Avatar notification

Is there anything to notify and encourage users to upload their avatars?

We do show a JIT message to new users without a custom avatar. I don’t recall the exact moment from the top of my head though…

we developed this plugin for the same reason:

but it needs update for sure, as ember@discourse has updated a lot during time.

The reminder to add an avatar is shown at post creation time when a user has a few posts under their belt already. So be a new user, have a default avatar, and read and post a bit. Then you will get the reminder when creating another new reply,

Can I set that to show for example after the first post? people generally come and create a topic without any avatars and my forum seems a little awkward now.

Also, disabling local logins in favor of social logins like Facebook gives you more avatars.

Unfortunately most of social networking websites are blocked in my area. On the other hand, people don’t care to put avatars in their gmail or yahoo accounts. So I think my best solution is to ask it directly from them, as soon as possible.
