Some of you are consistant and I appreciate that. I can't remember all those darn names. Pictures help. But some of you, argh, you go and change your profile pics and it drives me crazy! Just a few minutes ago I was reading a post by some obnoxious jerk (I don't want to give him away but his name rhymes with "annoying obnoxious jerk") and I thought "wow, what a jerk, haven't seem him around before" and then I noticed his name, and it was one I actually remembered (rare event for me) and I said to myself "ahhh, him, of course."

So stop, just stop, please, ok?

Poll
Will you, have you, changed your profile picture?
I have never changed and will never change my profile picture.
I have never changed my profile picture, but there is a tiny chance I may in the future.
I changed it once but never again, I promise.
Ok, maybe I changed it once or twice but I'm really trying to stick with this one, get off my back!
I change it whenever I feel like it buddy. You gotta problem wit dat?
Profile picture? I don't need no stinking profile picture!

Re: I strongly object to people changing their profile pictures!!!
Ah, that's funny. I like the new picture, btw. Very subtle change.

Mine has not changed for a while (and given circumstances seems appropriate) but hell I have changed it whenever I thought it was funny.

Although I reserve the right to change mine whenever it seems appropriate, I am too lazy and it will probably remain unchanged for the foreseeable future.

It's painful when someone changes their avatar. I have to relearn who they are.

I did it once as part of a PbF game of High Frontier. Around the same time, someone made a "How recognizable are you?" geeklist. Turns out the new avatar had attracted a lot of attention, in part (ok, wholly) because it was a picture of Carmen Electra wearing a jetpack.

I did change it back to my current one, despite a slight pang of reluctance. I feel bad using someone else's butt to get noticed. If people want to appreciate my actual butt, I'd be happy to change my avatar to a picture of me, scantily clad and wearing a jetpack, but so far no one has asked.

    I changed mine briefly when Gygax passed away, but other than that I've had the same one since '06.

Didn't really have a good answer for me.

I have changed it a couple times, but for a specific purpose and limited time. Other then that I have used and will use the same thing for many years.

Ah... but it's very important to me that I remember people. That way, down the line when they do something stupid for the hundredth time I can say something like "That's almost as bad an idea as the time you told me I could just not care."

Plus it drives me to distraction because I usually remember the name vaguely, just enough to remember that I should know the person, but not enough to actually recall anything useful without the familiar avatar.

I will change my Avatar on a given holiday (or a less frequently a whim).
Sometimes I will change it for longer periods if I'm hosting a PBF game or for Christmas.

Its like this. People need to read. So if we all change our avatars occasionally, people will learn names instead of pictures. I'm just doing my part when I swap out my avatar every few months.

If you've ever participated in a giant no-shipping math trade exchange - like the one at Spiel - you quickly learn the value of *never* changing your avatar. "I quickly found you because I recognized the doggie" is something I already heard more than once. Not sure if they were referring to my face or the printout of my avatar but still ...

Perhaps to avoid confusion, we should only change our profile picture to that of another user's.

Uh, strange long-haired dude wearing sunglasses, I was joking. She said she changed her avatars so I was joking that I didn't know who she was.
