If i change my avatar...?
November 9, 2006 1:06am CST
i found new animated images and i was thinking to put one as my avatar but i fear that people won't recognise me anymore at first sight..and i have many friends here..and we all recognise ourselfs by the avatars and changing it i think it will make it harder for my friends to find me:(

YOu can inform all your friends through PM and change the avatar, if you have better better one and dislike the existing one. For others, it is the contents of the discussion topic that is important than the container.

Many people here change their avatar frequently, I keep thinking about changing mine but cannot find any appropriate. I understand that most people become accustomed to seeing a certain avatar which registers as familiar before they even notice the username, but this should be a problem. The avatar displayed next to your username will change in your friends list of friends as well, so they will be aware of the siruation.

yeah i know they have me on their list but as u said,....you phisically recognise a person from his avatar firs of all,and actually it happened many times for me that i didn't even know the nickname of a certain person but i knew his avatar..this also happens because some of the users have chosen dificult to remember names...

yes,i find them eventually but harder..it also depends on how much we have interracted because there are some that i really got to know very well so i recognise them immediately and others that only answered once or twice to my discussions and those are hard to remember

i know,but some users have names that are hard to remember,not to mention to pronounce so i remember them by the avatar...by the way,why don't you choose one?to be sincere,i rarely am attracted to give attention to those who didn't choose an avatar..it makes me think they don;t wanna get involved so much and that they are too lazy to check out all the options they have to personalise their profile...i am not trying to offend you,but to give you my honest opinion..maybe others think like me too

i love your avatar!!!! and you are right, whenever i go through discussions, i will remember my friends' avatar and will make it a point to respond to their discussion first instead of checking out the user name. pls dont change i think your avatar is very cute!!! btw, only 85 to go to reach 1000, all the best to you and keep up the good work! cheers!

i can see that,i have changed it and you still found me hehe..damn and i was running away from u hihihihi...but usually i recognise my friends better by the avatar than by name espcially because some of them have confusing names,urs is simple and easy to remember so don't worry;P
