    I wonder if the forum software would allow the upload of avatars or images by email ?

    Why ? Because of I'm often use iPad and it would be helpfull if I can send the files direct from the iPad

    How ? I like the SmugMug-way: create a generic email like username@album.macrumors.com or
    Username@avatar.macrumors.com and protect with a password in the subject of the email. The password is predefined in each users profile.

    That would make life much easier.

    (or at least allow unusual character in upload link like # : = or even kanjis. )

    Is uploading to an image hosting website such as Photobucket, ImageShack®, TinyPic etc. and uploading your avatar from there not a viable possibility for iPad users?

    Yes; could be. But I also to try to reduce the number of services to control/monitor/having access too.
