This seems new. If you select "Upload photo", you're sent here:

"Do not upload pictures containing *celebrities*, nudity, *artwork* or copyrighted images."

Celebrities, artwork? Sounds kinda stupid. Why shouldn't I be able to use my own artwork? Or my own face, if I'm a celebrity?

Furthermore, since I own the copyright to all my own images, that doesn't leave me with many choices... ;-)

I think we can still upload blank images, or text. Seriously, that avatar is very small, so it's fair use.
