Do people HAVE to add an image to their user profile?

I start with user profiles and have the impression that you have to use an image with a profile. Is that right? If so, can we have an option to only use name and email? An image is an extra hurdle I dont’t want. Name and email is all I need.

I don’t believe you’re forced to have an image, other people correct me if I’m wrong.

If users don’t have image, their “image” is set to the initial letter of their name, right?

Btw: I am playing around a bit and love the user profiles, thanks @Mark @david and the rest of the team!

User profiles does require that you select an image column, but no, your app does not require that they UPLOAD an image.
