I have my real picture(s) up on my profile. I'd use it as my avatar if I wasn't afraid of scaring little children or making grown women cry.<br />
It's better to look at a drunken rubber duck.
just proved my point . . thank you.
I have a sneaky suspicion not everyone here is photogenic
You're free to, but many of us like the anonymity of EP. Makes it different from Facebook, for example.
Why? I use mine..but, people use what they are comfortable with...the joys of the internet. Besides, I kind of like the different avis..they are fun.
I have a picture of me with my grandson and I get bored with me, so I use other things, but they are all a part of me.
It is now for me to change mine. I have some idea's.
Yeah its hard remember who ya chatting with without a face to the name
this is my real one
It won't prove anything. People can use other people's photos. I personally favor avatars like yours and mine because they are easy to remember. I associate you with a cat throwing a punch, NightBirdFlying with a bird over an abstract background, SingWe with two cartoon people, and ChalkZoneSNAP with a blue cartoon character.
Some people just don't feel comfortable posting their own pictures .. it's their option.<br />
I think it's OK .. we can be creative with our avatars ...
If you are comfortable doing so
