Bitmoji Integration

(Fellowship Forums) #1


I think it would be neat to have bitmoji integration with discourse. That is, an easy way for people to use their bitmojis as their avatar.

What are your thoughts on this?

Why would we want to tightly integrate here, what is stopping a user saving a bitmoji locally and uploading it?

Nothing is stopping individuals from doing this manually. I just think that it could encourage users to create avatars, because it would be easy for them to do.

Just an idea. No idea how much work would be involved, or if this is something that other users would value, but I think it could be another function that separates discourse from competing forum platforms.

The problem with the idea though is that it lacks on mechanics.

How does this integrate? Screenshot etc?

With gravatar there is a simple URL that can be generated for any user from an email address, this does not seem to be the case with bitmoji.

Recommend you send an email to bitmoji and ask them to respond here. It could be a Discourse plugin, for sure.
