I think having a "real or fake" avi doesn't matter(i assume that real is a picture of how you look and fake is virtual), it is perfectly fine to have anime character in it, i mean even shinji don't uses his photo. But do not use someone else photos, you wouldn't mind being called a poser(as your just behind your screen) but how would the person feels if he/she saw her photos in your profile. A self conscious person might take it very seriously as she wouldn't want to give anyone the impression of someone else personalities! it's very rude D:<

Personally, maybe due to my old/young age but i feel that it doesn't matter how you look like in person, in photo. But it would be more interesting if you at least got a picture of yourself in your album, so it would be an eye opener to people like me, i'm chinese and i know how asians look like but i can't really differentiate caucasians, not that they look alike but i'm curious of their differences in eye colors, hair and even the structure of their facial appearances it would be educating, though some of you can tell by one look but i don't even know what's the difference between australian to a german.(in terms of appearance) but can tell a korean and a japanese definitely ;D


Lol I wonder if Americans like myself even know our lineage well enough to say what area we look like we're from. Honestly we have a little bit of everything so I don't know if we'd make a good reference

haha so americans are like chinese. but I am able to tell Chinese apart from countries though china wouldn't be easy.

If it makes you feel any better I'm a Caucasian and I can't tell where any other Caucasian person's ancestry originates just by looking at them XD


haha aw. I feel stupid. my Aussie friend told me that he is able to differentiate by seeing their faces :/ so im tricked I guessed. hmmp


You will know the difference when you know what the differences you are supposed to see between the different white ethnicities.

I'd much rather everyone had fake avis rather than everybody having real ones, since I'm pretty sure quite a lot of people won't exactly be "eye-candy"

I like it better when i dont know the person sitting behind the computer. Makes everything from forum discussions to chatting more interesting.

It dosn't matter, I would rather see a funny avi than someone's facebook pic I guess.

I think there are positive things to be said either way. A real photo shows the actual person behind the post, but a "fake" avatar often says something about the personality of the person.

I also believe in the fake avatars show the personality of the person with them.

Though my avi is kinda weird. Mine is Ryoma because I like Prince of Tennis, but me and him have almost nothing in common except our passion in an activity. Mine is animation while his is tennis.

Also I don't put my real picture on here because this site isn't like Facebook where I'm friends with people close to me. These are just friends to talk about video games and anime with. Nothing worse then putting up a real picture of yourself and having people swarm over you for your looks and not your interests on this site.

Fake avatars can also add a bit of mystery, which can make getting to know someone a little more fun. =)

But I'm with dtierce, a real picture shows you what they look like while a "fake" one can tell you something about who they are. Though to be fair so can their photo, or rather choice/style of photo..

I enjoy looking at the colourful 'fake' Avii's i love noticing how Artistic, humourous and mysterious some can be,
I'm not one to judge someone by their looks, sometimes its nice to see a pic of who my CR are in real. I only ever look at their photos once i know and chat to them anyway.

Most of the time ill tell them personally to say im going thru their photos xD

Doesnt bother me without though. I dont use it as my Avii often, i like the artistic avii's and also I'd like to think i caught attention through what i speak, my interests n so on and not what i look like. I put a few photos on my proffy,
jus so friends can know who i am if they are curious.

I don't put much emphasis on avatars, so don't really care either way. I focus more on the actual discussion more than who posts what.

lol im asian, i do have trouble with caucasians. but im pretty adept to to figuring out the type of asian. i'm rarely wrong, unless influenced towards an answer. if you look back in most asian history, most countries isolate themselves from one another. so there alot of reoccuring traits that you can recognize from people of a certain area.

but im usually right because im able to distinct traits that i see on a big occasion. for example im not use to how koreans look, i don't watch k dramas. but in the end its usually instincts.

if your around a certain group enough you can easily figure it out.

lol sometimes people use avi's of other people or ulzzangs.. so im never sure O.O if its real or not.. like i've seen a few people on here claiming the picture is them when i know for a fact it's not. Some anime avi's are done really well or are funny so i dont mind both really ^^
