I never really cared too much for little stuff like that, but I have to admit, it's pretty cool after living with them for a while.  I used to have to scan for my screen name, but now I just look for my picture  smile

Plus, people occasionally come up with some pretty funny avatars.

Anyone else feelin the love?

Agreed - I am in limbo about what I want mine to be right now, as you can see, though.

I certainly enjoy looking at Kate every chance I get.

So no complaints here.

I had to turn them off because the "skin" factor. I sit between my boss's office and the main printer, so he is often going back and forth. Flesh color, even if its a small square, is something noticable from a far distance. With no avatars, it blends in nicely with my work applications.

I'm pretty fond of my demon within motif. smile The white background makes it easy to find my posts.

Also, I love unbreakable's avatar. KMFDM. woot.
oh, I'm thinkin' Mytocles needs to change hers to Hobbes, just to get that balanced with the Rage. slywink

LOL

I'm impressed you beat Ron to that kind of a line (as he's a giant Ultima fan).

And I love having avatars. As stated already, it's easier to look for the image than trying to find the name. That and being known as Dark Helmet is always a good thing. biggrin

Very, very funny! I think you're just jealous though... :twisted:  Actually, I've thought of it, but just cannot seem to give up my Morrowind favorite character avatar.  Though you may see an Oblivion one at some point.  Cool

And I agree that they are very handy - for recognizing your own posts and that of others, too.  Much easier than just names! And I adore many of them:  see this old post, although some of it won't make sense since a few avatars have changed...
