Avatars provide a means to express one's character, demeanor, and personality, they also afford one the ability to "beat the bush" [so to speak] from time to time.

Avatars are great.

Some ats-member used to have this as his/her avatar... I can´t remember who had it...

Avatars don't suck, missing the Beer Store by 2 minutes sucks.

Creating your own avvy's is fun, it's a creative expresion for some.

BTW, I made this one. Fun man.

I think avatars are the greatest thing since the invention of fire.

They are signposts of the personality and there's some really interesting personalities out there. Every time someone changes their avatar, I take notice...especially WCIP's, lysergics and netchickens, to name a few.

Think of them as ATS heiroglyphs.

I find that the avatars are the only representation of the persons current feelings and emotions. Basicly it puts a face on the member. I don't judge people by their avatars but I use them to understand the persons stance in a subject. For example, If the guy has aliens in his avatar, he must have a strong opinion about aliens and believes in them (duhhh...). The image can be representative of interests, hobbies and current political stance.

I picked mine because of it's serious look that means I'm all buisness and no crap will be taken or given.

Avatars are essential in forums.

Looks like the majority is winning. I have a new computer, also, so bandwidth is not the problem. I like simple on the web. Again, I like this site but I charge it with having too much clutter.

I am just not into avatars. I think a good siganture with perhaps a small pic is more than enough.

Avatars reflect our personalities and define who we are.

I like them.

Personality aside *sorta*. The avatars are what make the ATS community
boards unique... without 'em, this place would be your typical
average message boad community.

And we can't have that, now can we?

Yep! Guess imman "avatar lover" too!

This site has some of the best Avatars I have seen.

I can't complain about the signatures either. Many forums out there allow outrageous abuse of signatures. One thing I like here, is that most posts are bigger than the sig's.

I cant' stand boards where sig's are bigger than posts and avatars.
That is unreadable

I use them to quickly locate some members responses in long threads if I'm just following their posts on a topic.

Or if I'm trying to review something I've posted it's very easy to scroll down the screen fast and find my distinctive background colour.

I do admit to blocking some members images if they move around too much and annoy me. I use "adblock" to remove stuff like that spastic image posted above.

I think Avatars are a nice way of tracking someone down, I use it a lot of the time in "some" forums, to see if a "certain" member has posted on them. Primarily those members who back up their view points with evidence, so that I can see if my work has already been done there.

It is a lot easier than finding a name and also it makes it look nice, many avatars are fantastic to look at and the whole page never takes more than 2seconds to download for me so all is well.

I was thinking about making a "Avatars rule!" thread but it looks like this one is doing the job already

Avatars are a form of self expression just like clothes or hair style.

I agree with Umbrax 100%.
