    In many cases, an avatar is very simple, just a photo of the member. I've done that myself. Others who represent a business use the business logo. Recently, however, a new member chose an avatar that pictures an apparently Asian woman who appears to be smoking a cigarette. That got me wondering, how do some members choose their avatar? Of course, there are others who did the same thing I did, others who use a business logo, so that's nothing special. But if you chose an avatar for a special reason, why did you choose it?

    Not much of a backstory with this avatar... I was simply browsing through one of those specialised avatar websites and trying to find something not too geeky or silly... so this suited me! I think it's cool.

    It's a photo of myself with a filter applied over it to make me look a bit more handsome. :p
