    His name is Iroh

    As for Avatars that stand out in the playground, Mauve Shirt, Morodokai, Serpentine, Phase and Sneak come to mind.

    I always remember Serpentine's avatars. Who else has a giant snake-legged person as an avatar?

    I also love CurlyKitGirl's avatars, since they're well drawn and creative.

    I think it has to do with those who create and mantain a definite and stable visual identity. It's not only about having a single avatar forever, there can be variations to it within a theme, and that's trickier to pull, especially when the theme is not so evident.

    I think that presence and exposure to the avatar and the username is what does the trick. Not necessarily the person behind it.

    Memorable doesn't necessarily mean famous.
    I dislike a good number of people who post frequently, and so I would not quantify them as famous.

    Default Re: Famous Avatars?

    Aside from the quip about "you can't spell 'infamous' without 'famous'!", wadledo might have a point. If we still had animated avatars, and someone had one of those retina-searing fluorescent animated .gifs, would that be worth celebrating? On the other hand, I am not considering the person using the avatar in my selections. If anything, I'm looking at the artist and wondering who it is (since I have signatures disabled, and only rarely remember to View Public Profile for a temporary sig display).

    I used to have a famous/memorable avatar, but I guess everybody forgot about it, so maybe not.

    I don't really think I could make a list of famous avatars. I've got nearly all the custom ones cataloged somewhere in my head, which means the only filter I can apply is 'which ones are/were my favorites?' Or... is that the point here?

    Oh no, Phoe, your avatars are recognizable In fact, I'd say yours are one of the most memorable ones on the forum

    For me, I recognize avatars of the people I chat with on regular basis. Some, like Atreyu's, Goof's and few others are known to me, even if I don't speak to them often. But I memorize all avatars pretty well.

    No. Yours would be memorable if we saw it a litlle more often. Gwyn'ap'Nud's old avatar, the skull, was very memorable.
