    Yeah. When I browse topics in the forum, I'm perpetually scrolling down. If there are particular posters that I know will post a predictably inane or erroneous reply, I'll simply continue to scroll down. On the other hand, posters I enjoy reading, I'll stop my scrolling upon identifying their avatar. Avatars supersede names for me. E.g. I used to think Ivy's old name was spelled EnglishIvy, where in fact, its spelling was slightly altered (the meaning of English was still there; I think it was EnglshIvy). This didn't come to my attention until a poster I enjoy identified a user who did the exact same thing I did.

    It's irritating when posters change their avatars to the extent I have to recalibrate my visual memory-it's certainly not hard, but is still nevertheless an impediment. Like you, I consider myself a visual learner. I find the need to ignore people obsolete due to the fact that I can identify them so quickly via avatar and scroll on. Also I do enjoy musing over the idea of why the people I enjoy chose their avatar.

    i went from sub-zero (on day 1-2), a pothead skull, to a pissed off eye, to an upside-down happy face.
    Talk about sticking to a theme, gone down the drain. :P

    Oh well, this will be my avatar for a very long time. So get it associated with Evan

    I changed my avatar to a picture of Jessica Biel's ass, but the women folk disapproved, so I changed it back.

    The av change only confuses me if it's a new person that I'm still getting used to. Otherwise, I have no problem with people changing their avs frequently. And I'd never choose to turn them off...they're like the art on the walls of MBTIc.

    *amused* This is why I turn off "view avatars". Actually no, I turn them off because of limited bandwidth *shakes fist at Aussie telecom company*.

    So the conclusion is that I don't have this problem. If you turn it off, you won't be annoyed/confused.

    It doesn't bother me, I go through loads of avatars, it's like an outfit, I will change it when I see something I like more.

    At least they aren't changing user names.

    Falcarius could not care what other people do with regards to avatars, but he likes changing his, he does so usually about seven or eight times a year. Falcarius thinks it should be easy for people who associate and look out for avatars to know who he is; he's very narcissistic and always puts a picture of himself in his avatar's.

    Narcissism, plain and simple.
