Hey teebling can we get an Elwynn Forest/Goldshire avatar? Like, a landscape sort of thing?
An idea for the future growth of the forum - do we need the feature implemented which would "lock" the avatar, which is picked already by another user? It would be interesting to hear your opinion on this guys.
Wouldn't that mean that you'd have to make a new avatar for every new user once the current icons run out?
To be fair, there are quite a few avatars to choose from. But yeah, if we got to that point it would be a problem.
Or just lock those that were asked to be added to the gallery so those who asked for them would be the only ones able to use them.
I'll consider this - hopefully it wouldn't be too difficult to develop or hire someone to do it. No extensions with this functionality exist out there that I can modify for barrens chat at the moment. I'll do some digging on github and see what there is available.
In the meantime, there's more than five thousand to choose from so it shouldn't be an issue - however I can see what you mean. I reckon some avatars will be more popular than others, and since you are restricted to choosing one from the gallery as opposed to uploading your own, they could loose their unique feeling.
To be honest, I agree. Well said.
Would it be possible to have themed avatars for seasonal times, perhaps? Times such as Christmas, Easter, Halloween...

Not exactly a request but this wiki page could be a good source of additional avatars. They are old forum icons and are sorted so that column one is a fresh character, two is a level 60, three is 70, etc. Excluding the Blood Elves, Draenei and Death Knights they should fit this forum pretty well!
@Authiel I have added those forum avatars for you :) They are in a new folder called 'Races and Classes'. I did not include Blood Elf/Draenei, nor level 70 and level 80 avatars.
I have also added another gallery called 'Animated' with some of the old dancing animations, just for fun.
