From reading thru the multiple requests for Confluence to add this feature, I'm assuming it is not part of the standard feature set, and I'll have to hack into something on the back end.
My specific case is, I have a user that no longer works here, they have set there avatar to something inappropriate, and we do want to retain the comments and docs this user has created over the years.
As mentioned above by Eduard, it is not possible to do it with an out of the box Confluence installation. However we do have an improvement request in our tracking system here:
Please vote on it and address your concern directly into it. Hope it clarifies.
Install SU plugin for Confluence, switch to that user, change the avatar.
On another note - if the user no longer works at your place, what's wrong with changing the password and going under their name? Or is the user disabled? If so, SU won't help you - you will need to activate the user while you are changing their avatar.
