That’s honestly a bit shallow and dodgy answer. Kind of corporate speak. What ways are there to “explore”? Custom forum avatars is something that discourse forum system easily allows, and is something commonly seen in pretty much any other forum out there. Not something groundbreaking that needs to be explored or researched.
I sense some legal issues in regards to Epic’s responsibility for the digital content on the site they are hosting, but honestly as long as we can attach images to our posts, which we can, then this doesn’t seem to be a real obstacle anyway.
