Forum avatars not appearing for certain users

So, uh, have realized something that's a little odd;

This is what I got when I checked the forum profile of the EN Newspaper Reporter tweezers:


And this is what I got when I checked the forum profile of the EN Newspaper Reporter Remaine:


Both tweezers and Remaine are Newspaper Reporters, both belong to the same group on the forum, but for some reason, tweezers has an avatar while Remaine doesn't, and I'm a little confused.

Also, I checked the page on the Wiki for Reporters and the list of EN reporters was missing some Reporters

For example, it's missing Night-Sisters (who, coincidentally, also doesn't have an avatar) even though the forum profile says that they're a "ForumNewspaperModeratorEN" and the same goes for hogree and conanthedestroyer

So, erm, is this something that's only me or do you all have this, and is it a bug or is it on purpose?

Hello! This is done on purpose. Remaine has either resigned or has taken leave (Not sure, I must enquire). So, he has not got any avatar. So, he is now in temporary leave state. Our TO Newspaper team has got a special feature such that, it allows the former TO newspaper reporters to act as "Guest writers". Ie., they aren't compelled to write one, but they can write one, for any issue IF they can. The above said Remaine was a reporter. But, right now he is in an inactive state (Ie., he doesn't write anymore). So, the administration has decided to take away his avatar, but he has still got the group as he can write articles IF HE WANTS TO.


The same happens with candidates. They aren't given the avatars, but they are given the group. ;) Hope you understood me! :D
