Personally, I'm for anything that increases active participation on the site, so displaying all members, and not just those with avatars, on the home page should make things more inclusive (a good thing). Conversely, it seems that members with avatars participate more frequently, and I definitely prefer the look of avatars as opposed to a troop of anonymous monkeycan icons. Maybe the home page should rotate the icons of audio evoites (evonians?) based on active participation? What do you all think?
