Could the Kuler Team consider a third possibility?
Can we not have the ability to make ONE change from whatever we first created (when none of us probably yet knew what we were doing; and were just trying to find out how to make the thing work at all?!)
The ever-changing "Last One" idea seems pretty pointless if the idea of the Avatars is to be an identifying "flag".
I agree with Ann. The point of an avatar is to be a consistent visual identifier. An online brand. If it doesn't stay somewhat consistent, it is just taking up space. Of the two options given, I'd prefer keeping my original.
If we stay with the first theme created option, it might be helpful if new members learned how the avatar works when they sign up for kuler. Just a quick blurb would help. Otherwise you usually learn by doing and ...oh no, too late.
Out of curiousity, what happens to your avatar if you delete the first theme you created? Does it substitute it with the next oldest theme or do you just lose the avatar entirely?
Interestingly my avatar is the one which is my most popular and not the one I published first. The one I published first is a theme called landscape and does not appear in 'my kuler' although it is on the site. Of the two available options I would stick with the first theme until we can design our own. It would be fair for newbs if they understood that would be the case, though.
Hi everyone, many thanks for your input! We'll stick with the status quo for now. We hear you on user control of the avatar. :-)
Boyd: You are lucky your avatar worked out, for whatever serendipitous reason!
Just a quick reply on this - if you either delete your first theme or set it to private (by editing it & clicking Save) - the next oldest public theme is used. If no public themes are found then the oldest private theme is used for you avatar.
