I know not all people are easily confused as I but several people are using duplicate Avatar's to identify themselves with...

There are 17 different catagories under the Avatar collection and it would seem that we have plenty to choose from.

I personally as other's have told me they responded to a posting thinking it was one person and then when they got a strange come back after their post they went back and looked up the name and then realized that the picture was not the person they thought it was...it was the same Avatar used but different name...

I know I use the picture as a way of recognizing who I'm talking to and I think others do to...

So If you see you are using a picture that someone else has been using, please consider changing your Avatar to another...it gets really confusing for me and other's on the network...

We won't throw a fit if you decide not to change, but everyone here is so special I know I don't want to get you confused with someone else...so please consider helping keep this simple minded redhead straight...

I knew there was a reason I always liked pictures in the books...read?...there are words there?

I guess I must be the only one here who likes Corona beer enough to use it as an avatar biggrin.gif !

As a fellow red head wink.gif , I have to agree.....it would be nice to limit the pics to one person each. I tend to look at the pics and associate them with a person. On one discussion board I was on, once you picked an avatar, that avatar was listed as 'taken' and frozen so no one else could take it.....maybe that could work here. I know for the pic I use, I mentioned to Paul how I admired the pic and asked if I could use it for an avatar. He then added it to the list. It's not that I'm upset to see others using it.... I guess I kind of see avatars like our signatures, something personal reflecting the person. Just some thoughts. smile.gif

I add my vote. It can be quite confusing when multiple people use the same avatar. Mine is my own, taken from the cover art on my book, because I wanted to be sure that I had a unique avatar that noone else could take. I know I identify someone by the avatar before I do the name when I'm reading the boards.

I've seen this problem. Seems there are two Elspeths out there. tongue.gif And that's not the only instance.

I use my own, as you can see. Something that identifies me, because it was made by me. It's really not that hard to do. Get your hands on a copy of Photo Shop and go to town. smile.gif

wow, I didn't even think to look at names. I even got a name wrong and the picture was different. I hope changing mine doesn't confuse people too much. I am pretty happy with the one I have.. so I will leave it alone. Thanks for the note on practicing safe avatar. lol

Golly, hope I don't confuse folks too much since I change my avatar quite frequently. But then I am fairly easy to identify anyway since no one else has the Galicia flag and nifty crown thingy that is prominently displayed below my avatar.

I know the feeling Mike, maybe that's one reason I change mine so often. Well, besides the fact it help shows I am a well rounded individual, if not shooting cats, then drinking beer. tongue.gif
