Well, this is a good point. I agree that every now and then, you need to take a step back and realize that you've come a long way from where you started. And then you need to get back onto the wagon so that you don't lose the motivation to keep going.
Ripped guys with really hot pictures keep me motivated to keep trying. Maybe your default avatar should have more distinction from the "No Picture" avatar so that it's easy to focus in on the really good profiles -- perhaps a different color?
Ripped guys have always been my motivation to keep going; but I always take time to look at the progress I've made so far...especially on those days when I feel like it's just not happening.
I thought about inverting the colors to make the avatar more distinct, but I also realize that most people tend to click on the "no photos" profiles just to see if they have any profile info filled out. It's more like a surprise thing for those who don't already know me here...especially when it shows up on the main page under the "ONLINE NOW AND VERIFIED" section. That'll confuse people and make them even more likely to click it.
Of course, I'll only leave this as my main pic till I take another self-pic...seem to be on a roll lately with that.
