Too many users with the same avatar.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

It is easiest to identify people via their avatar, then you can get use to their personality and subjects they are good at, which add more value to interaction with the community and strengthens it on the whole.

 

Here there are too many people using the same avatars and it requires effort to get to know them.

For me, with my old eyes, I can hardly grasp the image in some avatars.

I know a picture is worth a thousand words, but some become circles of confusion.

Frankly, I find the printed word far more informative, but thats just me.

I do enjoy reading so many informative posts though.

It's great to be here.

Many of us choose avatars provided by the site. I have no trouble in recognising members, simply because I use their name as recognition, not avatars.

It's mostly because many users don't particularly care about their avatar and stick with whatever pops up first.

 

If I didn't have to screen new users avatars and for spam signatures, I'd turn off their visibility  as its just noise and slower to load on a mobile device.

How do I change the Avatar I've been designated with when I joined? I love dogs

I liked it better when only those who chose an avatar had one, and the others didn't.  I would not have put a loaf of bread for my avatar but i didn;t like getting one assigned that i hadn;t chosen, and i don't like the fact that many people have the same one.  I identify people by their name, but a picture stands out more, so if many people have a kitchen aid or a bunch of knives or a bunch of bottles of oil, i don;t realize at first that they're different people, which entirely defeats the purpose of avatars.  I put my bread picture, but would rather have had none.  But i REALLY didn;t want one from a list.  Makes no sense.

^ Agreed! I think it's best to not have any at all for most people. Mainly, the 'Here today, gone tomorrow' types. I'm guessing most of the regulars here that stick with one of the default avatars would rather have nothing at all, too. 

 

Some people aren't visual learners. I'm sure other, non-visual learners don't think much about this subject. I am one, so it bothers me sometimes. Sometimes I have to slow down or go back and re-read the names of who's posting when a bunch of people in a thread all have the same avatar.

I did get confused when I saw posts with the same avatar but after taking a closer look at the names, I wasn't confused. I don't think this is a big problem.
