An avatar is simply that... the reason behind ones choice for avatar is relative to the individual. None of us should really care why it was selected. As for that signature pic... I enjoy it each and every time I come across Lineage posts. We should keep in this is just a community forum for a game... let's not take all this so serious.

A few years ago they removed a single breast from a picture on a wall in Aden (too offensive?), silly censorship after years of being in our virtual world.

Don't waste your time on the comments posted by player haters. Don't get me wrong... I enjoy Linnda and all she does in our playground.

Enjoy the game.

The Eternal President of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea is Kim Il-seong:

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...Portrait-2.jpg

Kim Jeong-eun, the gentleman on Lineage's avatar, is Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army, First Secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea (the Eternal General Secretary is Kim Jeong-il), Chairman of the Workers' Party's Central Military Commission, and Chairman of the National Defence Commission of North Korea. That's why there are so many photos of him in a military context

Technically Kim Yeong-nam, the Chairman of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly, is the president of North Korea:

Back when I worked Vault, we did staff interviews. Sadly, those are lost to the Abyss now, but we had some great ones.

I can only interview staff if they're willing, though!

Sure I think it would be fun to read their interview's, but not to update the bio's on the legacy site. For one thing that's L2 history, hence he legacy part. Second I think it would be disheartening to see just how much the staff of NC NA has shrunk in size.

But yes, I think their interview's could be fun and informative.

hopefully like Vali they participate and in time add a section to lineage2.com with the current team bio there are some mods I see on the forums like Wavirox etc so I'm sure there are some more hiding in the background

His avatar is the what Yidao just explained. Like Aconyte's profile picture it would probably provoke some very unhealthy and negative responses from the community...well probably if it was the same community 6 years ago. Now its full of anons who have the mentality of /b/ anons. The avatar is lulz so no one would care.

I'm Asian. I find the recent rush of K-Pop Stars and J-Idols extremely objectifying. Seems like every non-Asian nowadays has the Asian fever and does a whole lot of crap that p!sses me off from experience.

I guess we could ask him to change his sig to 2 asian guys enjoying some lollipops, but I dont think that would be as welcomed as his current one.

Still dont see how it objectifying.

Should you not be happy everyone loves asians?

It isn't really that we have a fixation with Asian's per se,if you look at that sig it's more about the innocence they are trying to portray. For instance any cute female dressed as a parochial school girl in pigtail's would elicit the same response from us. It's the innocence thing.

I'm liking my current avatar atm, but I have other's, and let's just say they involve bouncing. I may decide to run with one of them sooner or later, pre apologies if this offend's, as it's not meant to, just another of those thing's we guy's like.

Now why do females have this fixation with Justin Bieber, and guy's like him Linnda ? Something we males don't really get, LOL.

You don't read very well, I asked no such thing. I did ask why females like Justin Bieber, and this still remain's a mystery.................

Also Yidao said the same thing you said when you were trying to "correct" him, this also point's to a lack of reading comprehension.

This is getting a bit away from player spotlights, but please try to read every word I wrote. Kim Jeong-eun, the person on the avatar of which we speak, is overrated, both in North Korea and abroad. In reality it's nondescript old men who pull the strings

Kim Jeong-eun has the positions I listed, but he is not president of North Korea. It is Kim Yeong-nam who will sign a peace treaty with president Obama. To keep it simple, it is Kim Jeong-eun's job to make sure that the North Korean nukes are properly delivered and detonated, while it's Kim Yeong-nam and prime minister Bak Bong-ju who say where and when

As a primary source of information I can warmly recommend the Workers' News:

As you can see, it's censored here. The url is www.r o d o n g.rep.kp/en
