    Does anyone here automatically associate someone's avatar with the physical appearance or personality of that person?

    For example, I have a mental image of Buzzbeak having a big moustache and smoking a pipe, and as Lance Halberd as...well Lance Halberd.

    Yeah, just wondering if it's just me.

    *looks at his own avatar* God i hope not.

    I dunno, i associate the avatar with the poster which can make things a bit disorienting when they change it but i think the fact that we have an active picture thread helps keep things seperated.

    Only in some cases, like the ones you mentioned.
    That said, I hope people realise I'm not actually an anti-social pyromaniac.

    Yeah, I get really confused when people change their avatar and sig at the same time. I've done it once, but I'm happy with my current avatar.
    Wait...you're not?

    I in no way look like my Headmaster namesake. I'm 6'2", bald, and have a goatee.

    Hell there are times when I actually WISH that I was self important anthromorphic blue steam locomotive that lived on a small British Island with an appalling safety record and insurance premiums higher than Louis Armstrong.....

    I'm not though.

    I wish I could have a girlfriend that looks like my avatar. Life must be great if you have looks though.

    I have sigs and avatars turned off. It's more work-friendly that way.

    Damn, I thought you were a self-loving girl, even after hearing you over XBL :( 

    The fact you aren't Revolver Ocelot breaks my heart.

    As long as you're not John Kresse from The Karate Kid part III, I'm cool with that.
