Embarrassed to still have a pumpkin on your profile pic this long after Halloween? Have fond memories of your old Team Gwen flair? Tired of flaunting the Patreon logo every time you post?
More choices of flair images for members (Trust Level 2) and CUSTOM FLAIR IMAGES for regulars (Trust Level 3)!
“Wut?” you ask. Let me explain:
Anyone here who’s reached Trust Level 2 or above can choose from some pre-selected flair images by choosing one of the new “TL2” groups on the Groups page. When you join the group, the image shown will automagically be displayed over the right lower corner of your avatar.
If you’ve reached Trust Level 3, in addition to choosing one of the TL2 images, you can request a CUSTOM flair image be created just for you! Just post your image in a message (and tag the
@moderatorsgroup) – we’ll review it, then tweak the image as required to make it work … and voila! Your own custom avatar flair!*
Please note: this feature is implemented via Groups – specifically, the flair image displayed is the one associated with a user’s “Primary Group.” Discourse can be a little weird about which group is primary – so if something doesn’t work as you expect, message a mod and we’ll fix it for you. (Currently, there’s no way for users to choose their own primary group.)
* we reserve the right to reject images that are unacceptable, just as we do with profile pics in general
