I still don't look like my av, but I have started changing it more often. Now that I've been here a while, I can stop really associating the *specific* av of someone w/ that person, and can just kinda go by style. You get what I mean?
*taps chin* you know what I realized? I've *never* had an avatar that even remotely relates to my screenname. How very odd...

I ALWAYS associate people with their avatars. I don't know why. And I do use them as sort of a personality thing. I get so confuzzled when people change theirs!
My pet peeve is when someone posts about their avatar and then changes it, it's like, "I want to see it!"

I just realized something today. I think I'm more like Taiki than I am like Yaten (that is, of the anime characters I know of, I think I act most like Taiki, especially of the Sailor Moon ones) and so my avatar does fit even though I don't look a thing like Taiki.

Sylph and I don't look anything alike. The personality similarities make up for it. XD

I've always wondered why no one here uses a real life pic as their avatar, actually. Why is that? Is there a rule or something? Many forums I've been to, a lot of people have their RL pic. Yet SMU it seems like no one at all does. x_X

I don't because I'm not comfortable with posting my real picture on the Internet. It's not that I think I'm ugly or anything, it's more that I don't feel safe doing so. Also, I like seeing Taiki's head everytime I make a post. :wink:

I thought that was the South Park one... your current one is the American Dad taco.

I swear, everything is taco propaganda these days. Even ATHF had taco references.

Oh crap, I forgot I changed it to the American Dad one. ^^;;;;

And yes, everything is taco propaganda nowadays. Damn everyone from indirectly advertising where I work. >.<

I don't look like The King, but sometimes I act like him.

I think most of us don't use RL pix because it's the internet and it's supposed to be fun and games.

I don't care for tacos, though.
Things I think Are Funny Early in the Morning: If Batman were a Smurf: "Quick, Robin! We must smurf down to the Batcave and smurf the Batplane! Then we must smurf the batsmurf so we can smurf where the Joker is smurfing!"

The Croonerism Spate (explanations upon request)
Be careful with this one, there is a bit of a pun involved. Dr. Spooner described his visit to a castle: "In the center of the fortress was the Palace Court. The gated entrance to this area was the court palace."

'Cause I AM Musashi!

Errr...

Simple.
My pictures are too sexy to use as avatars. ^_~

... A-anou...

I used a real-life pic of Scary the cat, though.

'Sides, I just like making avatars with Musashi/other members of the Roketto-dan. xD
Fine! I'm going to use a picture of... random cats!

I must admit I haven't actually read the whole five pages of posts. :oops: But I just wanted to say I do that a lot...That is... associete the avatar with the person. That is why it's weierd for me to see people change avatars. And I often somehow think people look like their avatars :oops: But I guess each person picks an avatar that in someway represents him (her). So maybe you are just a little bit as your avatar :P

Oh well...My avatar is...the person I love the most :P Myself. Just like Garfield said: "Narcissism, use it or lose it." (Actually it was the only resised picture on my computer now.)
