Avatar Obsession



Avatar collecting, in most cases, is no longer done by finding them on your own and in due time. People are now frantically looking for cheat sheets, kind people willing to lend them money and items, and multiple accounts to get you there sooner. What used to be casual and fun in the beginning is now a sport where if you don't have over 200 you don't know anything about them. Harder avatars, i.e. Faerie Queen Doll, are just as easy as getting what are now called "clickables", i.e. pet pages. This devalues many of the avatars...
