I expect someone’s suggested this in the past, but how about limiting people to a smaller part of the site until they’ve uploaded an avatar? You’d then have guests, no avatar, avatar, supporters and admin but I don’t know if the system you’re using makes that simple to implement.

What do you think though about people who use an irrelevant avatar (including me at present!). If people could get fuller access by uploading anything at all as an avatar, does that achieve what you want? It demonstrates that the person has bothered having a go. It might say something about their personality. It helps tell people apart. But what if it doesn’t really say anything about the person at all?
