I have given it some thought I still don't think anything needs to bedone to prevent dupes. Is it really that hard to look at a nameinstead of a picture?
Even if wedid do it, what happens to people without avatars an no picture toidentify them with? Do we now force everyone to have them? The cycle never ends.
I really think the problem will weed itself out. Right now allthe dupe avatars are people who have not posted very much (yet). As people post more, they tend to want to define their identity andmake themselves unique (avatars, titles, signatures, etc...). Iguess what I am saying is lets address the problem when the top 50posters are using the same avatar and not the people just startingout. I think once they hang out for a while and see their"identity" is shared by someone else, they will get their own.
EDIT ~ I think the best thing to do is for me to just put up moreavatars. I already have a bunch that people have sent me andgoogle images has tons to choose from. It's around 118 now...maybe in the next few weeks I can get it to 200.GaggedUtopia38673.0369907407
