Yep (I had originally made it as my IRIX login icon in '93 or '94); joined in January 2005, but it took me like a month to earn enough to afford one. In those days, kids, you couldn't just show up, say hi, and be given the money!

Yes, part of the gg I used to buy this avatar was earned by submitting the pic it came from (Survive!).

More or less so yes. Got an avatar 2004-01-24 11:30:25. Just the burning eye back then, right side up. Flipped it upside down for some reason I can't remember some years ago and added rain just last week due to depressing weather here in Sweden.

I have been here a bit over 10 years and my Avatar has always been a Meerkat. Though which picture of a Meerkat has changed a time or two.

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.

Yes, joined the site on January 13, 2008 and acquired enough to purchase my avatar sometime between September, 2008 and January, 2009. Have had the same one since!

Yes. I got the GG to buy my avatar by slaving in the salt mines known as geekmodding. Then when I had enough, I looked on my PC to see what images I had. For some reason, I had this suave, sophisticated portrait in my pics - and I used it. That was probably in the fall of 2007.

Sometimes at Xmas I swap it out for one with the same pic, but with a Santa hat and snow falling.

I'm pretty sure I've only had the one avatar. I can't remember what year I got it though. Not the year I joined (2005), since I didn't have the cat at the time. Probably since 2009?

Yes, I still have my original avatar. It's in a file, entitled "Avatars and GIFS".

But the one I use on this site now is only getting close to 2 years old.

Edit: See? Still got it.

I didn't get an avatar until far later though as I remember getting the geek gold through picture moding.

Pretty sure this is the first avatar I uploaded. Saved my geekpennies, bought the avatar, wanted something cool and game-oriented, learned how to make an animated .gif, wrote a program to render go stones that move, and there it has been ever since. 11 years and counting.

I've used others for periods but yes is the original. I don't know when I joined exactly, the start date listed in my profile was set after some server boing, hiccup, or ping. 2002 ish is right I think, but earlier than December. *shrug* Can we just say "a long time ago."

No this is not my "first" avatar. My first one was bozo the clown smoking a pipe. I'm still partial to it. I use it for other site avatars now and then.



I joined in 2001, but bought my first avatar in March 2005. For a while I was averse to buying one....I changed it to the one you see now on June 2005. I remember because it was right after playing Frischfleisch for the first time

Ahh, I take that back. That was my second Avatar, this was my first Avatar:



Good old Box...Fish, Plankton, and Protein from the sea. It's my job!

I've been replacing one pixel in my avatar each week with a pixel of the same color, so it really depends on your opinion of the Ship of Theseus.

But in reality, my first avatar was based on this pic:



So different avatar, same character. I changed it for "Chit Chat Change Your Avatar Day" one year and liked it enough to make it permanent.

Nope.

I started with one that had books in it, but changed over to the moon on all my accounts.

Searching my computer, I don't think I even have it any more. Time to go digging in the Old Tech.

I used my face for a brief period when I first joined, but have used the crest ever since. It's the crest for Joyce, my family name. Of course, I've only been around here since 2015 so no longevity records around here

Yep, the same swirling wine glass since 2004. I uploaded a few pics, some game aids and even did some modding; 30GG was hard to come by back then.
