Important [New option] Customize your avatar

Post by Leviosa on February 18th 2014, 4:49 pm

FaceYourManga: Customize your avatar
Dear members,

Forumotion is happy to announce a new partnership with FaceYourManga, the market leader of avatar creation. Thanks to this partnership, Forumotion users will be able to create their personal avatar.

It is very simple: every Forumotion users may freely dispose of avatar tool through their profile: Profile>> Avatar>> Create my avatar>> FaceYourManga tool



Then a popup will appear (Hosted by FaceYourManga) with the Forum name on the top. Then, users will be able to custom their own avatar:



Once your avatar created, you just have to click on "Upload your profile" button:



Your avatar will directly appear on your profile:








Get your imagination running!!!! banana






Some limits:

As we use an external partner, we have both technical and strategic restrictions in the integration of this new feature:

1. Access to the avatar tool cannot be directly on forums but via a separate window

2. FaceYourManga is only available in English. It is not possible to translate it.

3. FaceYourManga page has 2 advertisement banners. There are not Forumotion ads but FaceYourManga one. It is through these advertisements that they return on their investments and give us the right to use and copyright of their generator.
These ads are necessarily present on the page including all forums have removed Forumotion ads. Indeed, this page not under Forumotion ToS but under FaceYourManga ToS.

4. This partnership is under Beta Test and we cannot appreciate the suitability of this tool for the moment.
However, whatever happens, all avatars created via FaceYourManga and applied to a forum are automatically hosted by our servers (Impossible to lose them Very good )

First!
C'mon forumotion, we don't need things like this. Why don't you try what we suggest.

Ah, maybe this will be useful, i don't know...

Question, if the avatar image has been resized to 150x200, will the new avatar be resized?

Could we have an option to disallow the use of this feature through the ACP? I want to encourage creative and unique avatars on my forum, and would rather not have these avatars everywhere. People may still use them if they wish, I'd just rather not have a direct link right there.

There is an search engine update: link to your forum to a Google +1 page.

I have a google +1 page and I can't figure out what adding the link to the Admin Panel is supposed to do. When I added the link nothing happened to my google +1 page. So I removed the link from the admin panel and disabled the feature, and manually added my forum link to my google page. I just don't get what that google +1 feature is supposed to do. I'm not concerned about it really because I have my forum link verified in google webmaster tools search engine and Bing, and google +1 pages are not a big deal at all, most people are using twitter and facebook which I have my forum linked up to professionally. All the posts (new topics) my forum gets are automatically posted to twitter & facebook automatically with a return link to the topic.Search engines can pick up on those links too.

Not to cheapen forumotions update with google +1, but I feel google +1 pages are suffering from 'lack of interest' by the public. But it doesn't hurt to add your link to one.

Maybe you don't like it, but other people do. How do you know that Forumotion isn't already looking at making those kind of updates that you mentioned?

Looks like I made my previous post in the wrong topic, my apologies.

On this new Avatar maker feature, I disabled it because I never have liked those kind of graphics. They irritate me for some reason with the way they all look so cartoonist, but whatever floats your boat. Confused

Why i cannot click other choices for my avatar? it says

What does it mean?

You have to create an account (FaceYourManga) to get the other options. This option does not have the full library.
