Unluckyly for you, Dark, the mummify avatars are all female. This forum requires more male avatars. Hypercat38649.7215162037

I agree Hypercat.  Although it's fairly obvious most forums consist male, it would be great to have a better clue.

But if there were more male avatars how many men would use them? For "a better clue", should an avatar represent the person as they are, M or F for example? Or should it represent an aspect or slice of their fantasies & desires?

I'm usually one for putting up an avatar that is linked to me -sometimes in the form of my own artwork or, more likely, a picture ofmyself. This time i've done neither, hehe.

I wouldn't say it's necessary to display or indicate what sex you arethrough the use of your avatar - i'd be stuck straight away! Fantasies and desires is reasonable here so I have no problem if that's what people choose to display.

Should we get with the 21st century program and go for equalopportunities...? More male mummies to show we don't discriminate!Hahaha

Ok, Darkraptor- I will go with fantasies & desires! And Zoe has a point too- more male mummy avatars would be great! I can see that I may be switching avatars depending on my mood!

I have a stock of avatars that I have been working on, many submittedby Hypercat, that I will be making live in the next day or two. Most of them will be male to help set the balance a little.

On another point, I think I mentioned it earlier in this thread but Isee avatars as representing the fantasy or desire and not therealism.  Those who choose to use an avatar of themselves or adepiction of themselves are merely living the fantasy already.

Here is a question for everyone, since I am a crossdresser would you all expect me to use a male or female avatar? I prefer to use female since that is what my crossdressing represents.  I don't wish to decieve anyone to thinking I am female but when I am dressed and enjoying bondage that is the side of me that comes forth.

That's an easy one.  Do what you want!   There are no set guidelines, only personal preference and viewpoint.

Hey, you use whatever picture you like and let no-one tell youotherwise (unless it's the all-powerful admin, hehehe)! I'd do thesame, and when I do make Avatars out of my own pics, I 'go female' forthem, as it's how i'm most comfortable - especially in an environmentwhere it's considered nothing unusual .But the Avatar is a personal choice, whatever it contains... be it apicture of a girl tied up, a picture of your favourite TV show or100x100 pixels of MS Paint squiggles

I tend to use a picture of myself (or, for my livejournal, several pictures of myself 8-)

Whether that looks male or female is up to the viewer *grin*

The avatar I'm using simply expresses my desires or fantasies as a top (or a sub top! ). But could it also be an expression of my anima? Anima definition- "an inner feminine part of the male personality in the analytic psychology of C. G. Jung". Franzia38654.932349537

GU, would there ever be a time where the forum could no longer hostunique user Avatars? No real reason for my concern, I just wonderedabout it, but there must be a limit as to how much space there is...

Zoe - I can't really see that happening.  The space the forum usesis only about 20meg out of an available 80gig.  Bandwidth might bea concern, but that's why I keep them all under 50kb.  I guess ifthe forum was ever that popular the ads and stuff would easily supportthe appropriate internet service.

80GB? Wow! Our little Avatars are insignificant size-wise then! Unless we had a million members, each with their own animated GIF....

Nice avatar selection by the way.  Better pics than a lot of actual sites IMHO.
