Okay, so, as you guys can tell, I haven't been a member for very long. Actually, make that 15 minutes; anyway, I digress. The point of my post is this:

Am I the only one who goes through 15+ different avatars in a five minute span before settling on one?

I don't understand why, but I can never be satisfied with my avatar on forums and what not. I mean, I may just be weird -_-

I had to choose the ol' Mokou about to be caught unawares by Keine picture though, but I have a feeling it's going to get changed pretty soon.

Also, I feel like I'm in the right thread, because the nature of this post seems VERY off-topic (and a tad bit random) to me. Who knows *shrug* xD

No, you're wrong! I'm always indecisive about choosing my avatars. Usually, it'd even take me an hour until someone tells me that the icon I chose is fine. Honestly, just settle for something that will never disappoint you. =P For example, your favorite character.

I think you're right though, I believe this topic is random and not relevant to Nanoha. C:

Everyone's always welcomed in this website anyway.

Join us in the chat sometime, LOLIKNOW. :3

BUMP!

Indecisive, huh?

Yeah, that's me; especially when some kind of customization is involved. >_<

I used to change my character's armor color before nearly every round when my friends and I played Halo 3/Reach. It took me forever to choose a race when I first started playing Skyrim haha.

Late reply but i share your feelings, i really might be one of the most indecisive there are because i can go on photo bucket + google image search and search thousands of pics for hours and then settling on one and sometimes not even thousands is enough to find one among there for me to like it enough to use it lol XD i also have 600+ avatars in total for my messengers i used in the past, right now i'm running out of ideas since i used nearly everything i could think of using.

lol, that's pretty intense. I normally make a picture my avatar, decide it doesn't look impacting enough, and change it again.

Sometimes the quality may look bad and I'll be like, "ugh...gotta find another I guess."

I guess it would be comical from another person's perspective if they refreshed the page and kept seeing different pictures each time xD

I'm not nearly online often enough, but it actually IS amusing to see a different avatar with your name everytime I am online. I've been using mine since I registered here (and that's a long way back), as far as I know, but I use a different image in every board I use - or if I use one. But it's an interesting thing to notice, I'll be like "What avatar will I see today...!" everytime I see your name now. =D /random posting because of boredom

I think Brian as known as LOLIKNOW should just settle with an avatar that attracts the eye...rather something that gives a unique sense in an avatar/icon. I am indecisive about avatars as well, but I just happen to be extremely satisfied of mine because of well, matching avatars because I get to publicize my love for her. ;) So, yeah, I keep seeing you change your avatar every time I see you online, Brian. xDD

Lol, I should just settle on something visually unique, huh? I'll have to put more thought into getting one then; I'll hit the tank!

@Lae: Woot, at least it doesn't go unnoticed. It'll probably be different again tomorrow, I'm certain of it.

I'm just glad I only have 1 signature because I'd be changing that often as well xD
