Recently students in my IP 10 class were in the need of an avatar for their blogs profile picture. We needed a profile picture so we can attract readers and shows that our blogs are active. The website my teacher told us to use was doppelme, a website solely made for creating avatars.
Once the site fully loaded it took several seconds for the website to register clicks from my touchpad. This made it extremely slow and painful to make an avatar. When the options of customizing the avatar finally appeared there was a lack of options for design. This forced me to create an account for extra features. It was a long and tedious procedure to create an account, ironically it was easier for me to create a PayPal account which proves how terrible the website truly is. I had to fill in a lot of information and got an email 5 minutes after I registered. To my disbelief I had to put in a code which was around 11 letters, included in that email, they created a password that was odd and confusing even though when I registered before it told me to create my own. I would warn anyone from this website due to how bad the experience was for me and will try to refrain from that website whenever I can.
My avatar represents me in many ways. First of all, I tried to make him look like me, but the options were very limited. My camo shirt represents my style and clothes I like to wear. I tried to make the skin colour like mine but there was an issue on the website where all of the colours looked off.
