when i visit C or any other section, i see those scrap pictures in the boxes of the persons who don't have their pics uploaded. it always give me feel that website is not loaded properly, so i again refresh it. i am old user of daniweb, so that's why i know it is not any problem, but new user will never get that thing.

Also, those default scrap type image is not looking good to eyes at all. there should be any defualt image or there should be any solution of that thing. it is my opinion, may be it is okay with other people. thanks. :)

  • The default images are similar to the ones used on quite a lot of other forums that are like DaniWeb (i.e. MSDN form), I think they're used to avoid confusion if new user's have used other forums before. Read More

  • If we just used the daniweb logo as the default avatar then at a glance it would look like all the default posts were by the same person. As I understand it, the current default avatars are generated based on the username so each default avatar is unique. Read More

may be, but is it looking good to eyes ? it's okay if you all are ok with it. :) but it will make big difference in apperance if we have some daniweb logo at place of that image , because it will give us a nice feel while using DW. it's my opinion, else you know better :-) thanks.

They use Gravatar, so they're generated based on email address. The exact same auto-generated image is used on every forum/commenting site that uses gravatar, and every individual's is unique. That means that even if you haven't uploaded an avatar, your default Gravatar follows you around the web.
