Who's REALLY fussy with avatars?

I'm one of them; if I see somebody with a cute or nice high-quality avatar (e.g. Condesce's, Paril's, Azie's, OreoVal, AnimeFanFTW), that tips me over a lot in deciding whether or not to subscribe to them or add them as a friend. There's like a 0% chance of me subscribing to a person with some "3D" picture of Herobrine as their avatar, no matter how much I like their work; that's how fussy I am.

I'm also really fussy with my own avatars; edit edit edit edit, post new post new post new. My frequency of posting isn't to the extreme (e.g. normal Facebook users) but I definitely like to have a little avatar change once every half year (compare mine which I changed from a picture of an F-16 to 結月ゆかり over a Japanese shrine background).

Who else are concerned a lot with avatars? To the point where they do indeed make a significant difference?

I don't really notice avatars. They kind of serve as a way to associate the name with a 'face'. It doesn't really bother me if they're not top-notch, but trollish avatars do sometimes deter my attention.

Personally, I feel it's rather rude to determine if you're going to subscribe to someone based on their avatar. I judge people by their content, not their choice of avatar.

Seriously, seems a tad shallow to judge someone on their avatar.

Counter-question:
If you do sub to someone for their avatar, what do you do if they change it?

Incorrect counter. He, and many of us, don't sub FOR the avatar, the avatar just has an actual part in the decision for the original sub.

Most likely still be a subscriber to that person. It doesn't really matter to me if someone changes his avatar.

My opinion on this also depends on whether or not their avatar was actually created by them or just borrowed from another person or work, regardless of how good it looks.

I would be, but I am by NO means an artist and I don't know one closely, so without a good way to get a good avatar image I just don't really care about it.

There has to be always a first time. Don't forget. Noone close to me is doing graphical stuff on a computer. Just look around a bit, and when you see something that you like and are thinking "Gosh, that actually looks good. Maybe I can try to make something like that aswell!". Then do a bit of research, and try to develop some skills :p Takes time though. I've spent half a year to reach what I can do now. But I'm going off-topic xD

I honestly associate that ore texture with you. If you want to change it, otherwise leave it.

Okay, I guess avatars are kind of a way to define people. I'll probably leave it then.

I was actually reluctant to change my troll-avatar to the one I currently use d:

Not intending to be rude at all, but your avatar just looks like another anime woman with strangly large eyes, which is used quite frequently on a lot of forums

I usually just see a build I really like then sub to whoever made it.
Usually for me goes straight from build to sub rather than build, page, sub.

Often times I'll see a pretty unique avatar who has nothing I'm really interested in (skins) sooooo...I usually won't sub to them. It's not that I don't like what they post, I just don't take much interest what they're interested in.

...

now that I look at it, where'd the subscription projects box go on the front page??? Love that thing.

I could say that I'm not fussy with avatars, but with my current one I kept pausing and playing a trailer so I could get a shot that wasn't blurry. And maybe I'm not so fussy with my own because they're all from games.

As for other people, if someone has an intricate avatar alongside good work, I'll certainly subscribe. However I'm less picky with other people's avatars because I prefer their work.

I'm currently working on my avatar, making my skin in 3D just like my signature (Which has also been made in Blender3D) Takes some time, but is probably worth it. I don't really like my avatar, even though it doesn't look bad.

Click to reveal
"Aethroz"
"viktorjanpaulis""What's your reason for not liking people with "high-quality" avatars?

"TheHipster"
But I'm still confused as to why you have a problem with high-quality avatars...


Read more carefully. It says:
"Snowyfox"if I see somebody with a cute or nice high-quality avatar, that tips me over a lot in deciding whether or not to subscribe to them

It tips Snowyfox over to subscribe. In a good way. Basically that is one of the major factors in the decision of whether to sub or not.

Yeah, I just realized I wrote that sentence in a strange way, but yes, it tips me over to the plus side; in a good way.

And yes, if you actually look at most of the people that posted here, they indeed have really good avatars (some here have just sub-standard avatars like me and PengoPenguinRocks (imo! Don't eat me!)).

"Azie"This avatar took me like 8 hours to finish... THE DITHER ON THIS THING WAS A LIVING, WALKING NIGHTMARE, so I really appreciate it.

That is indeed a very long time for an avatar, but hey, the end result is worth it.

But anybody who take avatars REALLY REALLY seriously? Like not just be quite fussy with having a nice personal avatar or getting an impression from another person, but absolutely refuse to do something like sub if the avatar doesn't look nice, or would instantly sub if the avatar is a great piece of artwork?

"XDInsanity"is my avatar bad D:

I would count that on the same level as OreoVal's. So, yes, it's thumbs-up worthy
