Design your Mobotnik avatar (new advanced features)

Design your Mobotnik avatar (new advanced features)

Bumping with an UPDATE: If you are a regular Mobotnik commenter, you can access the new premium avatar features which we've been calling "project moustache." Mobotiks with 50 or more comments can wear a bow tie - because bow ties are cool. Make over 100 or 500 comments and you can choose from various sunglasses for your avatar. Make a thousand posts and you can don a sexy moustache, or a combination of all the above.

Original post:

This is just a quick post with a bit of housekeeping for the Mobotniks! For those of you participating in the discussion forums (links to phones, networks and platforms up at the top of the page), or even leaving comments on the blog articles, you can custom build your own avatar in your account settings. Firstly, register a new account if you don't already have one, or just sign in with your HUKD username and password at the top right.

Then go to the avatar builder page, and have a fiddle with the mobot shapes and colours there. Choose your favourite combination, and click save. Your avatar will then be shown any time you leave a comment on the site. Right now, it's pretty basic, with a choice of about 21 various combinations of body and colour. But we will be prettying this feature up in the future, with a lot more choice for your avatar.
