A member could have a thousand posts - but not one of those posts could make any sense - and that user would be feeding his pics of Daves servers for no real contribution to this place. Anyone can reply with "lolz!" to every post in a topic. But atleast Dave, you would have a handle over who is staff and who isn't - thus ultimately being able to control who has the privilege of having a Custom Avatar.
Yeah - Basically I was being silly - I have a Forum too and I realise the problems of doing such a thing if it were on such a scale as this (I have Custom Avatars enabled all the way through but I only have 9 Members!).
Maybe if I ever become a Moderator!
That would be so funny!
