    OTOH, I'd rather people listen to me because I'm right rather than because I have some image denoting authority.
    As would anyone. Problem is, some people don't give that respect.

    I'm not adamantly opposed to an avatar. I've just never really felt the need to have one before. OTOH, I'd rather people listen to me because I'm right rather than because I have some image denoting authority. And I'd rather people didn't listen to me when I'm not right...

    I have avatars and signatures turned off most of the time.

    I recognize staff by their bolder name and their usertitle.

    But .. it has been made aware internally by me and there have been made changes.

    I think that's it for now.

    Then I guess it's not a big deal. But I think a lot of people recognise the staff here from their avatars. I've always found it very helpful if I'm just looking for the "official" response about something.

    Just my 2 cents.
