Some people on Worthy don't have avatars, some do.
Is it idolatry to have an avatar? I don't think so. God made us all individuals with different personalities. Even God himself uses symbolism. As long as you don't worship your own avatar then I don't see any problem.
But why did you choose your avatar? What do you like about it? Do you like the colour, the shape, or were you just being practical and found a picture that you could shrink to the right size?
Some people just use photos of themselves and others like to take pictures from elsewhere and use them. Others design their own.
Tell me about your avatar.
After all,it's the symbol that people recognise you by. When scrolling down the Worthy forum boards we spot the people we know by their avatars more than we do by their names.
My avatar is based on a coat-of-arms that I devised myself but roughly following Medieval English form (with a bit of artistic license). Tell us the story of your avatar and why you picked it. Even if you change it from time to time, it doesn't matter. There's a story behind that too.
Let's have an informal chat about avatars. I love colour, shape and form. I want to know your story. Let's have some fun too.
