    They should try and use photos from CDH users not stock photos in the web site. Just my two cents . . .

      Maybe it’s just me, but the implicit pressure to “conform” seems so antithetical to everything about CDH. As with nearly every topic or issue raised, each person has their own circumstances  and no one should be made to feel lesser by reason of their choice of avatar or whether they post photos. If this idea were to become the “rule,” I’d leave the site. I vote NO.

      Hmm maybe a contest? Users who are willing can submit pictures -they click a check box saying the site can use them as they wish, and then if selected for the site they also get a free month at their current membership level! 😉

      I understand the privacy issues and fear of being outed. I myself came here because i was tired of being ” in “. Everyones different, but ideally i like to be able to put a face to a name. Voice too, if possible.

      Jamie,

      Are you refering to photos used for every advert or subject heading being of perfectly formed honest to goodness females?  Perhaps they are a subtle reminder that we CDs need to try harder?

      These are the photos I am referring to. The aviators are fine. There are plenty of stock photo services that offer CD photos. I am also sure the lawyers could figure out how to get permission to use photos of CDH patrons if they want to contribute them.

      There are a few examples here:

      I voted Good even though I don’t like most of the stock avatars.

      Olivia is correct about the legalities. CDH can’t force members to submit a photo. So we’re stuck with stock avatars whenever a member doesn’t use a photo for their avatar.

      The stock avatar serves as a placeholder in the content database. If they didn’t have a placeholder, many profiles would look broken. It would be a bad design decision, and would probably create a lot of unnecessary support requests.

      Its been mentioned before and I do agree with you, but theres more than likely some legal blah blah reason for doing it this way.

      I WISH every girl would post at least one photo of herself to use as her avatar, so I would have a face to go with the name; but I understand the fear of being outed.
