#627 closed new feature (wontfix)

more interesting dummy avatars for non-public profiles

Reported by: lemon-head Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: Legacy Resolved
Component: BW Profile Keywords: avatar, non-public profile


Currently we simply show a boring white silhouette on grey background.

More funny would be:

  • agent green, agent black, agent orange, agent purple, all dressed in a monocolored trenchcoat.
  • maybe some cartoon animals?

With a bit more work we could also let people choose or upload a picture to be shown to non-members.

Great! Maybe we find talented people that could draw something like this for us? Or maybe we find nice scribblings in the net? Do you know ?

They have tons of great dock-icons there. Always the same motive but dressed differently:

I'd say hand-drawn.

Taking 3rd party pics will feel less original. Especially for people who know adium, they will always be reminded of this other software. No matter if they have a free license. At least for me, these pics have a brand value associated with adium (and I used adium maybe 2 or 3 times only).

Ok, I'm fine with new drawings. The only problem: Someone has to make them. I needed quite some time for the icons in the tour and not all liked them a lot ;) Really, I would love to get a personal illustrator for BeWelcome.

The icons in the tour looked really beautiful and professional, just I felt they don't communicate the message we want - or the message that I had in mind.

What I imagine is some hand-drawn and then scanned-in or photographed pictures. Maybe I find some minutes to do some myself. And then feel free to rip them apart, I will happily make new ones or let others try :)

But, don't take this as a promise!
