Yo pit,

I've been here a fair while (though I bet barely anyone recognises me), and it struck me, that whenever I scroll through a thread and read peoples answers, I very rarely recognise them by name, but by their avatar. Is anyone else like this?

Also, I've been thinking of changing my avatar, but if theres anyone else like me, who associate things to a users avatar, wouldnt it be almost like changing your image IRL?

Jus' wondering, like. This will probably go down like a lead spaceship, fuelled on liquid hamster farts, but it'd be cool to get peoples opinion.

I read peoples names, I recognise a few people by their avatars, but I tend to just read the name instead.


Though I think my avatar is pretty easy to spot

I don't want to change my avatar, both because people are more likely to recognise it than my name, and because I sort of hope that people read my posts in Chris Morris's newscaster voice.

I recognise most people by their avatars, and a few by their names.

Avatars are all different, whereas names are all just yellow text. When you scroll down the page, it's easier to notice the avatar than the name.

I really should change mine, seeing as it's now May and it has a Santa hat.

TBH, I look at people's names mostly, then use their avatar as a quick reference later in the thread.

I use my avatar to find my own posts [because it's the only purple thing on UG].

I change mine fairly often, but my sig stays pretty much the same.

It's all about names for me. I change my avatar a ton, and figure other people might want to as well.

I remember you... but you had a different avatar.


That must have been a long time ago, I remember the last one I had was a Napoleon Dynamite one (when I was obsessed with the film- can't stand to watch it now), but that was about 3/4 years back.

Yeah, I was wondering where Kensai went, and then one day I decided to look at the name of someone's avatar I kept seeing and lo and behold, it was the Swede...

I just read the names since avatar limits on here are so small.

It's working.

OT: I've changed my avatar a few times, but I always come back to this one. Generally I know people on here by their username, but the avatar does play a part in recognizing people.

I'd change mine, but it seems like everyone knows me only for having the hobbes avatar. I remember when everyone knew me for having the voldemort avatar, but I bet nobody else remembers that.

I recognize some avatars. Mostly unique ones or ones that people have had for a while.


I've had this one for the better part of the past 5-6 years at least. I change it from time to time, but it always changes back to this one now.


In fact now I kind of want to change it.

The only time I pay attention to avatar only is when its like "Guitarboy888593" or some other generic crap.

Just wondering why you place "like" at the end of some sentences?

I think my avatar is pretty recognizable, though I don't post all that much.
