since botb saves all the avatars anyway, why not make them accessable at least for the uploader?
idk ... /barracks/Avatars/
a list of all avatars + upload date maybe?

edit: even better would be an option to select an old avatar and set it as default again without actually uploading it again (mayb still costs boons but saves botb-serverspace)

"includes discord benefits"

In botb 3.0 not only can you buy your way out of accidentally favoriting your own tracks. But you can also by your way back into the discord

there should now be an avatar link on profiles if the botbr has more than 1 avatar so we can see their avatar history

it'll be a bit more work to allow botbrs to reuse old avatars

should that action cost a negligible amount of boons/nubs?

Definitely should cost some boons to prevent avatar change spam imo, and to keep to.. value of an avatar change, more a game mechanic thinking but I think it is relevent

you cant link directly to the page btw, unlike the other profile tabs..

this is a very cool thing tho, thanks for adding it!!
i noticed a deadlink avatar on razereks profile, might be good to just exclude 404-avatars (not sure how much work that is tho)

also not sure how much work it is to put the date, when the avatar was uploaded, to the page. if reusing avatars is allowed, it would need an extra note "reused Oct 31 2020" as well i guess.

im just brainstorming additional things here, the main thing i wanted is there, so thats cool.

i agree with castlenes about the pricing

this is awesome :)

thoughts about cost: maybe half the original price to change back to an avatar? (so, half the size in kb)

it wouldn't make sense to be any more than the size in kb, since then you could just download and reupload manually :P

and i like the idea of the original upload date being shown, maybe as hover text on each image?

hacky, and generally not worth the effort, but if you REALLY want to know the upload date of one of the avatars, you can fetch it with wget and (at least on my system) that'll preserve the file time from the server. :P

for example, this classic from Chip Champion:
