Daily Avatar chaning?
« on: May 18, 2013, 11:20:48 AM »
So, I'm seeing a lot of people who are either changing their avatars daily or seem to have some kind of schedule. Is this just a new fashion or is there some kind of special thingamagummy people are doing nowadays?

Curious Inkidu is curious. :)

It's all an individual thing.  Some people keep the same avatar for months or years, some change it like they change their socks.

I'll change mine for a holiday or when I find one that excites my imagination.  I'll sometimes go back to a previous one for a comfort feel.

I change mine all the time but always keep it as the same model. So the fashions, hair, and looks change but it's always the same.

I guess some people like to give a refreshing look each time.

 I don't think I'll easily change my Avatar even when I want to because I am too damn picky.

Everyday I check to see the new avatar you put up. ::)

I think if I were to drastically change my avatar, there would be a mass protest in my PM box.   ::)

I change because there are simply too many gorgeous Lady Death images not to share. Plus there are enough different types that fit mood and holiday as well.

I change mine whenever the mood strikes. Sometimes I keep one for a month, sometimes only a few days. I have entirely too many to stick to just one, though. >.>

I change mine fairly often, but keep it within the same theme, trying to include either the cowboy hat or boots regardless of the image.

Well, it just seemed more prevalent than when I was last here, so I was just interested to see what was going on.

I'd forgotten there were avatars ^-^ I have mine turned off (aka not displayed) unless I click on some ones name.

The first avi I had when I joined I kept for about eight months, I think. That's the longest I've ever had one avi.  I change mine now for holidays, or when the mood strikes.  But I do stick to my theme.

This is me, too. Is why I never notice when other members' avatars change now, unless someone mentions it specifically in a thread.

The first couple months after I joined, I changed my avatars on a weekly basis, and based it on whatever mood I was feeling at the time.

I stopped changing them so often because I felt that, not only was that difficult for me, but maybe for others too. To me, avatars are simply a way to locate and identify certain members more easily. Because of that.. I try not to change mine too often, because if I was looking for me, I'd have to keep track of my many different avatar changes.

So now, I just change them whenever I get tired of looking at 'em. :P

Well your choice is always perfect. It just happened that that specific avatar had me staring more than once. ;)
