Indeed one of the best ways to deflect attacks is to make it look like they're succeeding. It's the software equivalent of playing dead. -- Joel Spolsky

I personally don't like looking at myself everytime I make a post, but from the feedback I have received, it seems that most members do like to see personal photos being used as an avatar. I can see that it adds a personal touch to one's posts. The selection of avatars available right now is very good; I wouldn't mind seeing some sports based symbols.

Sports icons is a good idea. I will have to make a note of that, but they will have to be general since I would end up having hundreds of sports to get pics for.

I would prefer to use another avatar (my favorite is an adaptation of a Linux penguin), and have my photo available in a specific place - maybe even linked on every message. But then, that is just my own opinion.

Another suggestion for a category are the characters from Mortal Kombat. An old game I realize, but a good one (in my opinion). I am sure there are other Mortal Kombat fans out there. Right?

Do not worry, it is only half the time now since Seraph shares it with you ;)

As a Platinum member you can request a morph, edit or merge to your avatar to have it more to your tastes.

I am sure there are, but it seems that they are not within this Community, but we do have one or two of them in the 'Fight' category.

I like having my photo as an avatar. I belong to several forums where you must use their avatars. I like the fact that here it is possible to use a real photo. Of course there are some places I post to that I wouldn't want my real photo, the harassment factor is too high. Here I never worry about negative comments, this is one of the friendliest places to post and I do miss coming here as often as I used to.

I agree with Malexander. Though I like having my photo displayed so that other's can put a face to what I post, it is not my favorite thing to see my picture every time I see a post of mine. Also, though I like to provide a glimpse of what I look like along with my posts, I can't necessarily tell anything about someone else by what they look. I just like seeing everyone's faces along with their posts, and it seems that some people feel that way too. I feel it gives it more of a personal touch, though I do like other avatars as well. I can kind of get a feel for the personality and/or interests of someone who uses symbols and other images for their avatars. I really like all of the avatars I have seen on the forum, but I do like pictures the most.
