I want to upload my real picture in my avatar but i'm still afraid because it is save to upload our real picture at here? I dont want people steal my picture and say that is him. I also not upload my real picture in facebook. I just show my real picture to my close friend and someone i can trust. I also shy because my real face look like a girl.

Didn't we talk about this before??? You are funny, Akamaru. Go ahead. Post it. To your avatar. Everybody's waiting. And now you attracted a lot of attention to it. So everybody wants to see it now. C'mon, post it. It will be a surprise for Mavic when she gets back. Do it! Just do it!

Okay then. Put it in your photos. I don't have any way to upload anything. Even if I did I wouldn't know how. I don't know anything about computers. I think your grandma is older than me. But I don't have any wrinkles in my face yet and I don't think I look like a grandma.

That is impossible you do not know to upload. You can ask your son or your daughter if you dont know about computer. . By the way you not celebrate christmas because i see you have a lot of free time online in mylot?

Yes you can upload your real pic here or any other social networking site because if you upload your real pic who knows this is real only you or your friends know about you. It is real i have used this method but your pic must be changed by photoshop means it should be look like a image or wallpaper not a pic. So dont worry upload your photo and change every month and get real like comments and new friends. Best of luck

I don't think I would put my upload my picture on any site but fb. Like you said anyone can steal them and say anything they want about it. Threre are so many nice avatars you could choose from.

They can take it, but can they reproduce another picture of the same face same exact person in a different setting? Not one that is already in your uploaded photos either. I had to do this to get a verified account label for another site. Someone who has stolen you picture will have a very hard time proving that they are you. There are ways of finding them out.

See,both sites,i mean Facebook and mylot. In Facebook,it is not recommended that you upload your photos,but in mylot you can upload your photo without any problem.But it is not necessary to upload real pictures here.Just an avatar or logo or any photo is allowed here.

if you like to post your real picture I dont think there is something wrong with it. however, if you feel uneasy and feel that it may invade your privacy i dont that is a problem. you are not required to put your own photo here. since may of the mylot users are not posting theirs to.

Hi akamaru! I really had a happy time reading those responses and comments on your post. You all made me laugh. So how is it? Were you able to upload your photo? I am using my real picture and I don't see any problem about it. Have a nice day!

Hello AKA, It depends on you it hardly matters if you upload you real pics or not. But I feel no one is going to comment on your pic its just a fear in you and you can overcome it once you upload your real pic.

There is nothing wrong uploading your real picture as a profile picture or an avatar. I am using my real picture in facebook and I used it then here in mylot when I started joining here but I found out that it is cool to use my pet pic as an avatar...

It should depend on you. i think it is our choice and our risk if we put our photos online in mylot, or in other forums you are a member of. we can never really be too sure. if you want your photo as your avatar, then you can do it. ;) there shouldn't be a lot of people who would try to steal your identity, unless you do have a lot of information shared in the internet, or facebook for that matter that they will get to know you too well.

It will make you more credible and trustworthy if you upload your true picture...I think no one will steal your picture unless you are a celebrity or a hot adult magazine model...

It's your choice. If you have any doubts and fears like that, it's okay you don't have to force yourself to upload your photo to have it as your avatar.

that's a risk when you post photos online most websites can't stop anyone from downloading photos so post photos if you want but don't be surprised if someone steals it I remember something like that happened here, someone's avatar is stolen and used by another member. found out and reported. but that's mylot. if the member downloads it and uses it on another website, won't be that easy to be found because the photo owner may not be member of the same site. I'm not trying to scare you, just stating the obvious. the very reason I never post my photos online anymore. if I did, I had some kind of signatures on each photo. either my short name or something else. this won't stop anyone downloading and use it, but it's the best I can do lol that's just me though. I know people who always post real photos and never encounter such problem. so it may or may not happen to you, can't say for sure.

yes it happened more than once I only remember a female member's avatar. forgot the other ones and their names. I am not always active here, so it might happen again without me knowing. if you add a signature or something, it might be alright I don't know

If you feel comfortable with the idea, do it. I don't like to post real pictures of me on the Internet because I don't feel comfortable with the idea, not to mention I don't want one of my stalkers to find me online and figure where I live. I very cautious when it comes to the internet and sharing personal information.
