You are, however, right in that the meltdowns the current av provokes means it should stay.

That's a good point, but I do gotta vouch for the fun little process of discovery for the rest of us when we slowly begin to realize they changed the newbie avatar as you notice more and more BonziBuddies or GARBAGE DICKS popping up and generally making bad posts and then you realize you haven't seen the old newbie av in a while and 2 plus 2 is four and you get a little chuckle.

Yeah that is fun, also I was wondering where this thread went then found it and I was going to post this from some other thread:



It's apparently some kind of weird wool suit sex fetish, which is a pretty funny undesirable thing to have as your av, but at a glance to most people it probably doesn't seem like anything horrible.

Slap the "Stupid Newbie" text on it, and it would be good. I know if I reged and was like "whats this av I have supposed to be?" and someone told me "wool suit sex fetish" I would want to change it.

Also it looks stupid and funny.

I prefer my submission of Ernest Cline's stupid face, but this is very solid. If the admins give it a custom title under it like "Wool Fetish Doll" or something, it might help.

I doubt everyone here read that other thread, especially since this thread was imported from another subforum. But, this thread is a 100% real request by the mod op for suggestions to change the newbie av, not just "make jokes about it", though yeah it should definitely be funny.

Or maybe you live a life where you see a weird wool suit and it is super obvious to you it's a weird fetish thing and can't fathom why that wouldn't be a given to everyone else. Then I don't know what to tell you.

Let's be honest here. The current default newbie av is.... unfortunate. I know I'm not alone in worrying that it might give newcomers the wrong impression if they don't know that it's just a joke default av. I've already known several posters to mistakenly think it was genuine, and I've heard a secondhand story about a lurker / SA newcomer being scared off thinking that SA was super into... that guy.

Trump av made me, a disabled poor, give Lowtax realbux to get it off me. Unclean, unclean. Ergo, 45 should stay in some form.

Fair enough, the fat orange man being on there isn't terrible but saying trump lover on it is more what might give a newcomer the wrong idea imo, thinking they just walked into the_donald or something
