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.

Time to ditch avatars?

Post by Otis » Wed Jun 11, 2014 1:11 am

Looking at the same silly pic over and over and over sometimes past hundreds to thousands of times does get tired. How's about we kill 'em or do something less boring to distinguish ourselves. Or maybe nothing.

What say you, ladies and laddies?

I don't really notice people's avatars anymore. You can go into the Control panel and turn them off if they annoy you.

LoL! I assume he means he's immune to seeing them.

I love the avatars!

I remember causing mass confusion on K440 once, when The Dragon lead about 10 people to use the same avatar of another poster. Hurt my eyes too.

Avatars are good IMO. I find them to be a good way to get a full picture of a poster and possibly the way they perceive their attitude to come across.
