I had an idea about how to encourage authors/members who didn’t upload their author photo yet and I wanted to run it past you to see what you think?
Right now, if an author didn’t upload their photo, it doesn’t show up, but if they upload their extended bio or they use the new EzineArticles Inbox system, it shows up a “Author Photo Not Available Yet” image like the one here on the right. —>
What I’m proposing: Make the missing photo into a link that pops up a form where anyone could encourage the author to log in and upload their author photo. My thinking is that if authors knew how much their readers wanted to see their author photo, they would prioritize the uploading of their photo.
The argument against my idea is that I don’t want our members who have decided to never upload an author photo to be nailed with potentially dozens of emails from users and other members who want to encourage them to upload their author photo (while being totally unaware that the member has no intention to ever do it).
