There are two common requests that we can tackle simultaneously. The first is that people want to submit their own picture to use as their detective's avatar. The second is that there are not enough different suspect pictures.

So, if you would like to submit your own picture, I can set that as your avatar. In exchange, I would like to add those pictures to the pool of possible suspect pics. I'll set it up so that nobody else will be able to use your picture for their detective, but your face will make appearances in the various cases in the game.

I don't want to automate the process because then people will upload all kinds of junk that would detract from the game.

So, if you are interested, send in a photo of yourself to
ben@hypotheticalsoftware.com
I'll take care of the cropping, resizing and desaturating. By sending in photos, you are granting permission for use in this game.

That's what I'm saying. Send in your photo, and I'll set that as your new avatar. Considering the number of times people asked me about this, over the course of Beta, I'm surprised at how few of you have taken me up on the offer, thus far.

It may be because you said you would use the photo in the game as well.. but I'm just guessing

What are the rules? I'm guessing some players, like myself, don't want to put a real photo of themselves. Or they can't find a suitable one.

Are we allowed to send in photos we find on the Internet?

If it's from the internet, send in the source URL with the photo. That way I can make a reasonable assessment whether using here would violate copyright laws.

I sent one in, didn't give my name. So if it's a boyish looking girl with glasses, that's me.

Just sent mine in; thanks for doing this. I've been playing for a few days now, and the limited avatar selection has been the only thing that I thought could use some improvement. Problem solved; keep up the good work! :)
