Since the website is very "avatar" directed, I thought was unnecessary, and a bit inconsistent the way the new navigation is currently. If you travel through the inspiration, users will see the avatar for sure, but within the nav area I think would be nice to keep consistent iconography.
Currently you have this happening: http://cl.ly/2t0u3e2O0A2L371r1D3b but the avatar seems blurry and might not add much value at that size. I would suggest this: http://cl.ly/3X1345382A3R1x2F1Z1t
Thank you Dribbble, for being an awesome site!

Yeah I'm with you, can always include your avatar in the drop down menu that the icon activates.
I agree. I think it would just make a little more sense... There is a good amount of avatars on the site, and inside the navigation, might become too much or even blurry at that size. Love Dribbble!

Agreed. I can't say I'm even a big fan of the Activity drop-down. I'm not sure if that's an annoying feature to have in the sidebar for people that are popular (personally, I think it could stand to be taller), but I like knowing right away what is going on. Both drop-downs having different colors and font-sizes throws me off too.
but I like my avatar :(
I like this idea and +1 for avatar in the drop down menu
Definitely agree with the avatar overload at times.
Yeah... would help for sure! Thanks Michelle!
I actually completely disagree with you. A picture of my avatar represents me much more than a gray, generic icon of a person. It gives a little personalization to the top bar, means the application cares that you are logged in, and that its YOU that you are clicking on (to view your profile, etc.)
One big reason for using the avatar (as opposed to showing the username) is those with multiple accounts will always immediately know which account they're logged in with.
Awesome! Definitely makes sense. I thought that it could either be displayed better, cause it might get too blurry and small, or maybe a badge of some sort. My whole thing was based on consistent appearance... everything is also either way, minor details. Thanks D.
