    I don't want people to see me at first glance with my avatar, our avatar is what is seen on the forums. My profile picture is actually of me.

    I started to yesterday. It's more personal and I will work on filling up my profile more & more as i go along. It's a form of social media like instagram or anything else.

    Why don't you?

    I don't care if people do/don't know what I look like, and my avatar is more for my own interest than anyone else's to be fair.
    Used to have my own face on there for a while but I get bored of seeing my own :unimpressed:

    too hot
    May I suggest you see your GP about that?

    Chronic heat flushes and the like could be problematic
