Hi, i'm not new to the blogs and forums thing, and now that most of the commercial forums give the ability to use external avatars and profile pictures and siggies, i would like to know if i'm the only one interested to create a central place for such content...?!
i know gravatar is obsolete, too much problems, server freak out too much in heaven... favatar is similar...
due to the fact that wordpress is a growing community and largeband process, i think it is a good guess to evaluate that it would provide a lot of users for a new system for hosting avatars and so...
i'm ready to start it up. don't know the name yet, but i'm sure it will work, because we have a solid ground and a large display of faulted projects... we know what to not do... and i'm in the business for so long that i have a solid knowledge of it.
so for now, i would be happy to have your echoes, if you want to share... if someone wants to work on the project, i would be happy to take the names and add to my IM.
so here are the first lines for a start:
1- users register only with their username/email.
2- free hosting of avatar, profile pic, signature.
3- some paid extras, like image edition and rotating imgs
4- each user have a minimal profile page, that display the sigs etc with a little description.. can be used as an alternate profile searchable by google.
5- a large base of images for public avatars, with editable ones.
6- possible siggies generators, with countdowns and texts rotating, webring like structures too.
7- smilies generator
... not too much content, people tend to exagerate when it comes to content...
