I mean, look at it. It's so lame. some no face guy saying exclamation point? Where's his neck and fingers? I think we should all petition to have a better, more awesome default profile image. It lowers self esteem.

Hah! I never paid that attention. You can always upload some cool picture so you wouldn't represent yourself with that lame avatar you're talking about.

Yeahhhh. i'll upload a picture. maybe. i'm still thinking of what i want. i want my avatar to be permanent so i'm not changing it every week or so. Thanks for the response.

Why not get off your butt, and download your own picture to be your avatar? It will raise your self esteem more than any default image, and its the best way to generate interest in your discussions that I know. This is because people soon get to know you by your individual avatar, and will stop to read your discussion because they know your avatar. If you are taking the time to join myLot, you might just as well take a bit more time, and download your avatar. Good luck with it!

I hope you are being sarcastic... No. I could get off my butt (which isnt necessary) but i'm not doing that either hahahahaha. i'll think about uploading an avatar. right now, i'm doing fine without it. actually i dont think i need one since i attracted people to this and other discussions as well as you (ironically). but i need some ideas... i was thinking about a lobster.

Perhaps it's so 'lame' in order to encourage you to upload your own avatar?
