    Default SJs and Forums

    In my personal experience with forums, I've noticed a few habits I have. For instance, once I've joined a forum and picked an avatar, I will use the same avatar forever. There are some forums where I've had the same avatar for 2 years or more. Once I've got an avatar, I can't seem to change it.

    The same thing more or less applies to signatures. Usually, I can be slightly flexible with signatures, but I'll usually relate all of mys sigs in style or format. (for instance, on a past forum I've been on, my signature was ALWAYS a quote by Emerson.)

    Can any SJs relate? Any habits you've noticed in your forum behavior?

    I have had this avatar for a while along with the sig, but it's not really because I don't WANT to change it. I just forget about it and don't pay much attention. This is the first forum (MBTI forum) that I have joined so I don't really know of any "habits" I have gotten into.

    YES. I have never changed mine on TypoC, and I never will. (unless I find a better picture of Gromit.) I would, only everyone associates me with him now, so I'd just be confusing people.
    "Uh, gawrsh, where'd Gromit-girl go?"

    Not for me, necessarily. If I keep it for a long time, it's out of laziness, contrary to the avatar situation.

    Sometimes I'll change my avatar to reflect my mood or whatever. However I do identify with this behaviour, I rarely change things because they sort of become part of my identity.

    It's the reason that I had the same name on msn messenger for roughly 7 years, it's only in the last few months I've left it to Kai. It's almost as if I've left behind my old identity to be truthful, this is where I am now, a new chapter within my life.

    I've been using the same nickname, avatar, and signature on other forums too and have never changed it. Is this has any relation of being loyal and persistent as SJ?

    I've been using forums for 10 years. I've lost count of the amount of forums I've joined and participated in. I made a list for another forum a few days ago of forums I check frequently, as in within a span of a week as of now. The list was about 8-9 forums. I usually don't pay much attention to avatars, titles or signatures. I don't do it as much for the personalization, but more for the effect of it, how other people will react to it.

    People keep telling me to actually like, personalize more. Haha. That's my lack of Fe.

    Yeah, I can relate. I don't have the same avatar forever, but I try to (purposely) keep the same avatar for a long time, so it becomes my identity for a while, then I change it if it's been a while. I don't like frequently changing avatars also because 1) I identify other posters by their avatars and also because 2) I think of the avatar as my identity and don't want to change it frequently.

    Well, I keep my portrait and nickname everywhere. It is me, and I don't hide behind the multitude of aliases. I stand proud with this name and face, now and forever.

    Also, I never take part in nonsense threads that have no point... like threads that try to hit 100 pages as fast as possible.

    Of the 2-ish years I've been on this forum, I've always had the purple flower as my avatar, and I probably won't ever change it. I know it is associated with my name, and it's a picture I took myself, so I feel it is representative of me. Plus, people compliment it all the time...I'd like to think that I just have good taste...lol
