    I hate it when people change their avatars

    I get so used to seeing that picture and associating it with that person that when someone changes their avatar is takes me awhile to start recignizing their posts.

    the most dramatic incident was awhile ago but i still think of the simpsons dude every time i see mertons name.

    If I had a red star, I would have an avatar that would stay there for a while.

    Well I have a lot of pictures that I really like that I would like to resize and put them as my avatar. eg. My bike. I have tried to resize them by 64x64 but It doesn't look all too good and they are extremely small. I'm not all that fussed about it anyway...

    i used to associate the picture of a dog and the word 'bite' with lowCel's posts. His avatar is a picture of a dog, with the words underneath "yes, she does bite"

    and FLAK's avatar is of a very similar dog, with the words "if only she could bite"

    both have red stars...

    i get confused..

    I tend to agree...its frustrating when you get used to an avatar, then it suddenly changes on you and you don't immediately "recognize" that person.

    I find animated avatars to be rather annoying.

    But then again, I'm easily distracted.
    That's gonna leave a mark.

    You know, I just noticed for the first time that your avatar was the Cannondale logo. I always thought it was some kind of Pacman thing before. Oh well, learn something new every day, eh?

    You probably want to follow the path back to this image's location and get permission, but I thought it was a funny pizza pic.
    That's gonna leave a mark.

    I have now changed my avatar. Before anyone jumps the *** and yells at me for implying that the Irish are a bunch of drunks (read my earlier post), i was kidding about being a drunk, and i was born and raised there.

    Eh... Specialized. How about a pic of your bike in action, or even better a pic of your town?

    Being able to personalize your UserID (not to mention sigs) is one of my favorite things about online forums. I'm constantly coming across images which make me think, "Hey, that would make a cool avatar..." I'm constantly changing it. No need to get yer panties in a bunch, this is just teh intarweb - I don't give a **** if I'm recognized, anyway.

    Sorry, just changed mine again. This should be the last change for a while. You people kept scaring me with the Copy Right talk.
