    Personally i could care less. Ok that is a lie! I like seeing them change up! Yes there is the intitial "who the fuck is talking to me" moment when they say something to you in the threads, but really, it doesn't bother me. I like seeing different facets of peoples' personalities bubble to the surface in their choice of avatars.

    Some would take longer ot adjust to (like if pendlum changed his, i know i would be looking for the manga bear still, and chuckle whenever I remembered it wasn't him anymore) but ultimately...

    I know some of you are dead set against changed up avatars.

    So where do you fall? I didn't include a poll, cuz there are too many permutaions of opinions reasoning behind them.

    I don't mind if someone changes their avatar.

    What chaffs my motherfucking arse is a newbie stealing the avatar of a member who has been here and using it for years!

    Fuck the hell off dickhead and get your own!

    what Ms. Dragon said!!
    *shakes fist at uppity newbies*

    i admit to sometimes using avatars for identification. :redface: changes have a moment of "oh, wow, it's you!?!"

    eta: if anyone steals my uber-kute-kitteh avatar i will have to kill you. so don't even think about it *grrr face*

    I change my avvys frequently. Anyone who isn't aware either reads me infrequently or has some fundamental learning disability. I remain me.

    How will you know if I am thinking about it?

    Might be, might not be........

    It can throw you, but then it's interesting how people wish to present themselves and then change that.

    I haven't changed mine since I made a profile, but I'd only do it once a year This is not Facebook. I want comments on my photos not my profile pic. I don't mind what others do

    My avatar is legendary!;)
    I have a bigger problem when people change their usernames.....or even worse when they change it then don`t notify the mods and get banned! Happens to chatters mostly, cause they are not keen on reading the rules:(

    My avatar has been the same since I joined. I'm either too lazy to find a new one or consider myself such an icon that it cannot be changed. Take your pick.

    It can be momentarily confusing since I associate a name and avatar together but then I'm fine with it.

    I try to stay with 1 avatar for myself and not change since it would confuse me (which isn't that difficult a thing to do anyway.)

    That's the beauty of the pig. I can change her as often as I like and yet I am always easily identifiable.

    Others changing their av's doesn't bother me - I adjust quickly.

    I do get associations though - a monotone line drawing of a bundle of twigs still gets me wet :biggrin:

    Really? This kind of thing makes you hot? And yet people think I'm weird.

    I like consistency on this issue, and I stick with one, except that I occasionally switch out (like now) with a similar one but with eyes closed.

    Incidently, that is not me but a buddy who used to fuck my wife.

    It doesn't bother me in the long term, but it does throw me when it happens.

    I don't plan on changing mine - it was two years before I even had an avatar (TBH I wasn't even looking for one) and it seems so perfect that I can't think of anything else.

    I like when people stick with the same avatar...it's kind of like a face, when it changes it's like plastic surgery. It's like someone went all Kenny Rogers on their face! :eek: I get used to tho, so to each their own.

    I tend to stick with the same pin up girl - just in different poses with different clothiing.

    Nico,

    It was a little confusing at first. Especially when it was someone I'd come to associate with a certain avatar. The avatar was the person as far as my posts were concerned. Then suddenly there's a stranger talking to me about something... and I'm confused (yes more so than normal.) Ahhh... it's NICO with a new avatar :) Friends can be inspiring!
