Would you care if someone else on the site had your exact avatar? I think some people on here wouldn't mind because they tend to change it a lot. I haven't changed mine since day 1 of the site so I'm not sure what I would do. I noticed someone else on here who had a Bob Ross avatar and I got a little irritated but it wasn't exactly mine so the moment passed.

I would kill someone if they had this exact same avatar as me. It is unique and I've had it ever since I joined Giant Bomb.

Copyright lawsuit. Also, I'm trying to get the intellectual property for breathing, if i get it anyone else breathing but myself can be punished by law, wish me luck guys!

#4 Posted by MordeaniisChaos (5730 posts) -

@MiniPato: Unique? lol

I'd be confused mostly, as I made it myself from mostly things only I have access to.

#5 Posted by Afroman269 (7387 posts) -

@MiniPato: About that.

@TheDudeOfGaming: You always change yours anyways.

#6 Posted by Hizang (8532 posts) -

Nobody even knows who my avatar is, I am not worried.

#7 Posted by Yanngc33 (4461 posts) -

Someone on this site does have the same avatar as me but he's not very active so it doesn't pose a problem… if this wasn't the case, I'd deal with the problem in the same way I deal with all my other problems: i'd murder someone

I would shank them.

I will look for them. I will find them. And I will kill them.

Well now I am really mad. But not to the point of murder. Maybe if he also has that avatar in tandem with a blue name.

#12 Posted by Vonocourt (2168 posts) -

Someone had the same one of Sam from Sam and Max a while ago, so I changed it. IIRC I got this image straight from the DVD, so I would be kind of annoyed if I saw someone with the same exact image.

well, im the only one here with this avatar but its only an album cover...  i would be irritated by it

@Afroman269:

You were SO asking for this. XD

#17 Posted by Afroman269 (7387 posts) -

@MiniPato: The guy is banned anyways, it's just funny that he was there before you...also I see that avatar all over the place here.

#18 Posted by TheDudeOfGaming (6078 posts) -
@McGhee_the_Insomniac: Yeah he was ;D
#19 Posted by Autumn_Thunder (96 posts) -

I'd be really happy because it would mean at least one other person appreciated Commander Andy and his unique anime way of celebrating military victories.

#22 Posted by Hailinel (25205 posts) -

I suppose if it were to happen, I'd feel flattered. Well, unless that person pretended to be me. Honestly, given some of the weirdos I've had to deal with, like an insane stalker last year, I'm surprised it hasn't happened.

#23 Posted by Green_Incarnate (1791 posts) -

It would be kinda weird, since I drew this in MS paint.

#24 Posted by jkuc316 (981 posts) -

No one would dare copy my Avatar, COD SUCKS!

Well I was joking because this is the default avatar for anyone with a PS3 as their console of choice, hence blue name and snake avatar. (I checked it because its the only console I have). I'm just too lazy to choose a different avatar and I see no real point seeing as avatars are tiny here.

George Ice Cube! (Found the image in your profile) As for the avatar thing, I would probably just end up changing it. It's just a cutout of a sombrero I found and I just added some color to it so it wouldn't be hard to go back in and give it a re-skin.

That was my second one, I used to have a Diddy Kong one before that. But I didn't like those to much because those characters are big names, plus a bunch of people already had both of those avatars. Nobody has my avatar!

I've had it happen once, I just switched to something else. It was the demon tongue of Frakes.

It's the Ice Block dude from Banjo.
 
 
Anyway, one time one dude had my avatar. This is the only avatar I've ever had besides the default one, so I was slightly irritated. Also, dude only had like <100 posts.

#33 Edited by supermike6 (3645 posts) -

Well, the avatar I'm using now I stole from natetodamax, after he stopped using it of course. If someone else decided to use this one I would either do nothing or just change mine again. I don't really care. 
 
EDIT: Also, Christ this thread is confusing.

#34 Edited by Slaker117 (4843 posts) -

I would be a little confused considering I made mine, and probably a little flattered that someone would like it enough to steal. And then I'd ask them to change it.

#35 Posted by Mike76x (558 posts) -

Someone else did have my avatar and it confused the hell outta me once.
"I didn't write that!"
I'm too lazy to change mine though.

Dude. Seriously mind fucked for a few seconds. Asking myself if I made this post. WTF.

#37 Posted by Aronman789 (2671 posts) -

I once found a dude with this avatar, I thought it was kinda cool and send him a PM, he never responded and seems to have disappeared after that.

#38 Posted by Skytylz (4039 posts) -

Well, I've had this one with slight variants since I joined the site.  I ran into this problem a couple months ago, I don't think they changed it and it's hard to tell who was here first.

Before you know it everyone will swap pictures on Giantbomb. You're messing up the flow, bro.

My soul. At least until some people copied it but since it was purposeful I'm alright with it. I made you change to Jeff's old one, thread objective reached.
