    Is it like being incognito around here to do so? :lol:

    It just seems like it would be fun to change it up sometimes. What do you do?

    A lot of people have changed theirs. Some do it all the time. I havn't because I forgot how to change the pixals on the picture to get it the rite size to post it. Maybe next spring I'll think about changing it!

    I changed mine to a Halloween theme. Next month I'll change to a Thanksgiving and so on. It's fun to find new ones.

    Just go up to "My Profile" at top of page, scroll down to "Avatar Control Panel" and "Remove" the current one, then select put in a new one! Easy and fun! I think the size is about 2 inches square. If you need help resizing let us know :)

    There is a tutorial here, on how to use an online resizing tool:

    No, I've been happy with mine, it was so traumatic, trying to resize it, I vowed 'never again' LOL, but then I didn't see the above web address. I can see why people like to change them, but I lose them when I am looking for them - that is just a personal opinion, but it takes me time to get used to the new one. That is getting old for you!

    I'll change mine once I have a quilt or quilted project finished. Right now, my avatar is a piece of my beginner class project. Before that, it was a drawing of a sampler quilt block I was having problems with. I don't know that I plan to change it at regular intervals. It'll be more as the mood hits me or I have something better or more "me" to use.

    AtHomeSewing, yours is beautiful! I'd miss that if you changed it.

    I haven't changed mine for a long time. Maybe I will someday but for now I like the one I have.

    I thought about changing mine, but I like the "narcoleptic" bat on the sidewalk so I'm letting it stay for now.

    I change mine sometimes...but when people change theirs, I don't recognize them for awhile. I tend to look at the avatars for friends and when I see a new one that I've never seen...I think it is new person on the board :wink:

    Yes, that is my biggest concern, not that anyone seems to know me anyway!

    I just changed to a pic of my sewing room. I used to have an avatar of a block I made at a Carol Doak class. Carol was a hoot, but I've got very tired of looking at the color combination in the block, so I thought I'd try looking at something that does makes me happy. :D

    And that is a BEAUTIFUL runner, and a nice idea...mine wouldn't change very often though, if I had to actually finish something! :(

    It is that way for me too.
    It would be really strange if we HAD to put photos of ourselves.

    I changed mine. I had a picture of myself at first, but I didn't like seeing myself everytime I posted. So I changed it to a quilt I had made, and I liked that better.

    Yes, ma'am - that is a bat. I think it is/was a Mexican free-tailed bat. It was just asleep on the sidewalk.

    I think about it from time to time, but I like my Lieber and his quilt.
