflect the diversity and personalities of our customers. That's why we're reaching out to you here, so that we can get your contribution in our next set of avatars.

 

If you'd like to get involved and help shape our new avatars, it's very simple! All you need to do is attach a photo of yourself by May 30th. We encourage fun selfies with things that showcase your unique hobbies and personalities!

 

How do I participate?

  1. Hit 'Reply' to this post OR send a private message to Alan_K.
  2. Find the Photos button in the text editor box
  3. 'Choose file' to select the photo you want, and hit done!

 

Note: These photos won’t be shared publicly and will only be used internally as we create new avatars that demonstrate the uniqueness and diversity of our beloved Community.

 

 

Thanks,

Alan

How about being able to make your own and if it violates decorum or someone complains about it then it needs to get changed.

How about less niceties, and fixing the problems that continue to plague the service.  I’m just a customer, but this is ridiculous that after being here since the summer of 2016, there are still so many unresolved issues.

@stonechucker  I agree but it is probably easier to dress up the lithium interface (which PM does not develop) than it is to fix the PM portal issues, including a mobile friendly design.  i'm sure the new avatars will be featured in the next get help videos. join the community and get a a great custom avatar.

Y'know window dressing is just about it. If the prime directive was fulfilled: calls in/out, texts in/out, internet and paying for it - then everything else is window dressing. ie. really. just. doesn't. matter.

Those things should be solid. Nothing else matters and are just for fun and "community". Fine. Nice. But doesn't matter.

Re: Calling our Community members to help us come up with new avatars!

I'm not too concerned about avatars but do wonder if resources could be better spent elsewhere.  At the end of the day, a new icon beside someone's name doesn't make the help someone provides a member any better or worse, nor does it address some of the more important issues.  I also wonder about the timing of all this, especially when we're coming off such a rough patch when it comes to system issues.

 

What I will say about the avatars is that if Public Mobile want to do something, just make the custom avatar ability available to all members.  I can't imagine that taking more than a few minutes to implement (someone correct me if I'm wrong about that).  I know there could be the concern about obscene avatars, but I don't see that as any different than people being able to post pictures, something that members are already allowed to do.

And I am sure they have plenty of resources to police the avatars, judging by the fact that threads here in lounge are being censored / deleted (wink to whoever felt offended by my farewell wishes to some long term forum members...)
