Subscribed players can submit their picture to be used as an avatar. Please go to city hall "submitting content to sleuth" for details on how and where to submit. Avatar changes are however a freebie donated by the sleuth team and community volunteers. Reason why it is for subscribed people only is because too many avatars were received to keep up.

The process:
1. People submit avatars which all end up on the sleuth mail server.
2. Once in a while volunteers (Secret Squirrel and myself) pick up the avatars, and get to work if there are more then 5 avatars that we can approve.
3. We approve, and "sleutherize" the pictures. This is a process I won't bore you with.
4. We send the approved and sleuthererized avatars to Ben.
5. We post in this thread who's pictures have ben sent for upload.
6. Ben uploads, and they are live.

There is no need to keep submitting your avatar if you don't hear anything. Avatars sending is as reliable as email is. And we don't log in daily, hence why we are not answering you. There is no need to PM us either as to when we are going to do them. We will get to them, when we have time. If you PM us, that's exactly what we'll tell you. Just keep your eye on this thread.

Avatars that didn't get approved will receive email as to why, and with instructions how to fix the problem. They can them make the next batch.

Common reasons for rejection:
It is already an avatar submitted by someone else in Sleuth. It is not a picture of a person, ie. cartoons, drawn pictures, animals, objects.
Extreme poor quality (too poor to even be properly visual), Pictures that may create offence, copy righted pictures, people submit an avatar for someone else, and want it to show up without that other persons knowledge or permission, not adding the detective name to which they like the avatar to be added, other pictures that are for some reason not in line with the many avatars we already see in this game.

uhm... WOW. just wow!

Crunchpatty! You are like so psychic man!

That's what I wear when I am cooking up trouble. Fear my kitchen prowess! Kitchen towels keep my hair from 'poofing', I suppose a dinner napkins would work too though.

But so as to not disapoint: thanks to crunchpatty for solving the mystery of the disappearing hairline...and self-esteem...and pizza crusts!

Thank you so much!

Sorry Briana. I didn't have it. I did give everyone chance to re-submit just in case I lost any. Other people took advantage of this. To save you flicking back through this thread to a few days ago...

Ok folks this is the list that was going to Ben tonight, but I do notice that I haven't got Tana Danat's or Miss Briana's, so I will wait til tomorrow. Now make sure you actually attach the attachment *coughs* AND that you include your detective's name in the SUBJECT of the email :s (otherwise it goes south with all of Ben's viagara emails.)

Hi everybody,

Okies this is the batch sent to Ben.

Apologies to anyone who missed out, got left off etc etc I did leave the last list up for a while so people could get back to me and re-submit or check to see what happened to their avatar in the first place.


So I think we did as much as we could to accommodate those people who tried (and then tried again) to submit an avatar this time round.

It's not a perfect system, but for the most part it works pretty well.

Please feel free to re-submit and it'll go up in the next batch.

Sorry it didn't happen this time.

Happy Sleuthing.

Many, many thanks to Squirrel for all the time he spends uploading and sleutherizing all the submitted avatars. I'm sure he can think of one or two, maybe even three, things he would rather be doing with his free time.


Thanks darling!

I feel like such an idiot. I go to city hall and can't find the "submitting content for sleuth" section in order to send in a new avatar pic for myself. Please can someone help? I'm not normally this clueless, I promise.
