I think you are right chase. It will die eventually and then pop up again once in a while. I had better hurry and get mine up so that when page two comes up, my pic will disappear and people can have time to recover.
I checked out the definition of "Avatar" and one definition is: "The embodiment of a concept or philosophy, often in human form".
The avatars that voodoocat, metroshane, chaseman and myself for that matter all seem to fit that definition.
So, I agree with chase and refuse to publish my real picture on the grounds that I may scare off members!
oh come on you chickens!
we all know that photographers hate having their own pic taken
so we're all in the anxiety together.
i go to sites where most of these threads are usually filled with teeny bopper girls so it would be a nice change to see some adult pics for once!
