2. The avatar size restriction has put a kink in my plans.  I had one ready,   but you couldn't read it.  I guess it is back to the trenches.

Bring it!  (See that's me being thuggy.)

3. I don't really have a question about avatars.

I don't really have an answer about avatars.  I just like posting.

Aha!  That's what I thought  BUT

Katebo, TheVoid99 and Wilson all have avatars that are 100X100 and they are hosted offsite.  I think that's a restriction if you're going to upload them to this server.  And Katebo's is 170Kb in size so again I think the restriction is for server side hosting only.

I think I'll just create an an animated GIF that has the entirety of BLUE VELVET squashed into 100X100... :)   OK maybe not...

Nunis,

I love the avatars in your post, especially the one from Airplane!  "I can make a hat or a brooch or a pterodactyl"-guy is my favorite part of that movie.  To be fair, I will judge only the avatar you use in your profile, but I give big ups to you for being so creative.

Everyone,

Remember there is still time to change your avatar if you want.  I will judge the avatars after I lock the thread and before I announce the winner.  The thread will be locked on Saturday, 11:00am US Central Daylight Time (GMT -6:00).

Thanks a lot to everyone who is participating.

-Alex

Great suggestion on the 2000th board member, but I just noticed something.  We get new registrants every moment, and most all of them are spammers.


Good call, seeing as the 2000th member was:

Let's tell him what he's won!

If it makes you feel any better, Magnus, there seem to be a whole lot of Russian spammers who added themselves to the memberlist en masse a while ago.

Mine is a picture I took when I was in Scotland.  I have no idea where I was, anyone from Scotland or any world travelers recognize this photo?

So... I tried to change my avatar, and the ones I tried out didn't work, and then I couldn't put back the one I had before. Any ideas why? Did the size limit change recently?

I don't think so, but my avatar is actually stored offsite. I created an account at photobucket.com.
