Based on a suggestion from T.V., in a comment on an earlier post, does anyone have ideas on how we could add avatars to a comment section?
The idea is to turn WB into a masked ball in which commenters could choose among avatars, as they would among masks for carnival. If that could be made to work, perhaps we could invite famous funders and financial professionals to come as doxies and knaves, or saints and minor gods for that matter, and consort with one another anonymously here in Wealth Bondage, as in some Aubrey Beardesly fantasy, or as in a real masked ball or Carnival. "If you want a man to tell you the truth, give him a mask." You might go to sleep with Dick Minim and awaken in the arms of Karl Rove.
We might be able to bring off the social dynamics if someone knows how to get an avatar function to work. (I visualize "registering" to give comments, join the party, or be a member of wealth bondage in good standing. You could during registration pick from avatars whose bios are given. Advanced users could create their own. Ideally, the site would recognize you when you return and let you sign in easily as "your fictional character." If someone has the technical panache to bring this off, I could find a few dollars to compensate them for their time. Nobody should labor in Wealth Bondage without remuneration.)
