Comment(by boonebgorges):

 I agree that it's awkward and non-standard to offer avatar upload before
 activation. However, taking the avatar upload step out of the signup
 process altogether will probably mean that far, far fewer users will
 upload avatars.

 Any votes for adding an avatar-upload step after activation? It could go
 right in the activation template.

 Something like hnla suggests (where a user can be redirected to a regular
 profile edit page or avatar upload page on the first login) would be even
 better in a sense, but harder to do. Is there any existing data we could
 use to detect first logins? When is last_activity first updated?
