    I often change my avatar or did when I used another software. The lifespan of my avatar never exceeded over a week and it constantly changed due to me being a designer and liking change. Why does it bother you when a user changes their avatar? Hate is such a strong emotion, why the hatred? Just curious to know the reasoning why.

    *waits for peggy to enter* :D

    If it happens once a month or so it doesn't really bother me. I think users that write in big fat font are probably causing more annoyance.

    LOL because I first remember users by their avatar, then (if liked) I memorize their name .

    I don't like when people use large fonts to emphasis their post.

    I personally don't "hate" when someone changes their avatar. But I can see where you are coming from. For me, I can relate to people's avatars as forum members easier than relating to their username. For instance I see dutchbb and that infamous cat avatar, it's almost like his trademark here at xenForo. I see that avatar and know it's dutchbb without even seeing his username. Same as steven s, whatever "chimax" is (I'm assuming beer), a quick glance of the avatar and I know who's statement, remark, or opinion I'm reading, again without referring to a username.
    However, if someone wants to change up their avatar every 20 mins, by all means fill your boots. I'm going to support that, I may not recognize who you are, but I'm not going to hold it against you :)

    It's fine with me if you feel you need/want to change your avatar every 5 sec.
    my point is avatar do represent you. In addition to that, it make it easier to navigate your work for us as a community
    In the end is up to the user to keep/change their avatar.

    thanx @trip for your thoughtful comment

    Or Comic Sans... *shudder*

    By the way, just wondering...is there a way to gradually change your avatar, as opposed to doing it suddenly? lol

    Every 5 seconds? Now that is someone with too much time on their hands.

    You're right, your av should represent you. I'm pretty careful to choose av's that do just that. :)
