    The new ones are shit and they don't fit in to be honest. Please bring back the old good ones.

    Between insane and insecure
    Going to give a +1 as well. The new ones are just bad.

    Something tells me the server software update changed them, and that it was unintentional.

    I think the new ones are better, as it's easier to tell at first glance a new/noob member (who usually use the default avatars) from a longer time member (who would have their own avatar) since the new ones are grey, instead of colourful.

    The old ones were nicer-looking though.

    Earth, bro-dude.
    Maybe there could be a way to choose your default avatar? An O.G. set and a Neo set?

    Once someone cares enough to make a choice, they'll probably be uploading their own avatar though.

    Maybe. I only chose/edited this because I couldn't think of a better avatar. And it reminds me of those '90's McDonald's commercials. Otherwise, I would have kept the default avatar. I liked how plain it looked. The newer default avatar wasn't my style. Maybe it's good for some, but not me.

    Maybe gbatemp should have another contest: create 3-8 new default avatars and win a Nintendo Switch game. The game would be 1-2 Switch. Because you helped the temp Switch avatars.

    I think they meant like the all users can choose which avatar shows as default for users without avatars
