Time to ditch avatars?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I didn't have the guts to request a Mod help because everything was busy at first.

So when there's time, some helpful soul might help me out.
I'm talking about the one you had recently, up until a week or so ago.
Wasn't that David Byrne?

Sure, we all get sick of each other's avatars from time to time.
They are sort of like CV photos...
Sometimes I have a difficult time caring what someone writes if their avatar is too obnoxious (e.g., New Kid on the Block).
If no one was allowed one, I'd lose a nice visual cue, and I would feel more like I were reading a tedious academic paper. Then again, it would sort of level the playing field-- kinda like wearing a uniform to school.
Also, it's not always the avatar that might be annoying, but the username.
Granted, my avatar now (Rai) is a bit on the juvy side, but when the mood strikes, I can change it up whenever I want.
What can you do?--have everyone wear grey and chant the same slogan? Of course not.

Not me. None yet.

I was a Mallard with face.

Yeah, I'm with you. My bad.

So, who am I thinking of? :facepalm: :whip:

Maybe 'FreeSocrates'.

I don't know, I was really drunk at the time. :oops:
