Idle avy along with normal avy

I talked about it with a couple people and they seemed interested in the idea of having a different avy showing when you are idle. Maybe a new item for the featured shop and you would have to own two avys for it to work being able to choose which one showed when you were idle

I think I suggested something similar here (shameless plug) for the tags interface. I'm not against this idea, I sort of like it, but I think it would be a lot more feasible if this was something standardized, like the goldening of avys. So all 'idle' avatars would share the same style and can be made from the existing avatar. I reckon that makes the idea more approachable? I dunno.

Its their choice. i personally would probably commmision a new avi for idling that would correspond to the one i already have


One avatar per person keeps the cognitive load to a minimum, adding another will likely increase it sharply as well as increasing time to recognise.

Simple example is forum avatars, people learn to not read the names but associate the picture to a name. It would be highly confusing if someone had the same forum avatar.

I see many people commissioning a set of avatars for this feature or aeo's

Agreed.

This feature does to a certain extent already exist, although you need to be willing to spend the credits to change your avatar regularly.

It's certainly an idea I think is worth exploring.

I definitely agree with the first part, which is why I suggested the "idle" avy being made out of the already existing avy, maybe by shading it darker and blurring it out some, I don't know.

 

For my idea, however, you would be limited to the number of tags you have (which I can't imagine is more than 2 for the majority of MD?), since you can only associate 1 avy with 1 tag.
