Comment (by hnla):

 >bp_core_avatar_template_check. I don't think we should do this. Throwing
 PHP Notices for user feedback is lousy. I recall someone saying this
 somewhere already, but I can't find it on the Trac ticket -- maybe it was
 on Slack? Not sure.

  >>Ok. I was simply trying to help theme authors to update their
 templates. I really don't mind removing it.

 @DJPaul You may be thinking of a slack mini discussion a while back where
 I posed the notion that we could perhaps start doing something interesting
 with version stamping templates  as a means to being able to check for
 outdated templates, where there had been template updates. I recall
 vaguely throwing up notices not being favoured, but in general the kernel
 of the idea had some merit to be perhaps explored. I also discussed at
 WCLDN with imath.

 Not sure that this is what `bp_core_avatar_template_check` refers to but I
 wouldn't chuck the idea out completely just yet and we do have precedence
 for posting notices as we do so if BP pages become disassociated.
