  • Status changed from new to closed

BP-Default used to work like this, but for 1.5, we took it out of the registration flow (#2741). It didn't make much sense, as users could upload media to your site before they'd even verified their account.

Technically yes, they could. But that hardly matters considering the media wouldn't be public.

An alternative could be a Facebook-like flow, where user is prompted to upload a profile image (i.e. complete the profile) upon clicking the activation link. #4132

The image would be publicly accessible, if someone could figure out the URL.

*If* the user is already logged in on the post-activation screen, then that would be a better place to put the avatar upload option, yes. My main concern is allowing anonymous users to upload avatars.
