I was going to use the little shadow man for awhile but when someone said they'd like to see a picture of my cat, I put one up. I've noticed a lot of folks use their pets. Some of you use photos and some use graphics. Most of the movie stars of India seem to be fronting for somebody. What's the best to use? Should it be representational or just fun?

I think alot of people use something that is representational. I like my kitty, and I think yours is cute too.

Thank you. I like your kitty too. Iused to have a black & white cat named "Beans". He was quite a character.

heres how I see it, avatars are an expression of yourself, so if you seriously like something, example I use my photo as my avatar because I am an upfront kinda person who has nothing to hide. :)

You look like an open kinda guy and that's great. I'm not sure just yet how I feel about putting personal stuff up but I think I most admire the folks who've put up their photos. It seems really honest and I think that probably carries over into the discussions.

I think the best avatars are those pictures that do indeed say a thousand words. I think that the best avatar depends on what you mean by best. personally I think that a good avatar reveals something about the person behind it.

I use one of my chihuahuas because I am so proud of her and I want everyone to see her. I may change to one of my others as I do not want the others to get jealous..Ha ha
