  • Changing avatar

    Last time I played poker about 3-4 years ago some friends wanted me to change my avatar and put up my pic.So I obliged and got alot of flak from the guys about being old and no hair blah blah blah....the ladies seemed to like It , but whatever I didn't care for the most part.

    Since I've already changed it once I can't change it again and was wondering If an email to pokerstars may help or can I just make a new account and transfer my bankroll to it ?
    I guess my question is , is that allowed ? a second or new account ?
    I'm tired of the BS from everyone and I get the feeling my name doesn't make them any fonder of me.

    P'S. I'm not bald(yet) its just really blonde and shaved every summer so its hard to tell in that pic

    ***moved to PS support JWK24*** Hi Deanihilator! You cannot make a new account. That is a big problem if you have multiple accounts, as it's something that can get you banned from playing on PS. What I would do is to send an e-mail to and tell them your situation. They're the ones that can change it for you. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

      Ya I kinda figured.Someone said if i was being harassed enough they would change it for me , but I doubt they'll change it for something so trivial.
      Can I not just delete my account and make new one ?
      Wait what if my gf wanted to play on same pc she can't make her own account on my pc ?

      I defintely don't want to get banned ,but I'm going through my options here

        You can't just delete your account and start again.

        If your gf wanted to play, she can from your pc on her account only. BUT.... with 2 accounts playing on the same PC, you'll have to be very careful.

        Multiple accounts and multiple players on the same account is a major TOS violation.

        The best thing for you is to e-mail support and have them change your avatar. I've seen them do it for a number of players. It can be done.
