Alright I have been toying with the idea of changing my Avatar to something else this new change that I'm thinking of doing would be the third avatar that I have put up since I have been here. So my question to you is how orten do you change your cute little avatar and why? Thank you ahead of time.

How often do I change my avatar? Well, I had thought about this in the very beginning. Seeing as to how I'm memory challenged, especially for routine stuff, I decided that my avatar should be of the simplest to deal with. So I searched high and low, far and wide and came up with this one that has already been potty trained. So I don't have to change my avatar.

LOL, that is great you have it potty trained. I don't have the patience to potty train my avatar. All my patience is spent on my daughters and sons. LOL!!! I'll see you in the lounge have a nice night.!

Hi, darlings! Guy, your avatar so fits you! It is a big sexy beast, is it not? And Bella, yours is so charming and sweet - also very fitting for you. If I had the capability on my computer, I would put my own smiling face out there, although it would take a gazillion pictures before I could find one I liked - I'm NOT photogenic -. I love it when the avatars are photos of the users! Sigh...

Thanks Nova I was thinking of keeping the same characters but a different saying and cartoon thingy.I can't believe that tomorrow is already friday. wow. I need to get some sleep.. I love your pic. Nova it's cute. Do you know that you can go to photobucket and and download pictures and then upload them to here. That is if you want a change.

Mostly, once in a 3 months. If I found a good and beautiful avatar, I will remove the older one and change it to a new one. Sometimes, I am the one who make it through my photoshop.

My avatar is really me. I couldn't figure out how to get one before goodnightmoon provided instructions. When y'all get sick of looking at ME, let me know LOL and I'll put something else up. You might wish you hadn't said anything. :-p

I don't think we'll get sick of looking at you, I just like to change things up a little every once in a while and was thinking what does everyone else do. So I asked .. Thanks for responding.

I have never changed my avatar since i've been here! It confuses me when people change their avatars if they have a name that i dont easily remember lol. I get confused easily! Ask adonaih, she knows all about it apparently! lol. I hope you find something you like and maybe i will someday consider changing mine if i find something else that suits my fancy lol. I never thought i'd EVER use that expression but i think i've used it twice this week on mylot now. HAHA bye bye bella :)

Sissygrl, I know what you mean some people I know instantly by name other I know by their cute avatar. I think that if I change it you might not be that confused because I'm keeping the same cartoonish characters. Just a different pic of them. I love then they are funny and cute and so me. And I know what you mean about sayings that you never thought you'd say but end up saying. I'm like that with Tickle my Fancy and I have a saying when something was just way wrong I say no how many shade of wrong was that. I actually ended up having a friend from work start saying it even though it drove her mad. LOL!!! I hope when I change it that you won't be confused. Have a nice night.

I have been a member of mylot for 5 months now. I have never changed my avatar. It is a picture of me in New York City. I am not sure if I will ever change it. I just recently changed my Associated Content one though, but I had one of theirs because for some reason my own pictures would never load. This time it finally did. I used a different picture for that one though. I hate default avatars.

I'm with you default avatars for some reason get to me I have to be me so I have to put something that reflects me and my personality hence the two little guy drawn by Jeff Thompson. I love these little guys because they are so cute and funny and they reflect me at times.I think that I'll probably change it up but will [robably stay with the same guys. Thank you for your response.

It's always nice to have something new for a change, sometimes we get used of the same old things. I for one do change my avatar here, but not that often. I believe I've changed it four times already, but I always go back from what other members and friends used to see in me. But now, I guess this previous change will again be for a long time since it is the same "tonberry king" I used to have. The onlu change is, it now is positioned differently and with different movements..

Nice I love the Tonberry King it's cute and I loved the final fantasy games. they were very fun but I have to say VII and VIII were the best.

See that is what I'm afriad of that if I change the avatar to drastically that no one will figure out it's me, but I also like a change every once in a while and I think that even if I change my avatar I'll be using the same characters. My very first avatar had the ghost who is pursing his lips holding out his arms saying "I'll just pretend to hug you until you get here." But I was thinking of changing to the gummy bear one.

I am not a very big fan of change. Once I see an avatar I like it usually takes a long long time before I change it.

I change it when I see a photo I like. I've got a still of the Chips a hoy cookie I found online the other day and liked that photo, but haven't gotten around to taking off my mockery of a photo about George Sr and Barbara. The photo is supposed to be animated with W Sr hammering in that sign, but it's not. I also like hockey and have a jpeg of my favorite hockey team -- the San Jose Sharks. I don't live that far from Dallas and although Eric Lindros is hot, I prefer the Sharks.

How far from dallas, I use to live in Texas when I was younger I lived in houston and sugarland. It was nice and hot but I was homesick for the snow. I love hockey my favorite team is the Pittsburgh, Penguins they are having a good year. Thank you for your response and have a nice day.

Bella, my hubby is from Pittsburgh! He always refers to it as "back home". He gets a lot of job offers from headhunters around the country, which "we" never take, but if he got one from anywhere in Pittsburgh, we'd be gone from here in two shakes. We'd pack up the cats, music and my elephant collection and be outta here. He's a die-hard fan of the Penguins, Pirates and Steelers. It makes for some easy presents, though. Very recently, I got to see my first live in person football game - Steelers vs. the Scams, oh I mean Rams, here in good ole St. Louis. We had seats in the third row off the field. A good friend, who owns the bar we frequent, got the tickets for us as a gift and what a gift it was! My favorite part was seeing Troy Palumalu (sp) - whoa! he rocks my boat! Love those Samoans! Aside from Stuie having so much fun, Palumalu was the only really good part for me. Not a fan, I repeat, not a fan of any sport or team. I root for the Pittsburgh teams because he does, so I'm really just rooting for him. I've told him that one of my best pals here is a Pittsburgh fan, but I still can't get him on here. Oh, well...guess I'll be having all the fun. Love ya, darlin'!!!!

We have a saying when your born in raised in the pittsburgh area that once a steelers fan always a steelers fan .. It goes for all the teams in the pittsburgh area ... It's like it's drilled into us and we can't deprogram from it.LOL!! Your hubby should get on and talk to the other steelers, pens, pirates fans. Have fun at the bar hun.

I thought I answered this... Might have been yet another item on the deletion list. Anyways, I change mine at random. Actually now I may employ a randomizer for my avatar or something of the sort. Why? Well sometimes I want a different avatar on the side and shown to mylot. I have plenty of characters to put up too.

The past three avatars were of Kaede Fuyou from Shuffle! The ones I've used are actually not from the anime, they are from the visual novel.

I like to change my avatar if i see a picture that i really like then i swap my avatars on all sites i use to my latest faborite pic. Only lately I have being doing that tho as I did used to always use a real life picture of me instead of anything else but using strange little pictures gives you more security that people don't know who you really are or what you look like. I took my proper photo off as I saw it else where!! Someone was using a normal pic of me on their site!! So that made me use random pictures. Change is good!!

Yep change is definitely good I can only imagine your surprize when you saw someone using your photo. I tend to only put pictures of me up where I know I can make my page private. Like myspace. LOL!!!

this is my third month in myLot and I have just changed my avatar lately for the first time. actually I rarely change avatar, the reason when I finally changed that was because I found better pictures that I felt more cute. :P the reason I wouldn't change my avatar too often was because there were some friends who wouldn't recognize my name but rather my avatar, that's why I rarely changed it.

I don't change my avatar on 'some' programs or sites. Like here in mylot - as you can see I still use the default one . But for other programs like yahoo messenger I change it very often.

I used to change my avatar often. I've been here almost a year and have had 8 (maybe more) avatars. Though I have been using my current avatar for the past 7 months. I'm happy with it and my husband likes it, so I'll keep it for now. :)
