I'll give you a hint: I'm not RoboCop! lol!

But yeah, I also imagine people as their avatars. I normally have a pic of myself, because of this, but RoboCop is just so sexy I couldn't resist.

so does this mean that people see me as some mysterious dancing female shadow up against a disco-like backdrop?

I generally associate people with their avatars… Though sometimes I picture them with their old avatars. I'll always see Volte as the duck, even if he has some kid now.

And Aurora, I still associate you with that 3-D Elf-looking avatar you used to have. lol!

I identify myself with my avatar. I become angered when I look in the mirror and don't see Pac-Man.
Why hello there.

Me too, whenever I remembered I wasn't really Ian Anderson I had to cry in the corner for a while.

New one makes me feel good about myself though.
Hey buddy, you should be a Russian Cosmonaut, and here's why.

Of course, I don't have that problem…

No comment

(Wait, no comment is a comment, right… which means I haveto say… comment… but that means I have to leave one… and ‘comment’ by itself isn't really a comment…
…now I'm really confused)

PARADOX =O


Yeah, I tend to identify people by their avatars. And you know, I do picture Terminal as a Coke can, Shplane as a Black Mage Nazi, and I even always picture Pastel as Lila from her comic, to name a few…
It's also easier for me to recognize some people at first by their avvies, so I tend to get confused if they change it a lot (until I'm used to the kind of stuff they post, then I know.)

Yeah, I identify alot of people by their avi. Midge, Terminal, Shplane, Zero, etc. It makes it easier for me to glance at an avi ,in order to tell who the person is, instead of having to read their name constantly. If I see an avi I don't recognize I get confused and think “oh hey a new person” then glance at their name and go “…oh…” but if the person changes their avi to something similar to their previous one then it's not that confusing. Course..I'm one of the few that's constantly changing their avi but I tend to try to change to different “self portraits”.

I don't think people look like their avatars but I normally do think they are the gender of their avatar. And normally I'm wrong. I should know better.

I've never seen a real pic of Marin

Heres a pic of me:



I'm all personality and no person.

I've met Marine.

I am now blind and have to be fed through a tube every six hours.

I've been mistaken online for a man more times than I can count. It probably has something to do with the fact that I usually use male avatars (they're always my own sodding drawings though, and usually my own characters!)… in my defence I'd point out my username was usually incredibly girly (I mean, anything with the word “Pixie” in is a chick, surely?). But no. This information only made people think I was a gay man.

SIGH.





What? I have a thing for scruffy men! :( It's not my fault…!
Also, there are lots of cross-gender roleplayers. I'm hardly in the minority…


*is apparently a gay man*

(do gay men have boobs?)
Alaka-bwee-oop! Old school.

I can use boy avatars because my name is still a dead giveaway. lol! (Though I have had one person mistaken me for a boy in the past….somehow.)

Silly Pixie. All men have boobs, gay and straight. It's just that most of them (or at least the skinny ones) haven't got theirs full of fatty tissue and mammary glands.

I snapped a good digital photo of Jim Carey in a “Bruce Almighty” commercial. I liked it, probably because it looks like he's about to shove his head into the screen.

Wonder if I'm posting beyond the grave, eh? Or maybe a dystopian future? Oooo.
