Comment (by webcommsat):

 I would make two further suggestions to avoid the word 'here' which can
 cause confusion for accessibility and expectation.

 From my understanding of what will happen, suggest revising the text to:
 'In this area [use name if it has one], you can choose to display avatars
 of users who interact with the site.'

 > Throwing my two cents in: I think this is both specific and broad enough
 to be fit for purpose.
 >  An avatar is an image that can be associated with a user across
 multiple websites. Here, you can enable the display of avatars for users
 who interact with this site.
 > - "image":
 >   - Implies "visual". ✅
 >   - Could be a photo. ✅
 >   - Could be a logo. ✅
 >   - Could be a cat. 😸
 >   - "visual representation" could mean an animated character - Think
 game console profiles.
 >   - In my experience, "visual representation" is not accessible
 language, and often needs further, specific explanation.
 >   - "image", on the other hand, is widely understood, second only to
 something like "pic" in English.
 > - "can be"
 >   - Acknowledges that the user may not use it on other websites. ✅
 >     - The avatar is associated with an email address that the user may
 only use on this website.
 >     - The site owner doesn't need to know that it's associated with the
 user's email address.
 >   - Acknowledges that other websites used by the user may not have
 avatars enabled. ✅
 >   - Acknowledges Gravatar's copy: "You choose what to display on
 Gravatar-enabled sites: what you share on your profile is open to the
 world." ✅
 > - "associated":
 >   - Accounts for an avatar that represents the user. ✅
 >   - Accounts for an avatar that represents the user's group (company,
 department, gaming clan). ✅
 >   - Accounts for an avatar that represents nothing. ✅
 >   - Accounts for default avatars. ✅
 > - "users who interact with this site"
 >   - Does not differentiate between registered users and other visitors.
 ❓ - Is this correct?
 >   - Does not assume the species of the user. ✅
 >     - Democratising publishing means we welcome our inter-galactic
 visitors. 👽
 > - Does not presume to know where the avatar will be used on the website.
