As an experiment, we're going to relax restrictions regarding avatars a bit. Specifically, the waiting period for uploading and changing holiday themed avatars will be shortened to 14 days (instead of 28).

This applies to uploading a holiday themed avatar as well as reverting to a normal one, but not switching from one holiday avatar to another. We're going to start with the following holidays: Halloween, Christmas, Hanukkah and Ramadan. Depending on our experiences, those rules are subject to change.

Thanks to Sgt. Bombulous for the suggestion!

You can change to your holiday photo now, and in 14 days get your cookie monster back.

what if i want to change my avatar so something completley non-related to a holiday, could i then change it again 14 days later (to another non-related holiday avatar)?

This will make it much easier to get rid of my Christmas avatar when I don't want it anymore. :tmb:

Cool, maybe in November we could have a thread where we could "christmas-fy" each other's avatars. Like that one made for irjudd, which was hilarious. :vlol:

Perhaps we can include more holidays later, but we'll have to see how it affects our workload first. If we have to upload avatars 24/7, we won't be able to take care of more important issues.

No, I'm afraid not. This rule is specifically meant to save people from being stuck with a Holiday avatar for a full month.

Yeah. :( Of course I'm not saying everyone would be forced to use them, but it would be fun...

:vlol: I love this idea and I'd use my "new" avatar if somebody would put a Santa hat on it or something. :cln:

We're starting small. More holidays may be added later, it depends on our experiences.

I have a doubt. If we want to switch to an holiday avatar, but the 28 days of the regular one haven't passed yet, can we still change it?

Mona Sax
18-10-10, 20:17
Yes. Just 14 days have to have passed.
