At the very first when I joined Mylot I used to remember my friends by avatar. But gradualy it was getting tough, because people keep changing avatar and also sometime different people use the same avatar. So, I started to remember the usernames of my friends. Till now it is going like that. I know it is not possible to remember all hundreds of my friends user name, but with whom I am close and come across everyday I surely do remember their user name.

I change my avatar quite often and I have probably confused a few people in the process. Personally I tend to remember the usernames of the members that I respond to most, but even if I forgot the usernames it would not really make a lot of difference. One of the first categories that I visit is "discussions my friends started", so the topics would be found whether I recognised the member or not.

yes sometimes I do. I always just look at the name now and that helps big time. I have friends that change their avatar like they change their cloths.heheheheh

I try to go with user names first. Avatars come second. Those I recognise the most by their user names, are really my friends here on myLot, the one's I reply to their topics a lot.. So it doesn't matter if they changed their avatars. it's the new ones I try to concentrate on. Frankly I think an avatar should have some sort of relation with the user name.

I too recognize my friends through their avatars but more than once avatars have been copied which has led to mis recognition. So nowadays I look at the avatar and the name too. I don't know why people still avatars..that's the last thing we need other than cheating and spamming! If you know your friend's name then do this www.mylot.com/username and maybe it will take you to her profile.
