Why do people put pictures of themselves on their avatar??
Just wondering cos sometimes when I'm reading through posts I wonder why people want photos of themselves on here.

I'm not criticising that or anything, just wonder why that's all.

Discuss!

I want people to recognise me...and buy me a drink at the Scottish areas in Motherwell this weekend. :wink:

I don't know really, it's certainly not for any of the reasons that you have above, so I won't be voting. I mean it's not exactly the most flattering picture of me. It's just me in Torquay after several drinks.

I personally prefer it when you can put a face to the people that are posting. I find the cartoon ones a bit boring really and you don't get to see what the person looks like.

I'm afraid I'm not voting here, as I don't have my picture on here (although obviously I look exactly like my avatar)and the only option for not having my picture on here doesn't fit me...

I think it's nice to see people's pictures on their avatars and Moy is right - will be nice to see people like Bruce (who will probably regret the offer of buying a round...). I want an option for "I don't have my picture on my avatar but I don't have a problem with other people doing so..."

I had my pic on here for ages...mainly so people would recognise me and buy me a drink....and it worked quite a few times :D
I keep on meaning to take another one.....but then I found the cartoon quavers and thought that was pretty appropriate.....maybe get a new one at the area :shock:

I went for a cartoon avatar cos I haven't got a decent pic of myself to put here, and I don't want to have to look at myself everytime I post! Eeyore's much cuter than me anyway! :lol:
Certainly don't have a problem with other people putting pics up - will make it easier to find them in the bar at contests...

You need to add another option for those of us who do have their picture on it, but for none of the above reasons. Just because...

Well, i started off with a cement mixer and felt that the only natural progression was to a picture of the myself...it has prevented many people from wondering up to building sites and asking for Big Twigge....one day it may return :twisted:

I know I said I don't have a problem with peeps putting their photos on here, but what I do find strange is the avatars with TWO people in them! Whats that about? :?

I found it handy when I went to my 1st tMP social last year and didn't know anybody

Hmm, I don't know whether to take that as a compliment or not. I don't think I will!!! I suppose it makes a change having a photograph of my face for once instead of my........ Only joking!!! Besides, you don't know what photos I have of you :!: :twisted: :lol:
