I have been thinking about changing my avatar for a few days now, and I think I've decided against it. I've had this avatar for probably over a year now, and that got me wondering. How many other people on this site have had their avatar for a long time? And when someone has their avatar for a long time then randomly change it, does it throw you for a loop? I know that for me, I do actually get used to seeing an avatar more than their actual name, so, when they change their avatar it really does throw me off. That is, unless they change their avatar on a regular basis anyway. I was also wondering how long I actually HAVE had my avatar. I remember that at one point there was an avatar hoarding award on the stats page that said who's had their avatar the longest. I think that'd be cool to have back since I bet I'd be on that list.
