Anyone who had a Snooth account and didnt upload an image was given the default 'two glasses' logo until yesterday when we started issuing a few alternatives.
We weren't expecting them to be so popular - dont forget we actually want you to upload images of your own choice. We may have to instigate a rule. Anyone caught removing previously uploaded images to ensure they get the thimble, for example, instead gets a Dick Cheney image for 1 month!
Next time, we're finding a crappier illustrator...

And what's the punishment for uploading one of the site's images? ;^>

What's to stop a user from downloading a thimble image from the site and uploading it as their own? I could engineer a workaround, but jeez.
I think we could provide "premium" avatars for being a super-reviewer or something. If facebook can sell those stupid gifts for $1, there's probably some mindblowingly stupid crap that we could do to encourage more detailed reviews.
