Original avatars... a dying breed?

I don't know about anyone, but I visit other forums and sometimes I am surprised to see seemingly different posters sport familiar avatars to those found here.

Heck, avatars used here a while ago seem to pop out again on other users. I can't keep track of people switching handles, that's hopeless, but there are a few I am sure are not the same people.

To those who created their own avatars, kudos to you, but can you be sure it wasn't stolen by someone else at some point and used without your knowledge? :)

I personally don't give a shit if somebody before me used a Garbage Pail Kids avatar or not. I like it so I'm using it.

I made this one myself!! Everyone else is copying me!!!

I'm a liar

But who are you to talk? You're "too good for an avatar" avatar is SO overdone.

Mine came from a wallpapers site, but I seriously doubt anybody wants a giant dragon eye staring at them when they exit Firefox, so I think I'm safe.

If anyone else is using this avatar, it's been stolen. I had this custom made by a friend when I first began posting at the old NN board over 5 years ago. Tried and true, I suppose.

I must confess...I've stolen an avatar from another forum once. :lol

But like the one I have now, I make them all.

Noone's got mine due to lack of interest.

Respect your 70's Blaxploitation, dammit!

I wouldn't be surprised if mine wre stolen, nor do I really care. None of the ones I use, aside from my FFXI ones, are personalized. So I can do very little if I see anyone using them anyways.

I have my animated avatars made for me by someone who knows how to do that shit a lot better than me.

While I love Tobias, I think it's time to go back to my ol' standby.

If anyone wants to spread the good word about ferrets in other forums, they are heartily invited.

I like your avatars. Even though I've never seen any of the shows starring that guy, I still get the impression he's funny.

I feel like a real moron now....but I always thought that those avatars were actually of Demi. What show is that guy from?
