Anime-Planet has many default images that are used when we're missing content. For example, user avatars, default anime and manga covers, and more. As a follow-up to our new brand launch, we've been slowly designing new replacements for these default images that fit our style and theme. Today we're announcing the first set of defaults: user avatars! Going along with the space theme that you see on the homepage, and our Planet-kun mascot, the avatars have a similar cosmic personality: There are three avatar colors. Any user who doesn't have an avatar receives a randomly colored mascot based on their internal user ID, which isn't changeable. These default avatars appear anywhere you'd see their avatar**, such as comments, a review's avatar for the author, etc. **Note: currently, these avatars aren't synced into the forum. We're working on a fix for that. We've made major progress on most of the other defaults, and should have announcements for those over the next few months. Thanks, as always, for your support of Anime-Planet. We hope you like these new default user avatars, and that they brighten up pages that didn't have any before!
