    Is it just me? Since the software switch who are all the new people with post counts? I am here everyday and have never heard or seen half the people posting.

    I think that many people changed their names.

    Also the avatars can throw you off, in one thread a member changed his avatar halfway through the thread, and I thought I was talking to a new poster.

    I wondered if everyone had changed names or what.

    The avatars threw me for a bit because without them, I learned names, but with them I only look at the avatars, so everyone that didn't used to have one looked like a new poster to me.

    Noticed a lot of new names but I've been scarce around here also.

    Same here. All the changed avatars has confused my small brain.

    I'm definitely one who connects an avatar with the person. Back in the HC days, I really thought JJ Pistols looked like Lemmy.

    My avatar has remained the same for years now too.

    How are you doing Gordon?

    Doing well. Thanks for asking. Facing a major crossroads in a few weeks that I honestly didn't think I'd ever be faced with, much less a couple of months short of age 60. But, as I like to say, it's all good.

    Hope things are well for you, too.

    Hope all works out well for you.

    I'm 60 next year, I'm hoping for just a week off.

    When my luck changes, I'll consider changing my avatar. In the meantime, consider my life to be incredibly unlikely :facepalm
