Changing Default Avatar

#1
Is it possible for me to change the Default avatar to something really annoying, like a picture of me. That way my members will get fed up and change it to their own ??

The default avatars are stored in the styles/<style>/xenforo/avatars directory.

You can replace the existing small, medium and large avatars with your own.

I did ;)

Or create a new styles folder and change the setting in the ACP to point to that (which is recommended), which would prevent them being overwritten each time you upgrade.

Wouldn't get complicated if an update or addon includes images that go into the /styles/ folder?

Just copy them.

Exactly the same process if using a third party style which has its own directory.
