I was wondering, how most of you keep in your mind about a fellow mylot friend. Is it by their name or by their display picture. If you are good friends with them and one day they change their display picture would you recognize him/her or not. I think for me it would be very difficult to remember by names. Usually my mind memorizes the picture of the friend. What about you.. share your views?

Hi Rizzu, Well, I've only been a member here for 4 days, so I cannot tell you about MyLot. But I've been in forums a lot and have to say: after a while hangin' around with people, I don't need the pictures or even there name for that matter. When you get to know your fellow posters, you'll regognise them by the way they write things down. Even on differnt messageboards, I've been finding them, even when they had changed their names. But in the first place, the pictures stay with me. Second it will be screennames.

Well, that's because I've spend time with them on a daily basis. After a while you'll get to regognise their tone of voice. Have a nice day! :-)

I remember the pictue and the name. Some of my friends here have been friends on other sites for a long time. I correspond with them on a egular basis. Others are new friends and I try to remember both the name and picture.

I tend to remember the pictures more. There are just too many names for me to remember and some of them even look the same sometimes! The only ones I remember the names of are names that hold a memory of my life somehow. If a friend changes their picture, most of the time I would have to go see some of their discussions to remember who they are, just like you!

hmmm... pictures are very easy to remember as compared to names. Really some names are unreadable. and are very difficult to remember. Well thanks anyways to giving a feedback. Have a nice day

Display picture mostly, some nicknames are too complicated with numbers and stuff to remember anyway :P

Oh yeah! And I think it's alot better if friends can keep their same picture for as long as possible, that way wedon't get confused!

Many times at first, it often is their display picture, but then it becomes because of their name. I have a lot of friends here in myLot that I know them by name and even if they switch up their display picture all the time just their name brings me wanting to respond back to them. But also what tends to help me not miss out on so many discussions my friends start in here, is the Friends Started tab as well.

Hi. I guess it is the combination of both for me, the avatar and the username.

Hi rizzu 87, i usually remember most people by their pic rather than their profile names. now that i am here for few months and i have been getting replies from some persons regularly on my post and i have been trying to response to their discussions so i remember their names too but still it is pic which gets recognized first.

Most I know by names, a few others by their picture. Sometimes I visit my friends profiles to see what discussions they have posted.
