I changed my avatar of a fiery vague silhouette of a head into an anime dude with red hair. Has your perception of me changed?

 

:sorcerer:

 

 

To show this is not purely spam, I shall propose a discussion on how visual representation forms impressions in a text-based communication form removed from face-to-face interaction.

 

Discuss (the former).

It looks like a chick, not a dude.

One billion b-balls dribbling simultaneously throughout the galaxy. One trillion b-balls being slam dunked through a hoop throughout the galaxy. I can feel every single b-ball that has ever existed at my fingertips. I can feel their collective knowledge channeling through my viens. Every jumpshot, every rebound and three-pointer, every layup, dunk, and free throw. I am there.

I didn't really get your old avatar, Atreides. I like the new one better.

 

Also, if folks aren't nice to Atreides, I might have to hurt them. :Eldar's looking mighty pissed about the reception of an old IP friend icon:

 

On the other hand, you've been around long enough that your avatar doesn't really change my perception.

 

However, I would like to say that it's been a long time since I've even entertained an avatar. Any suggestions for my new avatar? No, I won't use anime, as much as I appreciate how well others use it.

Mahdi! Mahdi! MAHDI! Bow before Muad'Dib! MAH....what was the question again?

 

EDit: Oh, yeah I remeber you. That name is a bit hard to forget. New avatar is okay, you just managed to make a change for more generic. Your previous one was more original. But whatever. I can't help but to think about Dune when I see your name. How about changing the avatar to reflect that?

 

Just tossing ideas here. Hope they hit something.

Geez, everyone changed their avatar, didn't they? (Including me, that is.)

 

For me, the avatar changes how I see them physically, but not my impression of them. Does that make sense?

 

For example: Darth Flatus (wherever he is). I visualized him as his avatar at the time, but in my mind he was still that weird green haired clown thing because that was his avatar when I first started posting. It's sort of like getting a new hair cut; you look different, but you don't seem different.

Don't forget that this is a general thread of image makeovers. I've very rarely spent a lot of time thinking of what avatar I'd use. I've spent the majority of my time, on every board, without any avatar at all. SO, when we're done giving the Atreides a hard time, maybe you guys would be so kind as to offer suggestions to yours truly regarding a new avatar.

You appear as a weirdo to me! :D

 

No, because you haven't had the new avatar long enough. You're still that old pixies rock album cover to me. With a bad attitude!

I actually thought your avvie was Eastwood at first. What's it supposed to be?

 

Oh, and Eldar; how about googling "Eldar" and seeing what comes up?

He is an average guy/superhero who weilds a shovel. He was born with a talent, and he uses his talent to fight crime with the rest of the gang.

Mus? is any number of vague, faceless, humanoid creatures in my mind.

Now that you mention it; most of my avatars have had their faces hidden.
