  • The Changing of the Forum Avatars

    I have become aware in the past few years that some of our fellow forumites finding it confusing/disturbing when a poster changes their avatar without warning or explanation. For their sake, I have created this thread for the considerate among us to state their change of forum clothes.

    Hi, I'm Prometheus878, the poster who makes kinda-sorta-not-really funny comments and generally tries too hard to be engaging. I mostly hang out on the Exalted and Off Topic forums. I used to have Gundam or giant robot themed avatars, before Mel Uran blessed the world with the cutest signature characters portraits in Exalted history.

    Now, I am Volfer, warrior of the Dawn Caste! Fear my adorable might!

              So funny this thread should come up this weekend -- I was thinking about changing my avatar 'cus it's been the same for about 6-7 years now (and I've only used about 4 or so, total, since the forums first opened in the 90's). Strangely enough, after reading this I am now thinking about leaving it even though I've been wanting to change it. Damn you, reverse psychology!


              I have been around here for waaaayyyy too fucking long...

                  But anyways, it is silly to expect members to notify everyone every time someone changes their avatar.

                      I know, right?

                      But I also feel like I need a look of consternation for a while too. nWoD threads are...not always a smart place right now

                        I have no dog in this race.* But for those who do find it confusing or bothersome to face sudden avatar changes... How bad is it when one of the faceless masses such as myself suddenly takes up an avatar?

                        * Annnnd on looking at Arcane's avatar again, I am forced to say, "Thanks, brain, I totally don't hate the way you pick low-hanging fruit like that."

                            As someone who identifies people by thier avatar, it is pretty awesome when a poster finally gets an avatar. You are a real person now!

                            If not a big deal if someone changes an avatar. You still have you username connected to your post. It's only annoying to me when you have the same avatar as someone else.

                            Man, I can not tell you how much I hate "change your profile pic for a cause" days on Facebook.

                              I almost didn't catch that, but when I did I had to roll over in disbelief. I beg you do not do that again.
