This question has been closed by the author.Is Pogo doing away with individualized chat icons?

I received a Pogo Research Survey at my email address. One question asked whether I like more animated-looking (like the new HD characters) or a little more subdued game characters. The more subdued ones were like between the Java/Flash character versions and the new HD versions. It also gave me a chance to say why I liked one over the other. Another question asked whether I would prefer the more animated-looking characters or the little more subdued version of the same characters as my chat icon. This time, it did not give me an opportunity to make any comments. If given the chance, I would have said “neither”… I like using favorite badges as my chat icon, but if I couldn’t do that, then I would opt for my avatar. Why would I want to be in a chat room where every player has one of only a few available icons (multiple Word Whomp gophers, multiple Spikes, multiples of the lady from Jet Set, etc.)? Are they now going to take away our ability to use our favorite badges or our avatars (both of which we are able to change as the mood hits us)?

    This is a good question, however only Pogo can to give you more information on this; anything else would be speculation. (Though I suspect the survey questions you listed here paint a pretty good picture.) Pogo is pretty tight-lipped these days about what they’re planning but it wouldn’t hurt to try to ask. Wherever Pogo_Llama collects questions for her bi-weekly blog post might be a good place to ask — I think it’s the comments of the most recent one, but I don’t think she leaves comments open for very long anymore.

    This gives me a good idea about what is going to happen to our minis after March. And I’m not happy!

    I’ve thought since this started that they wouldn’t take our minis. But I couldn’t figure out what new members would do if there was nothing available for their mini. This is going to be another nail in Pogo’s coffin.

    I’ve posted questions to Pogo Llama on the blog comment section, and she has answered a few or mine, as well as others concerning the Mini Mall. But she has been very careful with her answers, and manages to sidestep a lot of questions altogether.

    One thing to know is that even if your question was the first submitted you may not see it until 5 or 6 days later, long after you think it wasn’t posted at all. I usually wait until a week after the blog to go look to see if I received an answer. It usually takes over an hour to go thru all the pages, and that’s just skimming, not reading every question and answer completely, unless it’s really interesting.

    I’ll be ready next Tuesday with my very pointed questions.

    in reading some of the things ive seen in the blog and in the forums.. concerning the new games.. it was said that to enable chat you had to click on the enable flash.. so i wonder if and when flash is gone.. what about chat also and does that explain whats happening with the mini..i have decided at my age i am not going to let my myself get upset over things i have no control over and just wait and see..i too have bought everything available in the mini mall.. have so many items that i never bother to look anymore to try and find something…remember back when pogo questioned about having different tiers of membership.. nothing came of it..i think they have their hands full trying to change over the games.. at a rate of 2 or 3 a month they will never have them all done in a year.. so i will just concentrate on getting the badges done i have purchased.. and not worry about the things i have no say in or control over

    Thank you all for your responses. I will try to post it on the blog… I got away from reading it when I was busy a few months ago and have never gotten around to catching up on what I’ve missed, so I really need to do that. MomsBassetHound, I’m glad you will be posting on this topic as well, as your questions and answers are always very pertinent and informative.
