I presumed it obvious the purpose of that is to get some sense of who we are talking with and to recognize the member when encountered in real life. A tiny photo where your face cannot be seen is worthless really, so if all one can conjure up is a "body" shot, then change it to something machine tool related or don't have an avatar at all.

Avatar Pixels ??
If I have a 1,000,000 pixel picture will the Avatar process shrink the whole image to 80 x 80 or to allowed size? Or do I have to shrink it first?

Is a picture of a lathe dog allowed?
that could be considered frivolous.
What about a mill hound?

Insert your picture in a word document and save it as a web page. This will give you a folder with the big picture and a thumbnail. The small picture is almost always small enough for avatars, etc.

1. Hindu Mythology. the descent of a deity to the earth in an incarnate form or some manifest shape; the incarnation of a god.
2. an embodiment or personification, as of a principle, attitude, or view of life.
3. Computers. a graphical image that represents a person, as on the Internet.
Since meanings 2 and 3 seem to apply here, limiting an avatar to a machine or machine related picture would seem in most instances to negate the meaning of the word.
Or perhaps we are all nothing more than machines.

This is an interesting topic of discussion..... very amusing thanks in part to the main antagonist OX..... who would have guessed that one
I find the avatar guidelines a bit constricting only because really they are so dang small that they make 90% of all interesting pictures a mass glob of nothing. Mine for example is the 1/2 mill of industrial duct work that my crew and I installed in TN. Milacron's I thought was a castle in flames and that always made me wonder about him.....
