Poll: How do you remember users by? (191 votes)

Their avatar pictures if they change them it confuses me 64%
Their username 17%
What they write 1%
I remember nothing 9%
Seriously stop making polls you are the worse at it. 9%

Personally I remember people by their avatar pictures and occasionally I get confused when people change them just checking to see if I am the only dope that does this.

Swagger, if a user has no swag I won't remember them.

Avatars.

I probably shouldn't change my avatar so much. :/

I used to be this guy:

Mostly by avatar. It freaks me out (not literally) when people completely change their avatars.

I barely noticed me when I changed my avatar...

The avatar is definitely the first thing I notice about a user, and I think it's the same for most others, but if I really remember a user, then I remember their avatar, their name, and to some degree what they're written, their post count, and their mod history. I'm an internet creep.

I remember only the cutest people on the forum and think about them everyday

...names.

I feel almost like the odd one out here. Yes, I remember a lot of your avatars, but I remember your username if you post a lot and/or are a memorable (whether in a good or bad way) poster.

EDIT: Also, in real life, I remember people's names pretty well but I always have this little fear that I'll attach the wrong name to the wrong face. It's not an entirely unfounded fear, but it also isn't a common occurrence.

By avatar at first. Eventually I recognize users by username.

Their scent.

I assume most people go by avatar. When I met Pascual IRL, he noticed me by my GB shirt and came up to me and I already knew what he looked like from his videos and stuff but I told him my name and avatar and said he didn't recognise me for not being a girl with blue hair :P

I tend to remember usernames more since I used to frequent boards that either didn't have them at all or were a board where everyone would always change them. Partly why I'm guilty for changing mine from time to time as well.

I don't have that fear, mainly because I identify people by face so much that I don't ever remember a person's name. I have reverse prosopagnosia, it seems.

It's the eyes. It's always the eyes.

Their charming personalities. Also their Avatars.

I mostly just remember GBers based on who has blown me and who hasn't. Hi @zeforgotten!

(I kid, I kid.)

Oh man. If I ever go to a PAX I'd probably just have to cosplay as Pimp Suit Rich Gallup.

It used to be by avatar but recently I've started noticing usernames a lot more for some reason.

#70 Edited by MordeaniisChaos (5730 posts) -

Generally avatars but most of the people I know by their avatar I know by their name as well.

There are also a few people I know by... other means. Speak of the devil! I can always tell a @branthog: post from the rest.

I wish this was a multiple choice poll, since I don't do it just one way.

I don't.
