I noticed there are lots of mylotters who uses different avatars instead of their real pictures,if you are required to put your real picture,are you going to put it as your avatar? Well,for me,why not? I would go for it! I somehow gained friends here with no real pictures,I would want to see them if they want to. I wonder why you used that avatar,is there a story behind it why you used it? My avatar is my baby daughter,she's a miracle baby that's why she's so special,so I put her as my avatar.

Wonderful story behind your avatar. Well back to your topic, I would. I think, perhaps it's a requirement, so by hook or by crook, I have to abide by it. But I still prefer to put pictures that represent me, rather than my own picture. I'm quite expressive and prefer to use other things to tell people about my feelings and things like that.

Hello JudgeIronfist, Yes it is indeed a wonderful picture and a very cute one as well. But I also remember yugasini having a picture of her kid as well. Well, I don't mined but for sure I will just upload my younger version always. I guess it's best to express it not just you're pic but something inner you based on the images in the avatar.

I guess i didn't really like to put my real picture, but in case mylot requires me to, i have no problem with it. i'll just put up my real photo. But then again when i think of it, how do they know if it's my real photo and not just some other guys? not really a problem i guess

Hello lunion, same here, I don't like uploading my real pic either. I tried but didn't like in the end. In my opinion, that avatar of yours is even cuter and simple presentationof you. There's nothing wrong with putting up the best image which doesn't have to be real.

Hi there lunion! Haha,yah you're right! Who knows if that is their real picture,lol! You got me there! Well,it's up to them if they really don't like it. I like your picture though,so cute! See you around!

I don't mind it at all. I have no problem to use my own photo as my avatar. Actually I have uploaded quite a lot of my photos online. As well as you, right now my avatar is my son:) Since he is my angel. If I didn't have a child, perhaps I would upload my own photo:) I love China

Hello youless, You got a cute avatar also not to mention that's you're kid, right? I used to upload photot myself but I didn't like it because I needed better image of myself than just my real photo. By the way, there's officially four of you that I know who's posting the childs as an avatar, which I can say real cute.

Hello youless! I feel for you! We both love our child so much that's why they are our avatar. My daugter is my miracle in life! Cute son you have there! See you around!

I can't see why they would require it - that would be goofy! But I put my real picture up anyway. I don't know why, I just do this and have since I started here. I think it makes things a little more personable and gives you an idea of who you're talking to (or what they look like, at least). I like putting a face to the people I talk to online, for some reason. Cute avatar BTW :)

Hello Maezee, Well, you seemed to have always attract me with that avatar of yours, more so daring now that it doesn't have glasses.that's good to know that you're not afraid to load you're personal pic, I do like the new one though. I think it's better that way, some users (probably like me) don't like the idea of putting the real picture since it's not required and more symbolic like for others to remember.
• Philippines
23 Dec 10
Hi there maezee! Well,I wouldn't ask you more why you put your own picture as your avatar,you are so pretty! Better that way maezee! Yes,for me it's better to know the faces of people you are talking to online but it's still alright with me if they don't want it. See you around pretty maezee!

I really don't like to put my actual photo up, I guess I am just a bit nervous about that. My avatar is just something that I thought was really cute and sort of fit my attitude towards life and had a fun and dark side like me. I like yours though she is so so cute.

Hello Viceriene, I was nervous too but I did upload it at one time and since no one got intrigue by it I decided to just changed it something else though. That's right the avatar is something that represent the inner you or something that you prefer presenting yourself with. Yeah, her avatar is cute representing her inspiration.

I don't think myLot would do such thing, but if it does, I'll put a picture of mine as my avatar. Yet, I don't think anybody would like to see my vinegar face . But I like more the picture I have now as my avatar as it shows my two loves: dogs and nature.
• Philippines
22 Dec 10
Hello Inu1711, I don't think they would because addresses and numbers in land line and mobile phone are not allowed. Well, don't put down on you're true self since we are all strangers here but friends in this community. I attended a conference of mylotters and it didn't matter whether I was fat or quiet.
• Philippines
23 Dec 10
Hi inu! Well,I don't think it's true,that you have a vinegar face. Your avatar is nice,we both love nature too! See you around! @LetranKnight-wow,you attended the conference,I would love to attend that time but I don't have a nanny for my baby,anyway,I know there will surely be next time,hope to see you all!

Well I don't think that mylot would ever requires us to do that, but if they did than I would have too because I would not want to be banned from mylot I love it way to much this were I go to type and earn some money so that I could buy things like for college it really does help. Every little bit counts and that is always so true.

If a picture is required naturally I would, however what is to say that someone who posts a picture it would actually be them. My Wendy girl avatar I use simply because she is so cute. I like to see her as my avatar as she cries, sings and yells but hurts no one ears. Kind of like me in real life. I am a very silent depressed person. I do not go around telling people how I feel as I think they would not listen. So Wendy does it for me.

23 Dec 10
Hello friend! I like the reason why you use wendy as your avatar,very well explained. I didn't know you're a silent person. Depressed? I hope not. You are one of my friends here in mylot that I always see. My daughter loves your avatar so much,she says she is her crying and shouting,lol! See you around my friend!

Hello cheravs, It's hard to believe that some users still love the default avatar. But of course, am sure in time you will need to change you're image here too. It's just that with me I got used to friendster, hi5 and myspace. So that's why I prefer to having an updated and cool avatar atmost.

Hello there cheravs! Whenever I see a mylot default avatar,I was thinking they are newbies,lol! I feel they doesn't know how to upload pictures that's why they just use it,well,that's just what I think of it,hehe! Hope it will be a requirement so I can see all of you mylotters! @Letran-thanks for your participation here,I appreciate it much!

Kellysun- I feel that if you see my real picture everyday as my 'avatar', it may lose its charm one day. Nonetheless, you can presume that I look as beautiful and cute as my avatar. It is neither my son nor me in my avatar, by the way. (I understand you have seen my real picture, have not you?)

I do not want to put my photo in my profile, if you put your photo there it becomes the property of the site. The only owner of any of my photos I want is me. I think you never know what will happen to or with the photos you put on sites. I was listening to the news and there was this report on Facebook, it stated in the report that Facebook has taken the photos of its member and used them for their own purpose. Now there is this uproar.

Oh my,that's something,haven't heard of that lately until now from you. That's illegal! See you around chalde and welcome to mylot!

It should be illegal but they are doing it, and probably claiming they own the content on the site.

I have just answered a very similar topic. I look very stern, whereas I do have a sense of humour- not apparent in my passport photo. Besides, who would know if the picture were really you or not, unless I posted one of a famous actor on my profile? As it happens, the avatar on my profile was at least created by me, so has some of my character.

I am glad that mylot gives us the choice on what we want our avatar to be. I think that if we were forced to add our picture as a profile picture then I think there would be people who would quit mylot or not sign up at all if they were new and it was required. Sometimes people really want to maintain their privacy and thats important to be able to do so. I have been thinking of taking my profile pictures down and just putting up something that others can recognize me with but I am not sure what yet. I have started to worry about stalkers tracking me down or even something smaller like everyone in town seeing my picture and then gossiping about what I write.

Cute baby of yours :) I will be posting my own photo if it is really required. Who knows we can be bumping into each other on the streets and we don't know that we are actually friends here. Nothing really special about my avatar. I was just playing online when i saw this game that i can create and dress up an anime so i did try and i liked it. That's why i made it my avatar here. My previous avatar was my World of warcraft account, but i changed it because i keep on missing it everytime i see the photo of it.

Your avatar is lovely! Mine is a cat because I adore felines of all kinds. The reason I don’t have a picture of myself as my avatar is because I have my photograph on several different sites such as Facebook and my writing sites so I thought I would be different here where I spend a lot it time. It saves me having to look at myself so much (LOL)!

Hi, Mtrguanlao.:) I have no problem using my own pictures here. I did that. Matter of fact I already used two of my real pictures here but I keep on changing my avatar since my face and mood change as time passes by.LOL But it is a grewat thing if we can stick to only one avatar because we will be able to recognize the poster or respondent easily by being familiar of his profile picture. Some has stories to tell others do it for fun and as their mood requires. :) Your baby is adorable.:)

I use my own picture to display it as my avatar. I don't have any story behind it, I just like my picture so I put it here. I think it is good to have your own picture because you are easy to find out and predicted by your friends and they can start the discussion with you more easily because it will make you ordinary.
