Hello,

The old email address that we used to receive new avatars is now so overrun by spam as to be pretty useless.

So, from now on, please send any pictures you would like to use for your detective avatar to this address:
sleuth.avatars@gmail.com

The rules:
1) This offer is only open to current subscribers.
2) Portrait photos only. No cartoons, illustrations, full body shots, etc.
3) Try to stick with the style of the game.
4) We reserve the right to refuse to post avatar images for any reason. The most common reasons we refuse are:

It can take up to six weeks to turn around avatars, so please don't freak out if you don't hear back right away.

If you sent an avatar to the old address that has not yet been posted, please resend it to this address.

Thank you! (And thanks to the volunteer avatar wranglers who help get these prepared and posted).

I had to wait about 3-4 months for BOTH of my detectives Clift.

I for one would like to thank the lovely staff who have given us the option of our own personal avatars.

I am okay with waiting for mine.

Just to chime in here,

I think SS put it perfectly"

It's not part of the subscription!

I don't honestly remember how long I waited for any of mine, but do remeber that I wasn't worried about it, the game has so much more to offer than me seeing a custom avatar

I'm gonna jump in here and say what I think.

Even though what everyone said does make sense, and gave their very valid and reasonable arguments, everyone who said it already has their own custom avatar.

It is easier to say that when you've already got it you see.

I think Clint has made some very valid points and some hillarious ones in his previous posts.

To someone who doesn't have his custom avatar, it seems more like a right of passage than anything else. As in, real, old genuine members of the community all have them... and those that don't are known for not having them they're so few.

You guys are all immediately recognisable without having to read your name.

I honestly didn't know it was a free service, I though it was an entitlement, but as you put it, and seeing that it is free ONLY if you're subbed, I won't complain -don't think I ever really did to begin with.

Yet, I do promise to be VERY thankful when it does come through, as I am right now.

In this game we have one Sleuth God who is able to do the final magic to make avatars come alive. He is known under many names, and I do think you understand who I mean.
Then we have a number of servants, and Secret Squirrel is one of them, who probably pay their subscriptions as all our others do, as well as serve the community with their spare time to improve the experience for all of us.
When we had wanted the avatar changing process to go faster, there is therefore two parties to target. The Servant, or the Sleuth God.
I think we all recognize that the reason for the delay in the process have very little to do with the Servant. But then, who dares to target the Sleuth God? Because what evil could happen if the Sleuth God goes mad? He is allmighty, and we are everyone so dependent on him offering us a game that actually stay online...
So perhaps the best thing we can do are waiting patiently?
- and try to remember that even though the Servant showes up faithfully, he is still just a Servant and not responsible for the actions (or the lack of actions) from the Sleuth God.
- and besides, what I have seen of the work the Servant have done, I do think he is doing a wonderful job.

Understand what you are saying Clift....you're right, we do already have our custom avater BUT, we had to put a request in just like everyone else, and we waited just like everyone else. :)

One thing I think you mention Clift is that you think your sub will run out before your avatar is uploaded, am I right? Anyway someone may want to correct me if I'm wrong but I think as long as you were subbed when you submitted it you will have it uploaded....eventually :) I'm sure I've seen others uploaded that were unsubbed by the time it went up.

Oh and I agree with you that I was impatient for my avatar to go up when I was waiting however I also never complained about it because at the end of the day it didn't affect my game play :)

Maybe I should have gotten off my ass when I was subbed and tried to get myself an image. Bu! Once again! I CBF-ed! :D

A word of advise, don't write on message boards when you're in a very bad mood. I also neglected to keep in mind that this does not come with the subscription, and now I feel stupid.

There's a saying, today's privileges are tomarrow's rights. Today's rights were yesterday's privileges.
