Top Ten Questions to Ask Yourself About Your Profile Pic

Profile images are like an art form. They express something. But how to choose? You probably also wonder whether to keep yours.

The Top Ten

1 Do I like it?

Naturally. I wouldn't keep it if I didn't. - Britgirl

Yes, I do. I added it about 3 years ago and I'm not planning to change it. And this is the only profile pic I've ever had on this site. - Metal_Treasure

Yes I do! My best friend drew it for me.

The #1 question. You're entitled to your opinion and make your choices. - Cyri

2 Does it look good?

To me, yes. But to others? I guess it depends on your views on cute butterflies and the name "Tina". - Britgirl

Wouldn't this be the same as number one, if you like it means that it looks good; of course any avatar you pick are going to have its haters - germshep24

I think so, but it's subjective. However, many users told me they liked it a lot. - Metal_Treasure

I think that's subjective. - CharismaticKat

3 Do I want this image representing me?

Let's see, I like rap music, edgy stuff (even though I'm anti rustler), and digital art so yea why not. - CharismaticKat

Well I'm kinda like the infamous one here and sith lords are seen as bad so I guess so - darthvadern

I think that depends on perspective, Darth Vader is seen as a cool character, with redemptive qualities, on one hand he was the puppet for the Empire, but on the other he did take out the emperor so is he really bad - germshep24

Yes. Clovers represent luck, which luck represents my username. - Luckys

Yeah but more like I gotta represent my team - Randomator

4 Does it fit my content?

My content is pretty diverse so perhaps it doesn't fit directly my content but it fits my ideas of life, relationships, diversity, aesthetics, infinity, and more. - Metal_Treasure

It does fit your content, I mean it is something that looks kind of like an infinity sign, meaning your content expands multiple types of content, your name on the other hand throws you in the metal fandom category, well that and jewelry, but it is a pretty iconic user name - germshep24

Most of my content has something to do with music so yep. - CharismaticKat

Example: My content will soon involve dragons more if I get ideas. - Cyri

My content involves mario and movies mostly so yeah - darthvadern

5 Will I change it?

I change it on occasions, but I'll always go back to it and its warm, sentimental familiarity. I can't be without Twitter & Flitter for long. - Britgirl

A profile pic can't really become iconic if you keep changing it, though if you keep it themed maybe people will get excited to see what you change it to next.

I know I'm a bit attached to mine that it freaks me out when I see another with it on another social site - germshep24

If I make a better one down the line, perhaps. The profile picture I currently have up was supposed to be temporary in the first place, I simply stuck with it longer than I thought. - nerffan8000

I'm not planning to change it anytime soon. - Metal_Treasure

6 Will admin approve?

It is kind of a silly question because more than likely they will approve it, unless your pic idea is a marijuana leaf or something else that's controversial - germshep24

He already did. - CharismaticKat

He already did. - Metal_Treasure

This is why someone hasn't made his fanfics his profile pic, in all likelihood. - Cyri

7 Is it offensive?

Not in the least. But as I said before, it depends on whether or not you're offended by cute butterflies and the name "Tina". - Britgirl

Hopefully you don't run into a user that had a traumatic experience with butterflies - germshep24

If you add the text "Nazis are god" and mean it, it's offensive and you should not use it. Or be anywhere near me. - Cyri

If you think a image of Beaker is offensive, then I think you should check out Tumblr.

Only the weak would be offended by Gangster Mitch - Randomator

8 Is it interesting?

It is more if it will get people you like to gravitate towards you, because most images with intrigue someone.
Even if you don't have a picture if you around long enough people will wonder why you don't a a picture and if you just chose a color why out of everything your picture is just a red block - germshep24

When you're new, people often see profile pics as ways of seeing if you're in "their crowd." Or at least I do. They're good looks into personalities. - Cyri

Gangster Mitch is more than just interesting. He is elite - Randomator

I guess so but I'm biased, haha. - Metal_Treasure

9 Does it have more than one meaning?

Meaning comes from the eye of the beholder, one person can see a mario picture and think o they're a Mario fan others can see it as a representation of the user character - germshep24

I don't think so. - CharismaticKat

No,it just fits with my name - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

Album Covers? - LightningStrike

If it does, great. - Cyri
