To all GI people! Ideas and suggestions for GI!

Seeing how there are already users here who have already purchased Glavatars here, i see no way in how they can earn their coins back if we add in our own avatars (Ger80 and Lennert being a few examples.) The least that could be done is if we can choose which new Glavatars we would want to be added in the shop.

Or, we could just give back 70% of every GIvatar purchaser's GIPS spent on GIvatars, and then reduce the costs of all GIvatars and set avatar uploading at a reasonable price. I'm still against putting a price up for uploading an avatar. This whole GIvatar thing is sort of strange to me. In most forums I've visited, you're allowed to upload any avatar you want as long as it's not inappropriate.

To start with, GIvatars were to prevent people from uploading huge avatars, often animated avatars, that were slowing down the site. I could have prevent people from uploading avatars bigger than a certain size or resize automatically some, but I thought those size restrictions could turn some people down in uploading an avatar. GIvatars were then a simple way for everyone to easily pick an avatar.

I'll probably be adding a way to sell back bought most items for around 75-80% of the bought price. I also wanted to add special avatars when you reach certain levels. Every 5 levels, there could be a couple of special avatars. If you have ideas for a concept/theme of avatars for this, throw in your ideas!

If anything major happens with Givatars and they loose their value, I will make it possible for those with one to get 100% of their GIPS back

In my opinion, I don't see how automatic resizing/size restrictions would stop people from uploading an avatar if the option were available. Avatars can easily be cropped on your own using an image editor. Those who really want an avatar will find a way to make it work while fulfilling the size requirements. And how about all the people who don't want to upload animated .gifs? If someone just wanted to upload a picture of their dog for their avatar, there's no option for them to do that. What if there's someone who doesn't want to have to spend GIPS just to have a cool profile picture? Or maybe he doesn't like the limited GIvatar options. Whatever the case, I think we just need to create some more choices for avatars. Maybe this "every 5 levels there's a special upgrade" idea can be used for clans instead! It sounds like it would work well with the concept.

I think we need more new things in here. Or need more people if you will create something new... or whatever

It can't be that hard to make new GIvatars. But this option isn't completely clean either: what if you bought an avatar before the changes and now there is one that yo like more? You could say something like: "Then you should have waited for the new ones", but that wouldn't be fair, as there was no way to know that new avatars were going to be released.

I still don't like the idea of GIvatars. The simplest way to solve the problem would be to just refund the GIPs to people who bought one and let them upload their own image (with restrictions, of course).

thats nice to know, thx for that. also i understand the reasons, why you decided to make GIvatars (slowing down the page).

that is a good point, but baritone already said, that it would be possible to sell most shop items again. but still, if i would get like 75-80% for my current avatar, cause there would be a newer one i would like better, i would still lose about 80-125 Gips, which is pretty much here on GI. maybe a better solution for that would be, that if new avatars will be added, that it is possible to simply exchange an OLD avatar with a NEW avatar, if they cost the same (but you cant change an OLD for another OLD avatar). hope everyone understand what i mean
"When do you think people die? When they are shot through the heart by the bullet of a pistol? No. When they are ravaged by an incurable disease? No. When they drink a soup made from a poisonous mushroom!? No! It’s when… they are forgotten!"

I like the idea of every 5 levels new GIvatars cuz then at a certain point (like lvl30) you should have many and nice avatar's to choose from.
The 1st lvls should have just decent avatars but at high levels (lvl25-lvl30) lthere should be a lot of very nice avatars cuz all people who reached that level already did a lot on GI and it could be a nice gift from the site for those who have put all their effort in this site =3
It could also help with people getting a higher rank, so they can have use more nice avatar"s

I was thinking this from levels:
Level 1,2,3,4,5 ugly avatars
Level 6,7,8,9,10 aceptable
Level 11,12,13,14,15 nice
Level 16,17,18,19,20 cool
Level 21,23,24,25 very cool
Level 26,27,28,29,30 Uncomparable
Level 31,32,33,34,35 Awesome
Level 36,37,38,39 Epic
Level 40 U can upload your own avatar at the cost of 500 gips or if you want to upload avatars before level 40 u can pay 900 gips for uploading your own avatar.
I love burrito bison games :3
====================And HRC of course====================

Back when I added the Giavatars concept, I wanted Givatars sets to unlock as you level up. I just found it hard to decide which avatars would be cooler/better/more desirable so people find it worth reaching higher levels and get that new and better avatar.

I'm still very open in making this work. Reaching a certain very high level, around lvl 40 for example, the upload your avatar function could automatically unlock for those players. If we go this way, bought Givatars would be refund at 100%.
