I love avatars

Chat sites that I know of that make use of avatars (this note is mostly for laszlo and yammykins):
  • Habbo Hotel
  • Coke Music
  • The Palace

  • Last night I logged on to The Palace for the first time. The avatars aren't necessarily humanoid, and they don't walk like habbos do. You just click a different area of the screen and they disappear from one place and reappear in the other. People change their avatars constantly, too.

    But after wandering through a fireplace in one room and entering an inferno, I found some rooms with more sedate people. I started up a conversation with Rockman EXE, who seemed to know even more about Pokemon than I do.

    He gave me a new avatar so that I looked like the young Batman from Batman Beyond. He was very articulate and friendly. And after a while it came up in conversation that he is 11-years-old and live in Britain, was up at 5:30am and had to go to school in a few hours.

    You're pulling my leg, right Rockman?

    He explained that there are a lot of kids on The Palace, but most of them are "whassup d00ds," which Rockman EXE disdains.

    I had forgotten how articulate 11-year-olds can be. That must be part of the appeal of these chats for someone like Rockman EXE. No one will judge him by size, age, or looks.
  • There.com


(My computer ain't bad-ass enuff to play There.com reindeer games.)

Anyone know of any others? I love avatars. Habbo and Coke Music are both pretty cool, but both seem to be for kids.
