New Avatar

June 23, 2011 8:26am CST
I have had the same Avatar ever since I have been a member of mylot and I use pretty much the same on most sites on the internet because it sometimes is easier than keep changing it and deciding which picture of myself I prefer! However since I have had the same one for so long I am wondering whether to change it or not as the picture is now a good few years old! The only downside is I like people to know it is still me - saying that if people respond through email alerts then it wouldn't matter anyway would it as the email tells them who started the discussion? What do you think?

I would say - stick to it, you look beautiful in this picture. Over the years your avatar would have become your identify and trade mark and your friends could easy recognise you.

Most friends will respond to your topic based on email notifications and others like me go for topics that are of interest and so it does not matter really whether a user is recognised by the image that is displayed.

Also frankie, anyone can access your page whether you are a friend or not and there are several avenues available to search for interesting topics. I like change and so I keep changing my avatar.

While it's sometimes nice to change an avatar, I also like it when people always use the same one, it's easier to recognize them. In fact, I remember you being on Ciao (can't believe its been closed for two years today)... probably because of the avatar. I don't think I have ever changed my myLot avatar, but I haven't used it on other sites...

i like your profile picture, it's a good picture of you, and you probably don't need me to tell you you're a really pretty girl! .. i had a pucture of myself up for awhile there, and then i found it was invading my privacy a little by people knowing exactly who i was and what i looked like, so i changed it to this little skull with a bow, which is actually a tattoo i want haha :) funny that, i commented on another of your posts, saying something about a tattoo. i think the pictures lovely, and its easily recognizable to anyone who knows you. if your happy with it, then keep it :)

Our appearance,even for an online presence,is something we'd put at least some care and attention into so as to get noticed,and perhaps remembered by others..so If you feel it's around time you had a change of image,then go for it! Just for the record,that's a good portrait shot You're using already...

Hi there, Yes I find it easier to see the same avatar of a member and that way I can easily see who that is simply by looking at the picture. Though I have changed mine 3 times since my full year here, I sort of kept the same theme as I do create my own. I do like to use the same on most sites unless the site does not allow a gif then I have a second one which I will use if the gif is not allowed. I remember a long time ago where there was an issue with the site and my avatar disappeared and I had started a discussion and a few members responded oh it's you. lol, so you see many will remember us by our avatars more then our names. Good point here!
