Ok...so after days of tinkering with this I have enabled the custom avi option for all members...
Now when you go to choose an avatar, you should see an option at the bottom to link to a custom avatar. Slight hiccup is that once you change your avatar to a custom one if you try and change it again you get an error message as the board redirects to the image instead of the avatar panel. I figured out a workaround by going through the admin portal and doing some url shenanigans to get back to the panel and change them but it seems only I can do that and the change be permanent.
Anyways so yeah if you want to change a custom avatar after the fact you are going to have to pm me so I can either set you to a default avi so you can get back into the panel or I set the new custom avi myself. I don't see any other workaround till I hear from Sam so please be patient with change requests. I can't be on ES all the time and the mods are unable to do this.
Also be smart, abusive/racist/just plain dumb avatars will put you at risk for a ban and I'm not about to just pull the feature because of knuckleheads trying to be cute.
Also I had tried having the avy size be 100x100 but seems it was knocked down back to 60x60 by Sam I guess.
Anyways I know a lot of changes have come down but I should be out of you guys' hair other than regular admin stuff

What up with my avatar? I changed it from Einstein to Udjat? What gives/ It showed up for about 10mins.
edit: now the correct one is back. It keeps changing.
