Do you pick an avatar for your interests?

September 1, 2007 10:48am CST
I wonder how many are like me. You know how your interests are on the left-hand side of the screen? Well if you don't set a photo to be your default interests avatar for that interest, the pics will rotate and you get different pics from time to time. Well it kills me and I had to set a default pic for each interest so I can recognize it right away without reading what it is. Lazy, OCD, who knows why I have that urge. I just wonder who else has done this and why. So here are my questions, pick what you want to answer... Did you pick default pic for your interests? Either way, why? Did you know you can pick one and if not do you think you will now? Why or why not? Thanks to all.

I only have a few that are the default ones all the rest I have actually loaded myself. I started doing that a few months ago when there was a default one for religion that kept revolving and it drove me nuts and then I happily found out I got paid for uploading my own.

I don't have one for each interests, but I have picked one for a few of them. Usually for me it happens when one pops up that's really annoying to me, and I just can't stand looking at it. There was a particularly annoying religion one just because it moved and was distracting, so I now have my own avatar for religion. I also have my own for pregnancy, just because there was one that was kind of eerie-looking at one point. *thinks* I'm not sure how many other topics I have chosen avatars for, but I always assume that I will eventually choose one if I see a picture I really like for it, or see one I really don't like and choose to change. =P

LOL, I had a couple pop up there before I knew I could set them, that flashed, drove me nuts. What an AHH it was that I could set them.

I do do this :) I haven't got them all picked but I certainly have the ones I look at the most done. I did it for the same reason you said : because I like knowing which image goes to what. Especially the Harry Potter one under movies and the Harry Potter one under books. Very confusing LOL. I often uploaded pictures to use as my default one too. I also think that is a great feature they gave us to be able to do that :)

Honestly, I never knew about that until you posted this. Even if I knew, I think it's not that a big deal for me!;) I would like to think that I can still read, though I too have some difficulties in reading (visually impared?).LoL I would like to try it though, if I get used up to all of these "normalities" here in mylot!;) OCD - Well that's really difficult to deal with, not unless you know how to handle it.

I do not really give importance to those avatars. Anyway, I choose by the words and not by the avatars. I also could notice that they keep on changing. Almost everyday. Anyway, its okay. I prefer to go firstto my friends' discussions before going to my interests.

I didn't pick the default pic for my interests. I didn't really know you could do that. I just let them rotate. I still probably won't change mine cause it doesn't bother me on what picture is there.
