    It doesn't show up and it seems you have an avatar (when it shows) so what suggestion do you need? It's not really a big decision tbh.

    It's nice if you're after a small white question mark in a small blue box. Doesn't say much about who you are, unless you're a mysterious type of person...

    I don't know, it shows up fine over here. Maybe the internet is faster on the continent?

    So now I see it. Suggestions? I dunno... hard to say because no one knows you or what you're interested in or like. So I say, use whatever 'Tar you like.

    you could ask probing questions and we could arise at an answer?

    A reflection of your interests perhaps? It's impossible to give a definitive answer, I think the idea is to use your imagination.

    Surely it is far too much of a personal thing to be open to the suggestions of strangers? :)

    I know mine changes (too frequently I think) depending on life events or the like.

    Your German eagle by GifHaas obviously has a personal meaning to you. So stick with it. There are worse. :p

    These may be stupid questions, but where do you find avatars? do you have to design them by yourself or there is a database somewhere? are you allowed to use avatars found via google freely?

    If you want custom avatars, animation etc. You can download gifbuilder from either the app store, or google it.

    I think it was free, but I can't remember now. Look at the FAQ about Avatar size in the forum FAQ sheets.

    Create your own, it's pretty easy to do.

    I agree with others who say use something that reflects your personality or interests. The overall idea of the avatar is to have something people will see and recognize as classic acidfast7.

    It's a novel idea to ask for suggestions, but as stated earlier, it's a personal decision, not a group effort.

    Given this, maybe I'll suggest you use this. ;)

    I think you should stick with your current one.

    But only if you are of the feminine persuasion. ;)

    The picture thread should answer that question, hopefully.

    Not necessary, just read your thoughts in the Dating Ex's friend thread. ;)

    So, Sassy in pink invokes feminine characteristics to me. That is just me.
