    Mine is Meez pic. It only vaguely resembles me, but I've stared at her so long I feel more like her than the picture in the mirror. She's dressed as a university student--a privilege that I never had--because she is here to learn.

    Well, when you're a tree hugging dirt worshipper that's into botany, it just kind of made sense. I don't remember where I found the original image, but I just liked it. Haven't really changed it since, though I think I had a brief phase where I switched it to a picture of an obscure artist in an equally obscure hip hop subgenre...

    Mine used to resemble myself. I built it at a time when I used glasses and had more hair. I wish I remembered the name of the online tool that I used. It may have gone offline for all I know.

    Edited to add: after a bit of research, I feel fairly certain that it was Meez.

    Aww, that's lovely. Owls are a favorite animal of mine. They're special to me as they are the sacred animal of Athena, one of the deities I am devoted to.

    I only use avatars who look like me (according to my husband), but that are not me.

    In this case, that is supposed a nordic barbarian girl, on account of my limited political correctness.

    I'm American and pseudo Muslim of some sort, a religionist that is searching. I'm very ashamed to see that America is not being the country that our Constitution says we are. I can only hope.

    I remain anonymous on purpose. It reflects the secrecy about personal life. All words of people have equal weight ... until you get to know them. It reflects that concept as well.

    Mine started as a joke...in another forum, there was a long discussion about chimpanzee spirituality in which I took the pro side - i.e. argued in favour of the idea that chimpanzees (and possibly other non-human apes) show some signs of being 'spiritual'. I was - not unusually - in a minority of one and was arguing so determinedly that I joked that some of the others might think I was a chimpanzee - and I changed my avatar with that post and have used it ever since including here.

    It is, of course, also a statement about what I am - a thinking ape...that's exactly what we all are - whether we choose to believe it or not.

    And its not a bad likeness anyway - he's a little bit more hirsute and the nose is a bit flat but otherwise....:monkeyface::D
