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.

Was not aware this much thought sometimes went into avatar selections.

This is all subconscious. But I've just know made the observations reach surface level.

Serious, kind of quiet/shy geeky bro with a kind heart (but who becomes VERY outgoing after a short period of getting used to a new environment). May or may not wear Owns and frequently wears new balance sneakers :D.

I put zero thought into username and avatar.

Yes (as did I w/ my name), but they still speak volumes about you. As I'm sure you can attest.

The submitted avatar is 173 pixels wide and 150 pixels high. Avatars must be at least 20 pixels wide and 20 pixels high, but no larger than 130 pixels wide and 130 pixels high.


Now I remember why I never added an avatar.
