I've been relatively active on the DDO forums recently, most notably the Games forum.
But what I find interesting is that whenever I see a person with a certain avatar, and I see them over and over again, I almost develop sort of a mental image around that avatar. As I've never seen that person, I sort of keep thinking they look a certain way when in fact they have a totally different appearance.

Does anyone else experience this?

Better to clarify than to have a misunderstood person.

It's kinda funny because Sapph is a girl, but her avatar is a guy (Unless I really am that blind). I also see Harder as a puppy.

I was asking what OP thought of me, but thanks anyway.

I think Zaradi looks like a late teens early 20s male with short brown hair with blue eyes. He has a mildly girly face.

I think Bsh is a tall and in his 30s, brown hair.

I dont know.

I've seen Zaradi, and this is scary accurate.
