Default An AMAZING Guide to Follow When Choosing An Avatar

Hello!
I ♥ ! It is a FANSTASTIC website! And one of my favorite things about is the avatars. I love going on avatar websites every week or so to do what I call "avatar shop". But when I pick an avatar, I use these guidelines, which I think are important for everyone on to follow.

How animated the avatar is. My favorite avatars are ones that are animated. Animation just brings the avatar to life! But, too much animation is just not pleasant! If an avatar is too animated, it can become very distracting for people who are trying to read that post. It will cause members to stare at your avatar for 5 minutes instead of using those 5 precious minutes of their lifetime to read your thoughtful and helpful post.
Also, super-flashy avatars are a problem to people who are prone to having seizures. In some cases, seizures are triggered by super-flashy light patterns. This is why Gingerly made a sticky about not using super flashy backgrounds on your profiles.

How appropriate the avatar is. This is a pretty obvious one, but still important. And I don't think I will have to sit here and type out what's appropriate and what's not. I think that you, my treasured member, were born with this amazing skill called Common Sense, to decide if the avvie is appropriate or not. Here is the secret to an appropriate avatar:
Spoiler: show

If it's not appropriate for a 6 year old, it's not appropriate on

Bottom line: If you are in SERIOUS doubt about if that awesome avvie you just picked out is appropriate for , then PLEASE PM the avvie to a mod or admin, but please do this BEFORE actually using it.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I hope you take this into concideration!
♥Madison (I Love Summer)
