    Question Does this annoy you?

    I find myself unexpectedly discombobulated by members changing their avatars, especially if they do so frequently. After a while I come to associate an avatar with its user and when they change, it just throws me off. Does this annoy you? Do you associate the avatar with the user?

    Not that I give a shit, but why was this moved from The Bonfire to The Fluff Zone? Also, why does it not notify by whom and why it was moved so we may correct behavior?

    Description of The Bonfire: "An area for socializing and lighthearted general discussions."

    Which did I violate?

    EDIT: At the risk of outing myself as a complete idiot, and worse, a thoughtless prick, I would like to apologize for making the above accusation. After some checking, I made the post in The Fluff Zone myself! I am sufficiently chastened, however you are welcome to comment on the irony of such sanctimony.

    Yes, I associate the avatar with the user but it doesn't annoy me too much if they tend to change theirs often. After all, I change my avatar quite a bit.

    Though each user pretty much sticks with the same avatar theme, so that keeps me from getting all mixed up, I think.

    I actually don't associate Avatars with users too much. Im pretty S-tarded, I look for the username and the posting style.

    Personally I need to key in on an avatar I like and find decent, maybe I will run across one that I really like and it will stick!
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    See, Aimahn, I started to associate you with the dude you had on before. I only look at the names secondarily. I didn't even realize this new avatar was "you".

    Not really. But knowing how much it annoys certain people makes me want to do it more often.

    It doesn't annoy me so much as sometimes confuse me. Like CC mentioned, when the themes stay they same it's less confusing. But I do identify visually a lot (esp when members have indistinct/undescriptive usernames).

    I just imagine previous-avatar's face is just cut out of the frame.

    I enjoy seeing clever or otherwise interesting pics, and that's one way it can be accomplished on a more text oriented board. I change mine often, and sometimes the changes themselves symbolize something. Sometimes it's just me thinking that they were getting old. Just remember the name....Kuranes !!
