    Reading very old conversations in Chrons and it seems members used to have like little aliens that (I think) were part of your profile.
    When and why was this discontinued?

    Thanks

    They were a feature of ASciFi (another older forum that was merged with Chronicles over 10 years ago.) You received more alien heads based on your number of posts, so it was an incentive to post more. The alien head was something that the website owner paid a graphic designer to create, and I'm not sure that the design was included when Brian bought the forum from him. In any case it was discontinued since it was a hack of the vBulletin forum software in use then. It probably wouldn't be compatible with the present XenForo software. Members did love the aliens though, and even gave each one a name as they received them.
