Okay...
so sometimes when I'm reading posts I picture you epoples as your avatars.  That seems really weird, but it happens.
How bout you?

But you probably already knew that.

Yup. Can't help it, it is the only visual clue to work with. why I tried to get an avatar, that looks more like me than say Asuka would.
Have Fun

yeah, it happens to me. i usually need a picture to go with a name, even if it's something obscure.

Actually, my avatar looks a lot like me because it's drawn that way.  My friend Andrew made a webcomic of his daily life, featuring his housemates and friends, and I used the Jon, er, I mean, Pi character from the strip as the basis of my avatar.  I use the same one on flickr.

Actually, Pixie, I usuallysee you as Neji because his picture is bigger, and draws attention easier o.o...

But yeah, I see what you mean  :lol:
I do that a lot... o.o...

*can't help but picture CardCaptorConnor-EX as Cloud*  :shock:

This is why I dislike signatures, particularly those with gifs in them.  They just distract people from the content.  I actually prefer the format of sites like Metafilter, Metachat, and the various imitators which run on the same code, because they have no avatars or signatures.  This allows people to engage eachother's ideas better, IMO.

Yep. :D I picture the people I know, Princess, Tom, Guspacho, ect. because I've met alot of the people from the forums, the icons don't really mean anything. :)

I think my avatar is actually quite striking in its resemblence.  Behold:

The bunny in the middle of the first frame is supposed to be me.  
This actually is me, at my desk, last week.  

Pretty accurate, eh?

Wow, it really is a remarkable similarity!

As for my avatar, I am Vincent. I mean.....in the minds of anyone who went to Kumoricon, if they remember me, then I'm Vincent, since that's who I cosplayed, and I haven't actually seen anybody else outside the con, sadly. T_^

On topic, totemo_oishii is the only person here I recall having spoken to at the con, and she has a picture of herself in the signature, so I actually picture her saying stuff.  On the other extreme, I really do see princessfrodo as a kawaii chibi Asuka, winking at us.

Neko_Chan, do you suffer from the same condition as Meg?  She's embedded in a loaf of bread.

Good grief, so you are either something to eat, or a used panty machine Totemo?

And the little pachenko balls go rattling around his mind.

I would surely hope that you think of me when you see my avatar because.. it's a picture of me. :(

If not, then I would have failed at being.. picturable. Or something.

We think of you but with those little wing type things on your head like Mercury the Greek messenger god's helmet but they are on your head and you don't deliver messages you follow the gods around and document when ever they talk to goddesses under 1800 years old.

Did I?  I must have forgotten about that.  :)  I do recall circling the parking lot looking for a space, with "Cruel Angel's Thesis" playing.  

These days I listen to my 120 track anime themesong megamix at the gym mostly.  The Love Hina opening track is really great when I'm on the elyptical machine, as is the closing credits track from Banner of of the Stars!

I do this all the time. I just learn to know people on forums by their avatars. Needless to say when someone switches theirs it throws me off. x_x But I completely know what you're saying.

But in no way am I a black and red hedgehog. XD Sure I cosplay as him, but I don't look like him.

you could g baco to the first one you had when we though you were a 3 foot tall boy dressed as a magician.  That' why I let you wear the magicians cape at the meeting so you'd feel right at home.
