    Thank you for welcoming and replying :) That's a lot of threads to search in, let me be specific, I just want to know: Whether the Avatar should be a real photo or not?

    Thank you

    No, it must not be a real photo (*). Just look at the avatar of other users: there are images of all kinds, like drawings, photos of children, letters of Arabic alphabets, etc. You only have to avoid obscene or offensive images.

    (*) I mean: it should not necessarily be a real photo, but it may be that.

    Sure, that's why I wrote ''it must not be'' : of course it can/may be. You probably understood 'it must not be' like 'it is not allowed to be', but I did not mean that: I meant 'it is not obligatory'. Sorry for confusion.

    Just to clarify, @siares interpreted the English correctly, that’s how ‘must’ must be interpreted in English in this case.

    I already apologised for the confusion. Will I be at all forgiven for my mistake?:oops:

    Why don't you simply choose a photo/image that is not inflammatory, vulgar or rude and post it?
    If we think it does not comply with the WR rules we will get in touch with you :)
