Yes, it is one of my new toys. :happy_purple:
Thank you for your opinion. But in my opinion it's no worse than having a bunch of people with the same default avatar conversing with each other.
Although that still might happen because it is random so you could potentially get the same avatar as someone else but less likely to happen.

Okay i changed it so that it's somewhere in the middle.
Caching random avatars. So that avatar changes less often, when it's able to use the cache it'll use the same avatar as before so it doesn't change from page to page, but when you refresh browser using reload, or clear browser cache, or if it's not able to use the cache then it'll get new avatars.
Caching is expiration is set to 365 days.
Happy with this change, as it's less constantly changing and still provide the benefit of having different avatars conversing.

I personally don't believe in this being good for google ranking. Because:
They may want faces ok. But not because they look nicer than default avatars but because they can trace them and build profiles.They can use their face recognition stuff for this. They will soon recognize that you use celebrities* pictures. They have nothing to do with the forum or GIMP. Besides i doubt if it is really nice towards people to use their pictures for avatars.
But anyways ... we can switch this stuff off in our forum settings. Which I did.

Great discovery of that option. That should make things a little faster for you too.
