Generally, since the avatar is the most visual bit we get from people on forums, I do make a more than fair share of judgements based on them.
For instance, and don't take offense at this, but when someone uses something other than their own work, or even photoshoped pics, or a commisioned
pic from someonelike I'm a Marty, I do start out thinking a little less of them than I normally would,
Not that I stick with that idea, but it's what I get first off.
If you want someone who seems to get vibes off of avatars, check with ExtrAlien.
But, to be honest, i'm the same way with nicknames to. I like to see original stuff, not Superdestroyer1337 or something. But again, if they set
themselves aside from it, it's cool.
Heck, some people seem toset up accounts so they can show of their cool user name or avatar, it seems.
But you want a avatar I really have a problem with? Ever seen Asala's? I have tokeep reminding myself she's a mod.
