Default stock avatars.

I know that now we can't use pictures showing people's faces, if they're not famous. many of the pictures that me & a lot of other members use are stock photos with models. so what if the models aren't famous? Does that mean that we still can't use their pictures? I'm not sure what to think about that, because I know that a lot of the stock photos on icon supplying websites are taken from photographers' flickr pages. can we use stock avatars showing models' faces if we credit the photographer?

Yes, I think it's fine as long as you didn't take the pic of as a friend or something. But pics with models from iconator and stuff I think will be fine.

There is no way for us to verify that pictures of non celebrities aren't in fact people you know that you've added a border to or other personalization to make it look like a "stock" avatar. So this is not allowed. If your avatar shows a face it MUST be of a celebrity who has a profile on www.imdb.com.

Absolutely NOT: Things deemed to be totally unacceptable:

* Posting Personal Pictures (or pictures of friends, family, etc, anyone who is not a celebrity)
*NOTE: A person is considered a "celebrity" if they have a profile on www.imdb.com.
"Stock" avatars of people and avatars containing people who are "site models" who do not have a profile on www.imdb.com are not allowed.

There are PLENTY of non "people" and other kinds of pictures and avatars out there for use
