They've been up and running for a little more than a week now, but what do you think of the dynamic avatars? Also, do you think they are encouraging reviews or having no effects, and what do you suggest to improve the dynamic avatar system?

I like them. And they definitely encouraged reviewing for me.

EDIT: My only beef is that some of the hairstyles don't fit right on the heads. The shaggy female hair and the spiky hair, for instance. There probably isn't a way to fix that, but I still don't like it.

They're pretty cool, and it has obviously increased the amount of reviewing.

I think they're good. I know that I've been reviewing more because I need more points lol, so it forces me to get off my lazy bum and start reading poetry and such. Plus, it's a lot of fun trying to customize them.

Personally, I don't really like them- I just don't like the way they look.

They should have a 'fro-type hair, for the minority of people (including me) with 'fro(e?)s. Yeah. The selection's kind of narrow, but they're cool.

I really don't care for them much. I think my Avatar is much pretty than any of the offered dynamic ones. However, they seem to encourage the younger members to review, which is a benefit. I'm torn. Whatever. I'LL never have one.

For some reason when i try to put a tunic on mine it doesn't show up. Also i think there should be more hairstyles

I don't particularly care for them. I like my avatar(s) and will keep using the regular ones. Many more options that way.

I can draw my own people, thank you very much! ;)

But I guess they're kinda cool. It's a good idea, in any case. We could use some better looking body parts, especially the face.

I can't seem to get mine to work. Otherwise, they seem like nice little guys (and girls).

I think I may know what the problem is with yours, Zephyr. I'll work on it later today :D
