I don't really care for them. It makes everyone look pretty much the same.

I agree. I just wouldn't be the same without my little hooded girl over on the left.
I'm not even angry... I'm being so sincere right now.
Even though you broke my heart.
And killed me... And tore me to pieces.
And threw every piece into a fire.

I'm going to be adding a lot of new hair styles, accessories, and make-up next week. No new clothes coming yet as I have somebody else do that for me, although I may be able to add skirts depending on whether or not I learn to draw (fill in the lines part is the hardest).

YAY! I can't wait for accessories! I think the Dynamic avatar thing is pretty cool, but it is true that there needs to be more accessories, pants, glasses, and shoes.

I think there should be certain theme-like qualities that one could choose to fit there writing styles. There could be Half-Dragons and Elves for Fantasy writers, etc. And more variety is definately needed, as people have said.

Yeah . . . Hey, wait! How do the glasses on the avatars stay on if there is no nose to support them?! Anyway, what's the point of having noses if no one can smell?

Whoa, nice use of the old metaphoric phrase.

And, but really, we need noses to...make the avatars more unique-looking.

I guess they are okay except for the fact that mine is still pretty much without clothing...guess I need to start writing more often. LOL!

Can you add a separate space for using static avatars, though? The dynamoes are fun (Yes, I know that's the wrong word), but sometimes people (like me) change their minds and want normal avatars.

Right now, I am working on something to allow that. Basically, in your profile, you'll be given two options; a static avatar or a dynamic avatar. There will also be two radio buttons; one for static, the other for dynamic. So if you have the radio button for static filled in, then only your static avatar will show; even if you have created a dynamic avatar.
