While we're at it, we should add a token for inserting a group avatar, as well.

We're closing this ticket because it has not received any contribution or comments for at least two years. We have decided that it is better to close tickets that are good ideas, which have not gotten (or are unlikely to get) contributions, rather than keep things open indefinitely. This will help us share a more realistic roadmap for BuddyPress with you.

Everyone very much appreciates the time and effort that you spent sharing your idea with us. On behalf of the entire BuddyPress team, thank you.

If you feel strongly that this enhancement should still be added to BuddyPress, and you are able to contribute effort towards it, we encourage you to re-open the ticket, or start a discussion about it in our Slack channel. Please consider that time has proven that good ideas without contributions do not get built.

One of the best ideas to implement is closed?
We try to get an avatar into bp-emails for half a year now.

It is just that nobody answered/helped us with this issue:

This is still a great idea to insert avatars - this makes bp more alive and interesting.
Nowadays nobody wants to read a name which he maybe doesn't know.
Much more likely users want to see a picture of the one who contacted them.

If you could implement such a feature (the token "{{recipient.avatar}}") or better - make it as a standard, so that every bp-user has an advantage through that.

Thank you,
