After much dragging of feet, I finally got around to changing my avatar pic.

I'm curious as to how often others do so.

Hi Mike! You small wild dog looking thing. Welcome to Boardgamegeek. Newbies are always welcome. Don't be shy. Soon enough you'll begin to recognize everyone by their pics!

I've had the same avatar for heaven knows how many years. I changed twice for a short amount of time to honor Harry Houdini and Roald Amundsen before switching back. My philosophy on the matter is that your avatar is your face and when you change it people suddenly don't know who you are anymore.

If you change your avatar, you aren't the same user to me anymore (I honestly won't recognize you)

Just the once. I tried to make mine even more annoying; I think I've succeeded.

I don't think I've EVER changed mine. It may have originally been a static image and I added the glowy eyes later (I can't remember), but other than that, I think the only time I've changed it was for an occasional holiday dress-up (and even then it was the same avatar, just with a Santa hat or something).

When people change their avatars, it's almost like going into the witness protection program

There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone. Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow.

To seek the sacred river Alph, to walk the caves of ice, to break my fast on honey dew and drink the milk of paradise... I had heard the whispered tales of immortality, the deepest mystery, from an ancient book I took a clue.

My avatar is a fixed point in space and time.

I don't want happiness by halves, nor is half of sorrow what I want. Yet there's a pillow I would share, where gently pressed against a cheek like a helpless star, a falling star, a ring glimmers on the finger of a hand.

Mine was the sign for the Carlyle Motel for a time, then it was the 66 Bowl but I finally settled on the Western Capri. They've all been neon signs

I have a Christmas version with a hat and snow flakes. But otherwise, I don't change. If I do, all of my jokes about illegal nuclear programs in my garage won't make any sense. Plus, I won't recognize myself.

I changed mine when Gren Doogan (a user here) drew me a version of the avatar I had previously been using. There are a few of his drawings about, we call them grenatars. I don't expect to change mine again.

Other than that one-off change, I'll sometimes use a themed variant at hallowe'en and Christmas.

I will definitely admit to having sat for like 5 minutes watching your cat punch my screen. I have done so multiple times.
