The Personality Of Avatars And SignaturePics

JAYCZero 09-05-2004 02:38 PM
Alright I just had to ask this question I don't mean to sound like
Nut lol I just had an strong urge to develop this thread so here goes .But don't you People ever get that feeling that when
you are posting replies on threads along with other members
and look at the Avatars or Sigpics you kind of feel that you are
talking to the Cartoon Character depends if it's Anime Characters
or could be a Character or someone from the Movie. It's a Crazy
feeling but just feel free to post you comments on this.
Come on..Don't be Shy Wink !

Not really. I think they are there only to show our personality, or to show what characters we like. Although I can see why you would think that. Wink

By the way, I think this thread would be better in the JFK Mark Airport...

Well, you'd be talking to a beaten up Roger and a melancholy Spike. Tongue I agree with Trisa, though. Like I wouldn't look at your avatar and think, "I'm talkin' to Cloud." But I might think that you share some similar traits with Cloud or merely that you think he's cool.

That's happened to me some times...it's really cool Big Grin

Well, I don't look at avatars and think I am talking to them, but rather their personalities. I hope people do the same to me.

My cowbell avatar is completely random. Who in the world would put up a repeating image of a man hitting a cowbell. (well, SNL and the guy who made the picture).

That tends to be my personality. As soon as I find an image that refelct my randomness nature and that surpasses my current one, then it shall be mine.

LOL! Yeah that was Hilarious Neko.. A Beaten Up Roger and
a Melancholy Spike Lol..Well yeah I also mean that too ,
I mean you have the Avatar of your Favorite Character and
share some similariteis and talents.

Naa but that would be impossible and out of proportion to think
that if I see an Avatar and Think I'm talking to the Cartoon
Character although it sounds funny but that's not what I meant
,what I meant was that you ever get that kind of feeling ,
because the Character represents each member.
It's kind of having a poster in your room

Lol Evan isn't that something ! well I guess I'm not alone..
BUT I DON'T THINK I'M TALKING TO AN AVATAR!...Ok I guess
that somes it up, yeah and Henrich I'm curious that Avatar
is Will Ferril from Old School right , I thought I was speaking to him
the Whole time ! lol only kiddin.

Really? Well, I guess it's nice to know that images can represent a part of ourselves. I just hope some people don't take too far. Regardless, I haven't had that happen to me, so I guess I won't know that feeling. Smile

That's kind of wierd they would think that. Roll Eyes So if that were true, everyone would be talking to Osaka instead of Trisa (the girl in my avatar), and also, the eyes really would be watching you. That's kind of scary, but also very funny. Big Grin

Later,
Trisa

Actually I meant it was me that thought I was partly talking to the avatars....>_<

I get that feeling sometimes to. Like in evan's case I feel like I'm talking to either Zeingata or the Pink Panther (his current avatar if I'm correct). Its a weird feeling

When I'm at a forum I look at their avater (Not the signuture.) and if the character's (If there is one at all.) gender is female then I assume I'm chatting with a girl. And if the avy is something like Hellsing I jump to conclusions that they're a very serious, mellow person. However, the opsoite if they have something like Megatokyo. Yes, I know it's judging, but... Whatever.

Yeah, I always through you were a girl, Trisa. 'Til I checked your profile.

And, by the way... If anybody at these forums thinks I'm a dog, well, then... Run don't walk to your nearest hospital!

See ya,

Well Lol Neko I'm glad that you get what I'm saying
Green_Bird 09-05-2004 06:19 PM
Yeah...I kind of get that feeling....I identfy that person's personalty or that person by their avatars....Sometimes....but not all the time....ya know? But other times I don't. But other times....if it's like from a show I know....when I read the post I kind of hear that voice in my head Shocked ....Yeah I know i'm crazy. I really don't do that with sig pics though....only avatars....

But then there's the fact that some people just have their favorite characters up. So Those I just like posters in a room to me.

But the reason I chose Sanzo.....
1. I joke about being the female Sanzo alot...really....DO NOT annoy me....I mean it! And then there's my friend's little brother that was attached to me for the days that we went to visit...I was really annoyed then....he kept wanting to play with me....
2. I like Saiyuki....
3. There's really not enugh room in a 100x100 avatar to fit everyone in there.
4. Favorite character....

Heh, yeah, that happens to me too. On a somewhat related note, when I see people with an avatar that I recognize, I tend to act a bit more talkative/friendly with them. I was at a band forum the other day and I saw someone with a Cowboy Bebop avatar/sig and I immediately brought up how I had been listening to a CB song.

Some people made that mistake when I first joined Paradigm. In fact, a few members still do to this day, but it's nothing that is of concern to me. Anyway, I believe it was the avatar and the name "Trisa" that triggered the gender confusion. However, you shouldn't judge people by their avatar and their sig. Who knows, maybe the person is different than what he/she has for an avatar. Wink

I guess it's because that person has the same interests as yourself. However, the person who doesn't have an avatar that people recognize, can also have the same interests. As the old saying goes, "Don't judge a book by its cover." Big Grin

Now I sound old. Laughing

Laughing It's true though (er, that assumptions aren't always accurate, not that you're old Tongue ). Heh, yeah, or "Don't judge a book by what its cover lacks." I think we're starting to get deep and philosophical now. XD
Darkside 09-05-2004 07:57 PM
with all this talk about avatrs and sigs and emotions and such, maybe we should have a thread were people try to guess your personaliyoro emtions by what you have as a sig or avatar. Its just a suggestion I'm throwing out however.
