Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information

....it does though.

I set my avatar as Betty Blue Eyes (animatronic pig) just because....she's my current wallpaper on twitter (because I've shot her and seen the show and I love her!) and also because the default avatar is a pig face. But it's (the default) a scary pig face - it is A Very Sinister Pig.

 

Please could either of the following happen...?

 

1. the default is changed to something less disturbing

or

2. everyone on here changes their avatar to something else?

 

I'm happy to change!

Interesting choice!

I have changed the profile picture. It is now an image of green cigarettes. This is taken from a recent news item. Apparently the Australian government thinks that making fag packets green will stop people smoking. Our government believes that stopping power station chimneys smoking will make Britain green.

The pig faces are a bit sinister and don't seem to be encouraging people to change to a more pleasant avatar!  Perhaps having something ultra bland like the silhouette of a figure might urge people to change.  Seems to work on facebook/twitter etc. Perhaps people like the sinister pigs!?

The purpose of the unattractive avatar is to encourage members to choose something more attractive. We would welcome suggestions for better ways to do this.
