    Why do most of the paid members (Demis/Contributors) have a pill in their avatar?

    It is supposed to represent the Apple TABLET. Weird, but I have it too.

    I sort of guessed that, but wanted to be sure.

    Who started it?

    What makes you think that is the reason, if there even is one?

    Who told you???​

    As a former contributor, years back, I can say with near absolute certainty... the reason is to make you ask why.

    Point noted.

    I remember earlier today, somebody else made that mistake, and I was like "hmm, who would ever make that mistake". And here I am, making that mistake.

    I do, but only because I get paid salary, so technically, I get paid for being wherever I happen to be.

    I didn't say it was or wasn't, or that there even is a reason. I just want to know what made you think that, and why you changed your avatar.

    Doesn't bother me.

    It is curious, though. You'll blindly follow others here into doing something that you don't understand - because of a hunch.

    What do you mean, weird? Don't you decide what avatars you have?

    It is weird that someone put together a "pill (tablet)" and a "Computer Tablet". Should haven chosen my words better.

    All I know is that there are way too many users in this thread with the same tablet avatar. :confused:

    There's something weird going on in the forums. Thoughts on Time Travel


    I'm a demi and not only do I NOT have a tablet, my normal avatar disappeared. The Business Man with the nose :(

    Actually, I hadn't noticed this until you pointed it out. What gives?:confused:

    I think some members are experiencing a serotonin imbalance. Chill.

    First, thanks to whoever unlocked this thread.

    Second, Why was it locked?
    Third, Is it supposed to be a play on the word "tablet", signifying that it will never actually live up to it's hype, if it comes out?

    Why was it locked?- I think because it got kinda off-topic. I mean, it was almost a three page thread, and now, only one.

    I'm not really sure EXACTLY what it is supposed to mean, but looks like the Contributors/ Demi's know.

    I'd say they lean more towards a severe mental imbalance instead, something a little more than clinical depression.
