Hotguy you need an avatar to add gravitas and persona to your posts.
I often puzzle over how a simple avatar can have such a powerful effect on how I perceive a poster.
I feel like both my username and avatar are a smoke screen covering my true persona. /avatar hyper-analysis
your avatar and your posting style are highly consistent, but before you got an avatar, i took your long winded (but informative) posts much less seriously than i do now.
tell us the broad strokes of what kind of avatar elicits what kind of perception
Sorry at work.
Umm...my posting style and avatar are meant to be complimentary, but they're only representative of a small part of me IRL. I figured their were too many try to be constantly funny posters. (My original Bill Evans tar was a more sardonical style that I abandoned lest I be judged as a cynical asshole.)
There are myriad threads analyzing avatars in the lounge (e.g. the once popular "Comment on the avatar above you" and monthly discussion of which tars give away shitpoasters [i.e. Mean Girls, Simpsons, Philosophers (bar JRR), American Psycho, Friends, et cetera]. So, I'd rather not venture deeper though I have a lengthy screed about avatars constantly floating in my head.
